More Info:
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Mirror Mirror has a great deal of energy and wit and color, so much that it sometimes threatens to go right over the top. Somehow, though, it always stops short of being just too much.

  • Claudia Puig

    Singh brings cheeky humor, an eccentric sensibility and an enchanting look to his re-imagined tale.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Nick Pinkerton

    Here, the familiar tale is retold with concessions to feminist self-determination and camp humor, bending the Grimm Brothers' tale without infringing on its basic beauty.

  • J.R. Jones

    Singh is much more skilled as a visual artist than a storyteller, and his artistic fortunes seem to rise and fall with the inspiration of his screenwriters. In this case he's lucked out with Mellissa Wallack and Jason Keller, whose witty script retells the story of Snow White from the perspective of the wicked queen.

  • Linda Holmes

    The performance that lingers after the film like a fizzy champagne buzz is Hammer's. He remains at all times deeply and persuasively sexy, but he also commits utterly to sequences that require a level of silliness that not all traditionally gorgeous young actors can give themselves over to so completely.

  • Tasha Robinson

    All of Mirror Mirror is visually striking, even when it works on no other levels. But the humor is erratic, the heroism isn't necessarily compelling, and the whole thing feels like a grab bag of bits that don't entirely cohere.

  • James Berardinelli

    The result is mixed: the affable, family-friendly motion picture is lively enough to engage young viewers but will prove something of a challenge for anyone who has gone through puberty.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    Mirror Mirror is a sumptuous fantasy for the eyes and a pinball game for the mind, as story elements collide and roll around bumping into each other.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Sheri Linden

    The finery and regalia of their contributions are integral to Singh's vision, giving this mostly conventional princess story its fair share of romantic froth and more than a little moxie.

    Strictly for kids, but pure movie fun nonetheless,

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • Keith Uhlich

    Like all of Tarsem's films, story takes a backseat to visuals, and there's plenty to pop the eyes-love those life-size string-puppet assassins!-if not, ultimately, to stir the soul.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    As reinventions of fairy tales go, this one has some pretty big holes. Not all of the twists on the story work, but for the most part it's well-meaning, goofy good fun.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    A dull and unbewitching movie.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    The Snow White comedy Mirror, Mirror turns out to be not that terrible - or maybe it's that the terrible first half hour wears you down so much that the rest seems relatively pleasant.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    It's hampered further by a piece of star miscasting unmatched in recent memory: Julia Roberts' archly evil queen remains as jaw-droppingly dull as her costumes are jaw-droppingly gaudy.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Andy Klein

    The costumes and design are gorgeous enough to distract us from the wildly erratic tone – some of the time.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Forrest Wickman

    Mirror Mirror is an odd little fantasia of a movie - part jaunty adventure, part broad romantic comedy, part auteurist spectacle. Half the fun is figuring out what the hell you're watching.

    Slate Full Review
  • Sandie Angulo Chen

    As Snow White, actress Lily Collins is a washout.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    Cleverness won't carry it. Nothing less than overarching vision is required; otherwise, the audience will laugh for 10 minutes and then start to check out. And that pretty much states the problem of Mirror Mirror.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    Consistently watchable, even when it drifts into dullness because Mr. Singh always gives you something to look at,

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Ty Burr

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

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • R. Kurt Osenlund

    For all its pomp and fabulosity, Mirror Mirror is actually Tarsem Singh's most minimalistic effort, a dialed-down game board of elaborate pieces that's akin to the human chess set captained by Julia Robert's evil Queen Clementianna.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    Flat and polished is a fine condition for mirrors, not movies. There is imagination galore but no genuine magic in Mirror Mirror, a Grimmly disappointing take on Snow White's fairy tale.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    This is fussy filmmaking, overly made-up (the costume mandate seems to include the buzzwords "coffee filters," "croquembouche," and "Day-Glo paint") and bereft of wit.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Neil Smith

    To borrow a line Roberts spits at Collins, there's something about Mirror that's incredibly irritating. Fingers crossed Huntsman has more edge.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Peter Bradshaw

    It's evasive and feeble; Julia Roberts is not a properly funny or satisfying villain, and yet neither is she the interestingly flawed, even sympathetic figure she might have been if the film had kept the all-important question she asks the mirror.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Olly Richards

    Superlative performances from Roberts and Hammer almost cover the shortcomings. Like most Tarsem films it's a muddle, but this time not one with enough distracting dazzle.

    Empire Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    Poised between revisionist fairy tale and smirking sendup, this gaudy, over-frosted cream puff of a movie half-heartedly positions its famous heroine as a dagger-wielding proto-feminist, yet ultimately suffers the same fatal flaw as Julia Roberts' evil queen: It doesn't really care about anything except how pretty it looks.

    Variety Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    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.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Rick Groen

    Call me Grumpy, but this seems less an adaptation than a random assault.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    Fumbles nearly every opportunity to be funny: the dialogue is flat, straining for wit it never achieves, and the pace is torpid when it should be bustling. But, the couture, darling, is hilariously divine.

    Time Full Review
  • David Rooney

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

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    "Dopey" is too good a word for it.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    There is one big winner in this mess, though. Congratulations, 1961's "Snow White and the Three Stooges": You're now the second-worst movie on the subject.
