Just a limp, jokey family film that wants to have its fairy tale magic and its hip irony, too.

I've been told the movie plays best with very young girls. That's an insult very young girls should not be forced to endure.

This is a movie drowning in flamboyant design elements and in need of a stiff shot of enchantment.

Great, GREAT movie!

By wrude2
This was SO ENTERTAINING! I was leery at first, but LOVED the characters, the plot, the COSTUMES! This movie HAS to win an award for the most MAGNIFICENT costumes I have ever seen. I LOVED this...

Ugh.

By dkosub
Just a mishmash of horribleness. It's not funny. It's not engaging. It's boring. Julia Roberts is not "evil"; just selfish. Ms. Collins is cute but stuck in the middle between childhood and vamp...

Fell short for me

I saw Mirror Mirror at a special screening, a few months back. I took my 8-year old son with me to see it. From my perspective as a 30-something mom of 3 boys: Pros: 1. Julia Roberts makes the...

Very funny! It's not the traditional fairy tale, but it works. Scenery and costumes are magnificent. Julia Roberts is both beautiful and evil as the stepmother. Lily Collins is cute as Snow White....

Wait and watch it for free on TV, not worth movie money!

Julia is a Hoot

Julia Roberts is a hit in any type of movie. This is a pleasant twist on an old tale. Forget reality and just enjoy the story...

Pleasantly Surprised: Captures Much the Same Vibe as "The Princess Bride"

By cinema.cynic
Saw the midnight premiere of "Mirror, Mirror". One of the smartest-written scripts in years! It's fun, self-aware, and takes the time to knock down the fourth wall to ensure the audience is in on the...
