Mirror, Mirror was kinda adorably cheesy. This isn’t what you’d call a good movie – the dialogue was horrendous in places, for one, and the plot doesn’t bear close examination. It was pretty, though, and delivered with a sweet earnestness that, for me at least, made up for its shortcomings. I enjoyed it, even when I was laughing at it rather than with it.
Also, there’s a Bollywood-esque song and dance number in the end credits. And the dwarves were pretty damn cool. And there was a line about focus-group-tested plot elements that almost killed me.
In sum, don’t expect much, but if you’re in the mood for light entertainment, you could do worse.
