Tarsem Singh’s Mirror Mirror is a decadent feast for film lovers and young children. The mixture of bright colours; wacky situations, lovable characters and stunning costumes, designed by Eiko Ishioka, all combine for a unique, and definitely surprising, cinema experience. Leave your preconceived judgements at the door and let yourself be pleasantly amazed.
After dinner, Julia and Hugh go for a walk and Hugh demonstrates to Julia that he has no idea how to climb a fence. This is apparently an excellent seduction technique. Ronan Keating sings “You say it best when you say nothing at all” but I guess he must be behind a tree or something, because I never saw him.
Also Richard talks on a ridiculously large mobile phone, presumably telling everyone that he’s a “top guy”. Meanwhile, George just plays miniature billiards (which is probably some sort of masturbation metaphor).
It’s actually depressing to realise that with close to a dozen storylines here not one contains anything approaching a fresh insight into romance or relationships – but realistically, if you’re planning to see this you almost certainly don’t care.
Quite clearly, the team at WATCH OUT FOR love their Movies, some would say moreso than our future children (unless one of those said “future children” ends up having something to do with a new Police Academy movie) – so when a Viral Video like the amazing “100 Cheesiest Movie Quotes of All Time” comes along… we are, in no uncertain terms, pretty chuffed.
You really can’t go wrong with a cast this huge. Even if the movie is even mildly enjoyable, the pure bankability of its roster of stars is undeniable.
