Another movie daughter and I went to see was Mirror Mirror.
I LOVED it. I laughed. It did some wonderful things with any number of old cliche’s
I adored their take on Snow White, broke her out of the mold and gave her a “you go girl” spunk.
Julia Roberts was amazing as the queen. Casting her was a mark of genius.
The Dwarves, incredibly perfect concept for shaking up that old sterotype.
There were some pretty great costumes as well. But both my daughter and I left saying, what was up with that blue dress and the bright orange bow that Snow wore in the closing scene. ???
Yeah, that thing on her back…like wings? It is a bow.
And hey, what’s not to like about a naked prince. Well, not totally naked…but caught in his bloomers a couple of times.
My only, ehhh was that the prince was a bit emasculated in this role…I’m riding the fence a little on big picture impressions. He had some scenes that helped bolster his alpha image…but… well it’s a coin toss. I know it’s hard to have everything. Maybe there could have been better casting there.
I can’t say enough good about this movie. If you only go see one movie this month, make it Mirror Mirror.
