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

Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events [DVD] 
This is an older film but regardless of that, all of my children loved it! They were huge fans of the series as well so the characters and story line were so familiar. It’s definitely a fun and exciting film to watch with your kids also!
You gotta pay attention or else you won't like it.
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.
This review is from Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events [Blu-ray] 
I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Owned for more than 2 years when reviewed.
One of Jim Carey's best ... one of my favorites. Whimsical, magical, funny, joy-filled adventure. Wonderful soundtrack, too.
Production values are perfection. Bring it back out once a year and it still remains fresh.
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.
Great hand vac for pet hair removal from your upho
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.
