    Who wants to see a fairy tale that weighs a ton? Mirror Mirror reflects badly on everyone involved.

    'Mirror, Mirror' is a trippy version of the Snow White story.

    A booster shot of testosterone lends kinetic kick to director Tarsem Singh's visually inventive interpretation, without shortchanging the requisite froufrou or sugarcoating the story's dark Oedipal heart.

    Mirror Mirror features over-indulgent story moments and, at times, hammy performances but still delivers a mostly fun riff on the Snow White story.

    While it may not be as memorable as his other good projects, Singh has delivered a film that should delight audiences of all ages because of the timelessness of the story and the spin the writers have put on it.

    Mirror Mirror is an aesthetically fantastical yet ultimately tedious film that may occasionally please the tots in the audience. However, it will leave adults far less enchanted.

    The tone is campy and fun, although Roberts is better with the lighthearted dark comedy side of her role. Still, the script is light and witty, poking a lot of fun at itself and the visual artistry is absolutely gorgeous to look at.

    Mirror Mirror is not a travesty. It's missing something though. The whole film plays like a Muppet movie with the actual Muppets cut out.

    The ill fit between Mirror Mirror's screenplay and its director's sensibilities dooms the comedic fairy tale from the outset.

    It's never clear what "Mirror Mirror" is saying about the Snow White legend, or about fairy tales in general. It feels like a narrative without a story.

    The Queen sees herself in the magic mirror which is a nice twist. But it's a slightly altered version of herself. The movie is like that, too -just a little bit off while trying hard to be "on":

    A sweet and endearing take on the Snow White story buoyed by solid performances with one exception: Julia Roberts.

    This film was a relief to watch after Singh's bungled action spectacle last year, and while it isn't as good as The Fall, it does at least get him back on track.

    For the extraordinarily gifted Tarsem, Mirror Mirror is a mere lark, but it's still everything Shrek wanted to be, and more.

    Sometimes it's funny, sometimes it's not so funny, and sometimes it's excruciatingly un-funny.

    There are exactly seven reasons to tolerate the beautiful artifice on display, but those are-ahem-little reasons, to be sure.
