Episodic but entertaining.

It's all a bit superficial, but highly entertaining, wickedly funny, and alluring enough to make you want to start reading the books.

A sick joke of a film that realizes the best children's entertainment doesn't hide from the bleaker side of life, but plunges into the void and respects kids enough to assume they can handle it.

Heinrichs helps take your mind off the slack direction and the letdown of a climax, which ought to make the kiddies hurl Gummi Bears at the screen.
December 20, 2004
A lavishly mounted blockbuster that has little personality of its own except on a purely visual level.

This film is endlessly dark and gloomy for a kids story. But somehow, it works.

Book's fans will enjoy, but too creepy for some.

Whilst the direction and script seem off, the rest of the production work is excellent.

Between Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and Lemony Snicket 2004 is a banner year for dark and fun kid's films.
