Julia Roberts as an Evil Queen? I Think Not 8

Mirror MirrorMirror Mirror opens this Friday, and it’s one of a bunch of fairytale-themed movie and TV projects right now. There’s Snow White and the Huntsman, Grimm and Once Upon a Time, to name a few.

What’s up with all the fairytales, people? Has everyone run out of new ideas, so they’re reverting back to old-fashioned stories? Whatever the reason, I don’t mind. A good tale is a good tale.

Well, let’s hope so anyway. Snow White and the Huntsman looks fabulous, partly because I can totally see Charlize Theron as an evil witch. Julia Roberts? Not so much. I mean, they’re two very different movies. Snow White appears to be a dark, gothic-inspired movie, whereas Mirror Mirror is more of a comedy.

But I’m just not sure Julia Roberts can pull off the evil queen role. I hate to say it, but I still see her in all those romantic comedies like Pretty Woman and My Best Friend’s Wedding. I know. Let it go, Jane.

Check out the trailer and see what you think. Does Julia Roberts work for you as an evil queen? And more importantly, does the movie just look completely dumb?
