Fantasy: Snow White must reclaim her family's kingdom from an evil stepmother with the help of seven dwarfs and a dashing prince.
Snow White (LILY COLLINS) has essentially been a prisoner in her own kingdom since she was a little girl and her widowed king father went missing shortly after marrying the Evil Queen (JULIA ROBERTS). For years, she has been cared for only by loyal servant Margaret (MARE WINNINGHAM) and the scared staff of the castle. The Queen, envious of Snow White's beauty and disgusted by her goodness, keeps the 18-year-old girl confined in her bedroom away from the starving, suffering masses while she rules with complete indifference.

But The Queen has spent too freely and lived carelessly too long. When the dashing Prince Alcott (ARMIE HAMMER) comes for a visit and tells her stories of the great wealth and prosperity his land enjoys, she immediately schemes to marry him. One problem. He has already gotten a look at Snow White and has fallen in love with her.

When The Queen orders Snow White taken from the castle and killed, her loyal subject Brighton (NATHAN LANE) can't bring himself to do it. He frees the girl and tells her to run and never stop running. Snow White, though, falls in with seven thieving dwarfs (JORDAN PRENTICE, MARK POVINELLI, JOE GNOFFO, DANNY WOODBURN, SEBASTIAN SARACENO, MARTIN KLEBBA, and RONALD LEE CLARK) and together they hatch a plan to take back her kingdom and restore the land.

Yes, it is definitely being pitched to children on its fairy-tale elements and prince and princess trappings.
For some fantasy action and mild, rude humor.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
