Very funny. I thought this might be enjoyable,but did not expect to laugh a lot during it,pleasant surprise.
It is a comedy style snow white,rather than the darker side you usually get with this story.
You get the basics,such as the king and his daughter,the mother dying,the evil queen and her servants,the dwarfs and the handsome prince.
But there is a surprising amount of laughs and they do enough differently to the norm to make it worthwhile.
Indeed the evil queen becomes enraged with jealously,wanting Snow White dead and her main servant reluctantly goes to do the deed.
But though the basics are certainly there,i was happy to see the changes weren't dopey and they certainly didn't make me grumpy (sorry,couldn't resist it).
The prince provides a lot of the laughs and some of the visuals are great.
So if you want to see Snow white with an amusing difference,check this one out.

It’s not too difficult to see why Mirror Mirror made the least impression at the box-office of 2012's two Snow White reimaginings: while it goes for all the tongue-in-cheek staples of the traditional Christmas panto short of throwing in a pantomime dame while trying a bit of female empowerment – like Kirsten Stewart, this Snow White fights back after a training montage from a band of thieving dwarves – it all falls a bit flat. The script’s a bit weak, Lily Collins’ Snow a bland heroine whose eyebrows are the only thing about her that makes much of an impression, Julia Roberts alternates between hamming it up as the wicked queen and sleepwalking through her role as her mirror image while for a director more noted for his visual than his narrative sense, Tarsem Singh doesn’t make much of the visual opportunities offered by the stylised sets and costumes, often filming them in a surprisingly flat and unimaginative fashion. More problematic is his lack of the kind of deft comic touch material this thin needs to work: the dwarves, better drawn than usual, and Armie Hammer’s Prince Charming have their moments but too often the jokes drop with a leaden touch and the fantasy seems purely by rote rather than from the heart. Even the impromptu Bollywood musical number finale doesn’t add much joy to the watchable but rather mundane air of it all and the spin on the poisoned apple scene with a gloating Snow leaves a bit of a bad taste in the mouth. Not exactly a stinker but still a bit of a misfire.

StudioCanal's UK Blu-ray features the same extras as the US release - 5 deleted scenes, three featurettes, a 'virtual storybook' and trailer - with a decent 1.85:1 widescreen transfer

There have been 2 movies about the girl who has trouble with red apples out in 2012 and this one couldn't be more different from Snow White and the Huntsman.

Firstly, the colour of Snow White and the Huntsman is all grubby and muddy browns with dirt under every fingernail and people going for weeks without getting the shampoo and conditioner out. Mirror Mirror on the other hand is bursting with colour and sumptuous costumes and sets. It is also considerably lighter in tone than the Huntsman film (wouldn't be hard) but it still plays the story fairly straight and doesn't send the fairy tale up too much. By the way it's not the exact Brothers Grimm or Walt Disney Snow White stories that are being told in this film. It shares some of the same elements as these other 2 sources but puts an original twist on them. Most notably in the parts where a kiss is used to revive a loved one and in the apple scene right at the end.

Mirror Mirror has the very gorgeous Lily Collins (daughter of Phil) as Snow White and she makes a very appealing, engaging, resourceful and intelligent heroine. A modern heroine then but one that never loses her femininity or charm. Or at least not until the end when she shows that she could be a biyatch of a Queen herself. Revenge is sweet!! Overall her character is definitely a lot more fun and appealing than K-Stew's.

Snow White is ably supported by the 7 dwarves (real dwarves here as opposed to Snow White and the Huntsman's cgi ing of normal sized actors on to small bodies) who all have distinct characters and who are very funny and wonderfully loyal sidekicks.

This is a fun and entertaining take on the classic old fairy tale.

Snow White is charming, The Prince is brave, the Wicked Queen is properly wicked and the Dwarves are funny.

Whilst the characters are recognisable and the story sort of takes the same path as the original, this is effectively a complete re-write of the classic, so you can watch this film and not know exactly what is going to come next.

This is a good film if you've got an hour and half to while away, and don't want anything too heavy. Very enjoyable.

Although not exactly a masterpiece, this film is a very pleasant, very amusing and very nice moment of cinema. It doesn't pretend to have other ambitions than to give us a merry good laugh - but in this mission it succeeds very nicely.

This is a very unorthodox retelling of the Snow White fairy tale, but the principal characters are all there.

The Evil Queen (Julia Roberts) is probably the main attraction in this show. She was "modernized" (she is in fact a gold digger exhausting financial resources of successive husbands) and "upgraded" (she can do REALLY BAD magic - it is not just disguise and poison). Her Magic Mirror is also much more powerful than earlier versions. Julia Roberts clearly had lots of fun playing this character and she is simply excellent! She is also very atractive in this film - frankly, I think even more attractive than Snow White... And the scene in which she takes care her of her body, face, skin, lips, hair etc. to better ensnare the Prince Charming is worth an Oscar!

Snow White (Lilly Collins) is of course also more "modern" than the one in Disney classical movie, but she is definitely not a modern teenager. She is brave, clever, funny and has much more ambition than just being rescued by the Prince Charming, but she is also a true lady: she is always impeccably dressed, never raises her voice, never curses, is always polite (even to the enemies) and although she can swordfight if necessary, she has also all the charm (and timidity) of a very young girl who was never allowed much out of her house... Last but not least, she is clearly a real future queen material - because with all her charm, manners and timidity she can also be ruthless, when necessary...
