Box Office - 03/29/2012 3 stars out of 5 -- "This often hilarious, wickedly clever slapstick take on the Snow White fairy tale is downright blessed by the presence of Julia Roberts as the Evil Queen..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 03/28/2012
"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....It's great to look at..."
USA Today - 03/30/2012 3 stars out of 4 -- "[An] offbeat visual feast....Singh brings cheeky humor, an eccentric sensibility and an enchanting look to his re-imagined tale."
Los Angeles Times - 03/30/2012
"[T]he fable zings along on the sharp comic timing of the cast, led by a royally wicked Julia Roberts."
Movieline - 03/19/2012
"The picture is gorgeous to look at....MIRROR MIRROR has a great deal of energy and wit and color..."
Hollywood Reporter - 03/29/2012
"There are stunning elements, chief among them the magnificent costumes of Singh's regular collaborator, the late Eiko Ishioka..."
A.V. Club - 03/29/2012
"MIRROR MIRROR opens with a lovely animated history of Snow White's life and her kingdom's history....MIRROR MIRROR fits neatly into a long line of cinema fantasies that get by on homemade charm and visual verve."
Sight and Sound - 06/01/2012
"Roberts's performance has an unabashed zest....The film's settings are ravishing, particularly the palace whose east-west decor is an engagingly kitsch mix of gilded French rococo and THE THIEF OF BAGDAD."
The timeless fairy tale SNOW WHITE gets a dazzling makeover by visionary director Tarsem Singh in this fantasy adventure starring Oscar winner Julia Roberts as the Evil Queen and newcomer Lily Collins as the fair-skinned Princess Snow White. When handsome Prince Alcott (Armie Hammer) falls for angelic Snow White, the jealous Evil Queen seizes control of a magical kingdom and casts the orphaned princess into exile. Meanwhile, as the diabolical queen schemes to win the heart of handsome Prince Alcott with the help of her bumbling servant Brighton (Nathan Lane), Snow White befriends a gang of pint-sized thieves who will help her to reclaim her rightful place on the throne and win back the man of her dreams.
