Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events 2004


Based on the bestselling book series by Daniel Handler, the "Snicket" saga revolves around a pint-sized trio of orphans named Sunny, Klaus and Violet who find themselves fobbed off on a series of odd people, including Lemony Snicket, who narrates each of what has grown to a series of eight books since Handler debuted the first title in 1999. The recurring bad guy is a distant family relative named Count Olaf, who initially takes in the kids but clearly is trying to separate them from a family inheritance. (read more)

This adaptation of the children's books has a lot of really good aspects, but it is not the Tim Burton film it is trying to be.

The children are sweet and quite good actors, but the story gets so caught up in Jim Carrey playing a bunch of roles and Meryl Streep playing in the minor leagues.

The art direction is very good...

Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events Movie Review by Sean (7/3/2006)

I have to say, I'm not a big Jim Carey fan, but I think that he did justice to Count Olaf. They did an AWESOME job with the casting. Even though you'd think that a baby's role isn't that big, the munchkin that played Sunny had great facial expressions that, if you read the books, you could SEE Sunny making.
Another small...

Everyone keeps talking about this movie and playing it up, like its the best thing to come out in a long time, with great reviews all around, so.....

Will I love it like everyone else, or will it not live up to the hype and be anti-climactic?????

Well, I hate to say this, but it was...

when i went to see this movie, i expected jim carey to do his regular funny, sometimes annoying role, except this time as a bad guy. however, although i was right with that, the movie got me entertained and i managed to overlook the scene stealing count olaf. the movie is totally about the kids and they make it fun and...
