    May not be the fairest of them all but it is still pretty good.

    A romantic panto-style romp through goody-gum drops land, full of the best natured fun you'll find on the big screen, and with an inspired performance from Julia Roberts.

    Bonkers but bloody good fun, especially if you're under the age of 10.

    A colourful and sophisticated spin on a well-known tale, recommended for children of all ages.

    So desperate to play it safe that it actually becomes drab.

    The children in the audience seemed to enjoy it and as they seem to be the intended audience then on that level at least it succeeded.

    Lily Collins' Snow White is a doltish drip,..While the often incoherent filmmaker has always favored style over content in the past, he was never this insipid.

    Superlative performances from Roberts and Hammer almost cover the shortcomings. Like most Tarsem films it's a muddle, but this time not one with enough distracting dazzle.

    Younger children might enjoy Mirror Mirror because it's bright, shiny and pretty.

    I don't think you'll feel 'happily ever after' when the film ends, but you'll be pleased enough by its magic.

    This dull trifle forced me to co-opt the names Sleepy and Grumpy for the duration of its running time.

    ...an entertaining and creative retelling of an old fairy tale that should entertain children and adults alike.

    Far below par for a Tarsem picture, if seen solely on the basis of the family film Mirror Mirror wants so badly to be; the very youngest viewers will be sufficiently entertained by the dwarves' hijinks and silly, slapstick humour.

    'Who's the fairest of them all,' is a cruel question to pose to a Hollywood beauty in her forties facing competition from ever-younger starlets, but Julia Roberts gamely takes it on the chin in this tongue-in-cheek reinvention of the classic fairy tale

    Uneven, subversively flamboyant, tediously tweaking the 'Once Upon a Time' concept

    Just like the Queen, while "Mirror Mirror" looks good on the outside ... it's rotting from within. We are far from enchanted ...

    This is the most fun Julia Roberts has been since she won the Oscar - and other awards - for Erin Brockovich in 2000. If only the rest of the cast had as much fun.

    An energetic and amusing family film with just the right balance of the wild, the wicked and the happily-ever-after.

    A project that is big on spectacle but short on both laughs and thrills.

  • Jeanne Kaplan Kaplan vs. Kaplan
    The screenplay by Marc Klein and Jason Keller woefully underutilizes the talents gathered here.

    This sometimes manic and very straightforward film won't be for everyone, but it does have a surprisingly broad appeal.
