Took the kids and they did not seem very interested in this movie, even after reading the books.
Dark. Terrifying for young children. Boring and senseless for adults.
It was darkly funny and wickedly clever, call it a guilty pleasure.
This film could've been directed by Tim Burton, but he didn't. Someone else did. but whatever the case, "Lemony Snicket's a Series of Unfortunate Events," is not only funny, but is beautiful to look at. Jim Carrey is funny in a wicked sense. I describe the film as weird but wonderful.
Boring. It was sold as three rather unusual kids and thier challenge to avoid a greedy disinterested uncle who only wanted the money from the death of thier parents. The second part was accurate, but the kids were so totaly boring and uninteresting that the movie fell completly flat.
They barely lifted a finger to protect themselves, and it could have all ended in the first half-hour if they would have tried a bit harder to get the attention of an adult.
There was nothing clever about the movie it was completly predictable from the start, but I give it a wait for rental only because of the dramatic sets and locations.
Uneven. Very disappointing, considering the quality of the cast.
