The movie's greatest flaw may be its passive-aggressive approach to the Grimm brothers' tale. Timidity doesn't suit reinvention. But endings being so important, the movie finally puts the pieces together for an entertaining finale.

Charming, funny and beautifully designed, this is a hugely enjoyable fairy tale comedy with a witty script and terrific performances from all three leads.

It's entirely fair to say that a huge part of the "point" lies in creating a physically plausible version of an illustrated storybook. A+ all around on that count.

You'll laugh intermittently, but more often, you'll notice where you're supposed to be laughing and aren't.

What's surprising is just how clearly Singh has left his fingerprints all over the film.

Such light comedy is right in the Julia Roberts wheelhouse, and she clearly relishes the chance to flex her proven timing while inhabiting a villainous character.

The sets and especially the costumes delight the eye, even if the action they are meant to support is rather static...
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

The sets and special effects are unremarkable, and no honest mirror would tell Julia Roberts that Lily Collins was fairer than her.

The tweens should enjoy it, and it looks beautiful for sure, but Mirror Mirror doesn't quite have the depth or humour to fill its 106-minute duration.

A magical muddle minus any real mirrored mystery ... makes sure we all know Roberts is the fairest (and unfunniest) of them all ...

This umpteenth reiteration of the fairy tale has held fast to its most tiresome aspects: Snow White's dull sweetness and the evil Queen's one-track motivation.

This grim offering isn't just terribly unfunny and mean spirited, it's also very boring.

Singh's visuals are - as always - impressive and thanks to a better script this is a far more enjoyable experience than his recent Immortals.

Mirror Mirror is an effervescent and occasionally uproarious romp, which references the familiar elements including an enchanted looking glass and a poisoned apple.

Singh's main fault is identical to the wicked queen's: he can't see the point of anything beyond prettification.

This retelling of the famous Grimm fairy tale tries too hard to be funny.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
April 5, 2012
Weighed down by a script that relies heavily on Shrek-like modern snarkiness in period garb for its laughs, but without any Shrek-like jokes.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

No surprises here, just a fun and funny piece of PG eye candy.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
April 4, 2012
It's inconsequential, campy fun but a sharper and funnier script would have made it more memorable and entertaining.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
April 4, 2012
With the ludicrous Bollywood-style finale having nothing to do with the rest of the movie, you do wonder if Singh has dared to look at his own face in the mirror since he put the film to bed.
