It may not be an entirely faithful adaptation of the first three books, but I love it purely as a film. The costume/production design makes it a joy to watch, plus Jim Carrey's portrayal of the outrageously "stand-offish" villain, Count Olaf, showcases his character acting ability wonderfully. But it was Thomas Newman's perfectly fitting score that got me hooked. He is terrific, and well overdue for an Oscar. A very critically underrated film in my opinion.
A chick-flick disguised as a serious drama. Sappy yet enjoyable. The two main leads are hot and have acting ability, it's just that The Notebook hasn't given them much to show off about, except for an undeniably great kiss.
