You can only disappoint your fans so often before they turn and run in droves. Just ask Roberts' close friend, Mel Gibson.

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.

The magical back-story makes absolutely no sense. Why does Julia keep flitting back to a wicker-covered island on a vacant lake? What is the mirror's hidden agenda?

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.

A light-hearted take on the fairytale material with a few slight adjustments. Might keep kids entertained but adults might be praying for the tainted apple.

Though the entire production bursts with cartoonish playfulness, it woefully underestimates humour and heart in the process.

Sometimes it's funny, sometimes it's not so funny, and sometimes it's excruciatingly un-funny.

Like Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella with just a dash of Lars von Trier's Dogville, Tarsem Singh's rendering of this revisionist fairy tale is less cinematic than it is purposefully theatrical.

This is just more of the same from Tarsem Singh; high camp and low energy, with decent visuals which in no way compensate for the script's charmless monotony.

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

Lily Collins' Snow White is a doltish drip,..While the often incoherent filmmaker has always favored style over content in the past, he was never this insipid.

It's all a mess, and not very fun. This is one movie that didn't cast a spell on me at all. (Full Content Review for Parents also available)

There's no point of view or narrative purpose to the changes in the story, just a lot of feeble jokes and wan self-referential jabs.

A cartoonish, nonsensical mishmash that falls somewhere between a Saturday morning cartoon and the Three Stooges.

Not since Francis Ford Coppola slapped his daughter Sofia into "Godfather III" have we seen a lead performance this dull, whispered and charisma free.

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.

Roger Ebert
Chicago Sun-Times
March 29, 2012
The dialogue is rather flat, the movie sort of boring, and there's not much energy in the two places it should really be felt: Between the Queen and Snow White, and between Snow and the Prince.

Perhaps the overriding problem with Mirror Mirror is that it mines territory so overworked that there's nothing new or valuable to be found.

The only ones who get the comedy are Nathan Lane and the dwarves.
