Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events

Rated 4.0 This film starts off with a warning that the movie is extremely unpleasant, and those looking for a happy story might wish to visit another theater. Word on the street is that the film isn’t nearly as unpleasant as the books. Some reviewers have trashed Jim Carrey’s portrayal of Olaf as typical, manic Carrey showboating, but this movie is substantially nasty for a children’s film, and Carrey’s comical clowning makes Olaf all the more evil, creepy and fun.
