    Synopsis


    Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events
    The best-selling series of subversive children's books from author Lemony Snicket (aka Daniel Handler) come to the screen in this black comedy for the whole family (and how often do you get to see one of those?). The Baudelaire siblings -- gadget freak Violet (Emily Browning), bookworm Klaus (Liam Aiken), and baby Sunny (Kara Hoffman and Shelby Hoffman) -- were living a fairy-tale existence with their parents until they died in a fire that destroyed the family home. With few close relatives and a large fortune the children won't inherit until they reach adulthood, the Baudelaire children are left in the care of the peculiar Count Olaf (Jim Carrey), an out-of-work actor who would love nothing more than to get his hands on the kids' money. It doesn't take long for the children to figure out that Count Olaf is up to no good, and they try to steer clear of his various murderous schemes with the help of wildly paranoid Aunt Josephine (Meryl Streep) and snake-fancying Uncle Monty (Billy Connolly). Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events also features Catherine O'Hara, Timothy Spall, Cedric the Entertainer, and Luis Guzman; Jude Law narrates in the guise of author Snicket. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      Life is full of many surprises, adventures, heartaches and some people who bring positive actions into your life. And other people who take great pride in trying to bring great hardships into your life. Money is usually the cause or lack of it. Try to live as best as you can. Don't go looking for trouble. Because trouble will find you. There is plenty of good and bad in this world. The law is your friend so listen to your heart. I really enjoyed this movie.

      I could not wait to put this to the test. Charges in 5 hours and works like a charm on my velvet, silk, and cotton upholstery pillows, chairs, and sofas. Would highly recommend. I have allergies to pet dander, so for me this is a Godsend. With my Oreck Vacuum, three air cleaners, and this Bissell pet hair hand vac I now have a cat who is healthy and happy along with his owner. Did several hours of research to pick this product and am totally happy.

      My rating is a 4 star because I have seen the movie with people that can't listen and ask to many questions, in which they ruin the movie. There is a bit of narrating but its so that it can loop the movie between scenes. The movie is amusing, a bit slow, and interesting how Count Olaf (Jim Carrey) seems to be everywhere trying to become legal guardians for 3 orphans.

      Through every step of the movie almost all of the grown-ups are oblivious to what's happening to these kids, but by sticking together and a little Ingenuity, they overcome every obstacle placed in front of them by the horrible Count Olaf, played by the scenery chewing Jim Carrey.

      My kids have been reading the books and watching the series - and have really been enjoying both. I saw this in Best Buy and decided to get it. Jim Carrey is a spectacular Count Olaf! The movie is a hit in our house.

      This was a fun movie with an interesting story and characters. Jim Carrey for the most part puts on a good performance. I felt that most of the acting was good but a few times it was pretty lame. Great movie and I would recommend this! (Also I think this came from a book so if you prefer it that way go for it!)

      Jim Carrey was too much

      This movie was a clear case of the idea of "let's hire someone famous so people will watch the movie". Unfortunately Jim Carrey overacted and destroyed the movie. It was a shame because there was a lot of other positive aspects---other actors did well, there was some interesting filming done, etc.
