    Singh indulges his unwholesome weirdness with a kind of innocence, but only in the closing Bollywood number does his folly take flight.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

  • Alonso Duralde What the Flick?!
    The only ones who get the comedy are Nathan Lane and the dwarves.

    It's just that with no real stakes and no sense that any of this has any real weight, it's hard for me to invest.

  • Leah Rozen The Wrap
    Part of Mirror's problem is that the screenplay, credited to two writers and with a third getting a story credit, is all over the place.

    [A] big basket of nutty... There are giant dwarves here, and sexy funny flirty swordfighting, and sweet forlorn heartache, and -- if you stay through the credits -- a Bollywood dance number.

    Visually appealing fairy tale lacks oomph but fine for kids.

    The best thing about Mirror Mirror is a Bolly-wood dance number seen over the final credits...better than the movie that precedes it.

    Though Singh, a famous former music video director, is wonderful at making striking, glitzy shots, he's not particularly good at moving forward.
