Mirror Mirror (2012) - GOOD MOVIE

  This movie cleverly balances a fairly faithful retelling of the story with a simultaneous gently subversive deconstruction, and I must praise the script right from the start: it is both clever and funny. Julia Roberts is hilarious and evil as the Queen,  Lily Collins is an absolute delight, sweet and vulnerable, yet also with a degree of feistiness. The dwarfs and the Prince are all very funny.
  This film is charming and delightful, and has a number of surprises, some of which are a treat (the poisoned apple, and the musical ending, to name but two). Don't judge this one by it's trailer.
