Mirror Mirror (2012)
Critic Consensus: Like most of Tarsem Singh's films, Mirror Mirror is undeniably beautiful -- but its treatment of the age-old Snow White fable lacks enough depth or originality to set it apart from the countless other adaptations of the tale.

Critic Reviews for Mirror Mirror
Credit director Tarsem Singh with the flickers of originality you'll find.
You can only disappoint your fans so often before they turn and run in droves. Just ask Roberts' close friend, Mel Gibson.
Mirror Mirror features over-indulgent story moments and, at times, hammy performances but still delivers a mostly fun riff on the Snow White story.
While it may not be as memorable as his other good projects, Singh has delivered a film that should delight audiences of all ages because of the timelessness of the story and the spin the writers have put on it.
Mirror Mirror is an aesthetically fantastical yet ultimately tedious film that may occasionally please the tots in the audience. However, it will leave adults far less enchanted.
Audience Reviews for Mirror Mirror
The best version of this familiar tale floating around in cinematic circles, helmed by Julia Roberts with a light touch and ably seconded by Nathan Lane's best performance ever. All the familiar ingredients are presented in a fresh way and generally speaking it's a fun time at the fairy castle of ye olden days.
Julia Roberts seems to be having a lot of fun in this amusing satire that plays with fairy tale clichés as a feminist take on the classic story full of witty dialogue and with a solid script that is much more inspired than Snow White and the Huntsman, even if not remarkable.
A charming, creative (and uneven) re-imagining of the Snow White tale. Entertaining performances by Armie Hammer and Nathan Lane. Julia Roberts was a disappointment, seeming to have dialed it in with the passion and skill of a high school drama teacher.
