Rating Explanation: for some fantasy action and mild rude humor
Jimmy's Buzz Guide Review: Although it's a bit uneven and corny, it's still energetic and light-hearted with just the right balance of the wild, the wicked and the happily-ever-after.

On her 18th birthday the beautiful Snow White (Lily
Collins) starts getting
ideas about venturing out into the world. She has just met the
dashing Prince Alcott (Armie Hammer) in the forest, where he and his
steward, Charles Renbock (Robert Emms), have been set upon by a band of seven robbers
who wear stilts to disguise their short statures.
The Queen (Julia Roberts) is just as smitten
with Prince Alcott’s good looks as Snow White is, but she’s also smitten with his vast riches and large
kingdom, which she would very much like acquire. Jealous of Snow White’s
beauty and influence over the Prince, the Queen orders her buffoonish
servant Brighton (Nathan Lane) to get rid of her.
