Un filme divertido y hermosamente fotografiado, pero un poco "o un mucho" sobreactuado y finalmente, un tanto simplón.

"Lemony Snicket" falls short of the Potter movies. Gone missing is the magic.

Aqui está um projeto que praticamente implorava para ser comandado por Tim Burton e estrelado por Johnny Depp.

Though Brad Silberling can't rein in Jim Carrey's annoying mugging, he's redeemed by his film's strong, tenderly handled themes, brilliant look and literary-minded smarts.

...stars Jim Carrey as Jim Carrey, Jim Carrey and Jim Carrey. Silbering pastes together a series of unfortunate scenes, all with Carrey within mugging distance.

If the movie were as wildly creative as it looks, it would be brilliant, instead of merely OK.

December 27, 2004
Dickens with a sense of humor, featuring people and situations both horrible and goofy enough to be fun rather than fear-inducing.
December 27, 2004
Sometimes Carrey's not-so-funny improvisations are his own undoing, as when he sits in a high-backed chair and feigns electrocution. But more often the children...steal the show.
