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.

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.

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...

Welcome to Snow White's story flipped on it's head. I was expecting this to be a typical re-telling of the classic tale, but actually this hilarious, cute story sees Snow White on an entirely new story, difficult to even relate to the original, as she tries to escape the clutches of the evil, but funny, Queen.

Julia Roberts steals the show with this movie. She is perfectly cast and I was so impressed with how funny she was whilst still seeming disgustingly despicable. It's the perfect twist to the classic tale. I guess you could say this story combines a lot of fairytale themes with a handsome prince, evil villain and glitter. But I also loved that the story injected a rainbow of colours and was full of weird and wonderful creatures, fancy balls and adventures in the woods typical of the genre but also had some darker, more exciting elements too.

The plot moves quickly, has lots of action and some sweet-natured romance - I know it's embarrassing to admit, this is ostensibly a children's film and I'm a fully-fledged grown up, but I loved it! It's therefore fair to say this story is ideal for children and adults alike. There are fantastic elements of nostalgia for those of us familiar with the original, but there's enough going on to keep even the younger children on the edge of their seat.

It's difficult not to point out the simplistic nature of this movie. The plot isn't anything especially new, and is a little predictable sometimes as a fairytale would be, but I think the abundance of creatures and laughs makes it easier to look past this. I also loved the Sean Bean cameo! Definitely worth a watch.
