About the Movie
Dear Viewer, If you enjoy movies filled with singing rabbits, exploding spaceships, or cheerleaders, you are looking at the wrong film entirely. This movie is extremely alarming, an expression which here means "a thrilling misadventure involving three ingenious orphans and a villainous actor named Count Olaf (Jim Carrey) who wants their enormous fortune." It includes a suspicious fire, delicious pasta, Jim Carrey, poorly behaved leeches, an incredibly deadly viper, Meryl Streep, and the voice of an impostor named Jude Law. The only things that could make such a spectacle more upsetting are special features, such as commentary by me or outtakes involving nervous laughter. I am bound to continue my research into the lives of the Baudelaire orphans, but you are free to seek lighter fare, like blue cheese fondue. With all due respect, Lemony Snicket

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: As it ticks by, laboriously, it leaves you feeling that you should be enjoying it more than you are.
Fresh: Carrey finds his perfect role in Count Olaf.
Fresh: The visuals are dark and ominous without getting totally terrifying -- the characters feel real, but their environment is off-kilter enough to remind you that this world is one of imagination.
Fresh: Episodic but entertaining.
