Mirror Mirror

By PENELOPE BASS
Another in a tedious line of recent fairytale adaptations, Mirror Mirror is a picture-book retelling of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves with impressive costumes and scenery and little else. The Evil Queen, played by a bitchy, almost-likable Julia Roberts, casts her stepdaughter out into the dark woods so that she can remain the fairest cougar in the kingdom. Snow White, a vapid Lily Collins, pouts her way into the home of seven thieving dwarves, rebranded with nicknames like Butcher and Napoleon. They teach her how to fight (via montage) and win back her father’s kingdom. Naturally there is also a handsome prince at stake—Armie Hammer portraying a smile with hair—and Snow White’s final reward is marrying this man who earlier in the film spanks her with a sword. By the time the credits roll (accompanied by an inexplicable Bollywood-style music video), you’ll wish someone had offered you some poisoned fruit.
