Mirror Mirror

Tonight we had a date to see the movie "Mirror Mirror." It's a remake of the classic Snow White story this time told from the point of view of the wicked stepmother.

Julie Roberts plays the Wicked Stepmother Queen with great delight. I can imagine the fun she had vamping the part. Lily Collins plays the innocent and much maligned princess Snow White. The handsome Prince Alcott is played by Armie Hammer. There are 7 "giant" dwarfs named Grimm, Butcher, Wolf, Napoleon, Grub, Half Pint, and Chuckles. To round out the cast is Sean Bean who plays the old King.

The movie is good old-fashioned fun. The adults in the audience were laughing as much as the kids. The costumes are over the top, as are the pranks. If you want to get away from it all (which does not sound like a bad idea considering the economy) this is a good place to go. We both liked it a lot!
