This week's reviewed movie is:
Mirror, Mirror

Despite some silly slapstick involving the Queen's attempt to put a move on the Prince, Mirror, Mirror really has very little funny stuff, nor love or romance.

Julia Roberts, I thought, would kick it up a notch as the evil Queen, but ends up being only a bubbly crackpot villain.

Overall I found the whole feel of the movie was a rather muddled modernized fantasy that was not consistent at all.

The best part of the film was the visual effects.
Costumes and lavish sets are the only reason to torture yourself by viewing Mirror, Mirror, a poorly written revisionist look at the Snow White saga (told from the evil Queen's point of view.)

Lackluster, unimaginative and downright dull, this supposed comedy is a poor reflection on both cast and writers -- and definitely NOT the fairest in the land. 
Mirror, Mirror is the new effort to rework the classic fairy tale, Snow White and the seven dwarves.

The film is great to look at, but suffers from being all over the place when story elements meet and bump into each other causing some confusion with the changed version.

The fantasy/adventure sequences which feature sword fights and a dragon-like monster are uninspired and not the least bit pleasing.

Its romantic conditions are stiff and unconvincing.
