One of the most beloved stories of all time is coming to life in the motion picture event for the whole family, Mirror Mirror. A fresh and funny retelling of the Snow White legend, Mirror Mirror features breakout star Lily Collins as Snow White, a princess in exile, and Julia Roberts as the evil Queen who ruthlessly rules her captured kingdom. Seven courageous rebel dwarfs join forces with Snow White as she fights to reclaim her birthright and win her Prince (Armie Hammer) in this magical comedy filled with jealousy, romance, and betrayal that will capture the hearts and imaginations of audiences the world over.
Lorsque son père, le Roi, meurt, Blanche Neige est en danger. Sa belle-mère, cruelle et avide de pouvoir, l'évince pour s'emparer du trône. Quand la jeune femme attire malgré tout l'attention d'un Prince aussi puissant que séduisant, l'horrible marâtre ne lui laisse aucune chance et la bannit. Blanche Neige se réfugie alors dans la forêt. Recueillie par une bande de nains hors-la-loi au grand coeur, Blanche Neige va trouver la force de sauver son royaume des griffes de la méchante Reine. Avec l'aide de ses nouveaux amis, elle est décidée à passer à l'action pour reconquérir sa place et le coeur du Prince...
Mirror Mirror is another traipse through the fairy tale of Snow White, this time without animation or songs. Oh, there's a poisoned apple, and a magic mirror, and a houseful of dwarfs living in the woods, not to worry--and of course, there's a wicked queen, embodied by Julia Roberts in witchy mode. The pure-as-driven-you-know-what heroine is played by Lily Collins, and here poor Snow is expelled as always from the magical castle and left in the forest, where she comes upon the dwarfs. Now here's easily the best part of the movie: the seven dwarfs are boisterous highwaymen, stealing from passersby while wearing springy stilts (the spirited crew includes Danny Woodburn, from Seinfeld, and Jordan Prentice, from In Bruges). Also giving it a game try is Armie Hammer (The Social Network), as the prince who wanders into the middle of the tug-of-war between queen and princess. Hammer's charming, and the movie has the superficial visual gloss of director Tarsem Singh's previous efforts (including The Fall). But the breezy tone and tongue-in-cheek approach are ultimately so facile they leave you with nothing much to care about, and the Disney cartoon classic seems dark and tough-minded by comparison. Dopey, you never looked so good. --Robert HortonSee all Product Description

Al thought it is not a word for word retelling of the original it does have all the right ingredients: a princess, a prince, an evil queen, dwarfs, a poison apple and a magic kiss. (even if they aren't quite present in the way you would expect) This movie is totally family friendly although there is a monster that my scare young children and some parents may be offended by some of the queens action, it is a very clean movie. There is no swearing whatsoever, save one "For the love of God" and names like jerk and idiot. The violence to me was not that bad, i happen to like action movies so for the most part the fighting was tame and at sometimes lame, although perhaps that made it more realistic.
I'm not going to go into detail about the story line because it has so many surprises that I might accidentally reveal one. In fact I would recommend not reading reviews with in depth story lines unless you don't like surprises. There are some cool twists some of which I, unfortunately, knew beforehand because I glanced at a in depth review. My sisters had not read the review and so were more surprised(although they did say it was hard to follow at the beginning something I did not find perhaps because I read reviews)
I really enjoyed the movie and felt it deserved a review. I hope that this was helpful.
In one scene Nathan Lane is turned into a cockroach. I thought it was a jab at Franz Kafka.
They tried too hard to be cutesy. I must say the absence of animation or songs was refreshing. As usual Julia Roberts made a nice witchy woman. Unfortunately it's also one of those productions that contain ancient close and contemporary snotty language not potty mouth just snotty.
It's worth a one-time view to see an alternate version of the story then it is forgettable.
this new take on snow white,not like the Huntsman's with Charlize Theron which was more
dark and sinister,and not so kid friendly and totally surprised me,because i had no
intention of seeing it,the parts with Armie Hammer was very funny always loosing his
shirt,and i also like the way they did the Dwarfs scene,i don't think Julia Roberts need to
ask if she's the fairest of them all,Very nice movie and only one Song at the end of the movie
by Lily Collins who's father is the great Phil Collins,
Yes, "Mirror Mirror" is yet another movie in the series that I like to call "Movies That Let Tarsem Singh Down Because He Didn't Write Them." This comedic retelling of the Grimm fairy tale "Snow White and the Seven Dwarves" is not actually a bad movie, mostly due to Tarsem's focus on the dwarves and the prince -- but the excessive wackiness and the wooden acting of Lily Collins don't do the story justice.
I won't bother summing up the origins of Snow White, because everyone probably already knows it. In this version, the evil queen (Julia Roberts) has been ruling the kingdom for ten years, ever since the king (Sean Bean) was presumed dead because of a monstrous beast in the woods. His daughter Snow White (Collins) has practically been a prisoner for that decade, not realizing that the queen's expensive tastes are grinding the commonfolk into poverty.
Now that the queen has bankrupted her whole country, she's on the prowl for a rich guy to refill the coffers -- and when the wealthy young prince Andrew (Armie Hammer) turns up, having been robbed and stripped by bandits, she decides he's her next husband.
When Snow White finally figures out how cruel the queen is, she ends up fleeing into the snowy woods, where she is taken in by a group of dwarf bandits with... accordion legs.Read more ›
However, what was fabulous in this movie were the gorgeous, elaborate costumes and the sets and special effects. They make seeing the movie a worthwhile experience. Actually, they raised my rating of the movie from three stars to four. I'd love to see a book with photos of the costumes and sets. I think the people behind the movie were more talented than the actors in the main parts.
So while I would recommend seeing this movie, I don't consider it a keeper. And by the way, regarding the comment from one reviewer about the weird ending. This is a typical Bollywood film ending - probably a sort of signature by the director, Tarsem Singh. While a bit disconcerting in this movie, it's also a fun, uplifting ending.
