Storyline Heading
The Baudelaire orphans are placed in the care of Count Olaf, a man who is either a demented evil genius, an egomaniacal actor, Jim Carrey, or all three. Aided by a troupe of theatrical misfits, he hatches one outrageous plot after another to get his hands on the children's vast inheritance.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - This is a fairly dark fantasy aimed toward families with older children. Although much of the darker events take place off screen, the general tone may be too intense for really young children.

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events manages to remain witty throughout. Coupled with its fast pace and occasional cliffhangers, that makes it a candidate for an easy recommendation, regardless of whether you have previous experience with the books or not.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Above Average But there is a problem, and the problem is, everything seems to be an act. Nothing really seems to be at stake...I liked the film, but I'll tell you what. I think this one is a tune-up for the series, a trial run in which they figure out what works and what needs to be tweaked.

USA Today Full Review
Above Average Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events is a visually arresting and entertaining romp, but it lacks some of the sardonic humor of the popular children's books on which the movie is based.
