    A Series of Unfortunate Events highlights the bizarre lore of Lemony Snicket's encapsulating vision by utilizing a plethora of stars including Meryl Streep and ever-iconic, multi-layered Jim Carrey. The charming adolescent/toddler trio and perilous, yet quirky plot is just enough satisfaction and entertainment to wonder what could have been for this potentially-developing franchise. 3.75/5

    This was a ok movie. If you like the books you will also think it is ok. The show is better. I feel like it is rushed. There is 2 count olaf costumes both of them there for only 15 minutes. So not rewatchable. Overall it was enjoyable but boring if that makes sense.

    Visually fun, and acted just as enjoyably the plot moves way too fast to care (since their cramming three books into one) about anyone aside from the kids and the villain, but they do enough to hold this film up.

    I feel it didn't fully capture the spirit of the books as it could've. It was just ok

    altho rather shallow in execution, it is a very faithful adaptation (with the exception of jim carrey as count olaf, of course)

    Jim Carrey is funny but it's a pretty average movie

    an enjoyable gothic comedy that adapts source material well, but misses the mark with anti-climactic ending to acts and poor ending altogether.

    Never got to read the book series, but Jim Carrey makes this a delightful watch.
