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...

Tarsem, the director of 'Mirror Mirror' must rank with Tim Burton as one of modern cinema's greatest visual stylists. The film is a feast for the eyes. The two main settings are the royal palace, a place filled with light and beauty, but with a dark heart, and the forest, a dark, forbidding place where Snow White finds sanctuary. Both sets are stunning. The costumes are equally impressive, particularly those of the Queen's courtiers, who dress like day-glo Regency dandies. The story you'll be familiar with: wicked Queen, virtuous heroine, handsome Prince, seven dwarves, etc, although the movie does play around with the established version of the tale (or at least the Disney one). The poisoned apple has merely a walk-on part, the idea that a spell can be broken by true love's kiss is turned on it's head so that it's Snow White who kisses the Prince to break a spell, and the seven dwarves are a gang of robbers ('beats working in a mine' as one says). The scenes in which the dwarves take on the Prince and the royal guards are like a Cirque Du Soleil show, with them running around and performing acrobatics on stilt-like extendable legs.
All in all, 'Mirror Mirror' is a great family film, although young children might find one or two scenes scary (one in which the dwarves forest home is attacked by giant marionettes, and the scene in which Snow White is chased by the gryphon/snake/wolf creature that prowls the forest). With it's great visuals I'd say try and see it on the big screen, however, it should make for a stunning blu-ray.
