If you enjoy movies filled with singing rabbits, exploding spaceships, or cheerleaders, then this movie probably is not for you. This movie is extremely alarming, an expression which here means "a thrilling misadventure involving three ingenious orphans and a villainous actor name s Count Olaf (Jim Carrey) who wants their enormous fortune." It includes a suspicious fire, delicious pasta, Jim Carrey, poorly behaved leeches, Billy Connolly, an incredibly deadly viper, Meryl Streep, and the voice of an imposter named Jude Law.

Quirky like Tim Burton. - Lemony Snicket's a Series of Unfortunate Events review by NC

Spoiler Alert

Saw other write ups, but watched on projector, with some kids, probably helped, but i really enjoyed the film. Reading the books would help as well of course.

Quite often the kids films appear to be better made than the adults! As have 4 grand children, tend to see them all, and the lack of effing and blinding, and chain saws etc, is quite a relief.

Dustin had two lines in this film, for some reason..........alas prob not get any now the mighty American witch hunt is on. Kevin prob never be seen again? Wonder if he get some more stage work over here? Doubtful, as the media be all geared up...............

An unfortunate film. - Lemony Snicket's a Series of Unfortunate Events review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

This is one of the most disappointing films that I have seen in a long while. Although there were some good supporting performers and some stunning sets, the script is weak, you never get a chance to know or care for the children, and Jim Carrey as 'Count Olaf' is just not intimidating as a villain. Overall, the whole film seemed to be lacking in substance, depth, and character development.
