Seven dwarves help an exiled princess win back her kingdom.
" Part of Mirror's problem is that the screenplay, credited to two writers and with a third getting a story credit, is all over the place. "
" Mirror Mirror is a film that's all picture and no propulsion, each scene static in a basic set-decoration color scheme of teabag and banana. "
" Loved it! "
" Who wants to see a fairy tale that weighs a ton? Mirror Mirror reflects badly on everyone involved. "
" Singh is much more skilled as a visual artist than a storyteller, and his artistic fortunes seem to rise and fall with the inspiration of his screenwriters. In this case he's lucked out. "
" The dwarves provide wonderful fun, Singh's visuals have true magic and Alan Menken's score is charming. "
" This rambling version of Snow White's tale is a pretty, spun-sugar confection, airy as a plate of Easter egg-coloured macarons and similarly devoid of substance. "
" As Snow White, actress Lily Collins is a washout. "
" All we get are scattered bits of cleverness, some hit and some miss. "
" An attitude of mischief and charm rather than outright satire. "
" It's a clever, luscious-looking fairy tale you really can take kids to - no allegedly family-friendly snot-and-fart humor here - and a bundle of high style and sharp wit and terrific performances for yourself. "
" Here, the familiar tale is retold with concessions to feminist self-determination and camp humor, bending the Grimm Brothers' tale without infringing on its basic beauty. "
" 'Mirror, Mirror' is a trippy version of the Snow White story. "
" Everything looks, well, fantastic. "
" Even if you're as annoyed by the movie as I was, you'll come out laughing the costumes. "
" When the dust settles, all that's left are a few motes of lame comedy atop a few million bucks worth of overdressed sets. Call me Grumpy, but this seems less an adaptation than a random assault. "
" 'Mirror Mirror' is as gaudily spectacular as you expect if you've seen director Tarsem Singh's films, 'The Fall' and 'Immortals'. "
" Singh brings cheeky humor, an eccentric sensibility and an enchanting look to his re-imagined tale. "
" Like all of Tarsem's films, story takes a backseat to visuals, and there's plenty to pop the eyes-love those life-size string-puppet assassins!-if not, ultimately, to stir the soul. "
" The screenwriters of this attempt to do a hip comedic take on the legend were licked by Page 5. Why did they keep going? "
