A couple of months ago my mom-in-law and I took the girls to see Mirror Mirror starring Julia Roberts and Lily Collins. A fun re-make of the traditional Snow White story that makes Snow White a bit less clueless and more courageous. She saves the prince if you don’t mind me giving a spoiler.
All four girls loved it and so did us adults. One of the cool things in the movie is the song “I believe in Love” sung by Collins (yes, her dad is Phil Collins). It is catchy and makes you want to dance, here is a free download of the song (I don’t know how long it will be offered btw). Some fun online extras can be found at the Mirror Mirror site. There is a dressing room where the kids can design dresses, a Mad-Lib type word game and you can download some coloring pictures!
Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment just sent me a DVD/Digital Download/Blu-Ray Mirror Mirror to have for the house. The kids are thrilled as it is just in time for the long trip to Colorado (leaving soon). I have never done digital download before, but once I realized I needed to have iTunes open, it was very easy to upload onto my account. Now the kids have the movie on their iPod touches and can watch it again whenever they want. I think the digital downloading option is going to catch on in this house.
If you haven’t yet seen the movie, or saw the movie and want to see it again the movie was released a few days ago on June 26th. The flick is rated PG and has the Dove.org seal of approval for families.
(Disclosure: I got a free copy as I mentioned above in exchange for my honest opinon of the movie.)
