Global — "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" have gotten a makeover in the newly released film Mirror Mirror. Starring veteran actress Julia Roberts (Pretty Woman) and relative newcomer Lily Collins (Abduction), this comedic version of the dark fairytale is a pleasing retelling of the Brothers Grimm classic. I have always been a fan of Julia Roberts and loved her films, but too often she plays the same character. However, that is not the case in "Mirror Mirror." If she was looking for a movie to reignite her career, I believe she has done it with this film. It was charming and funny; when I wasn't cooing over the cliche romantic scenes, I was laughing hysterically along with the rest of the audience.
Check out these five clips that sum up why I think this film is a must see.
