I LOVE this series my family and I started to watch it and we loved it we all gather up in one room and watched together each night. We watched two episodes every night and never missed them. It was funny, cute, laughable, the music was great too but the movie was real something and was not what I was expecting.....

There needs to be a sequel with Jim Carrey because he portrays Olaf perfectly.

I was laughing my head of at Jim Carry! The dinosaur scene was great, both the one in the movie and the deleted scenes! I do wish that the whole book series could have been put into the movie, but it was hilarious anyway.

An enthralling story with a hilarious Jim Carrey. The cinematography is also fantastic.

Great Movie may be 4.5 star but does not tell the whole 11 books only the first 5.Very good besides that.

Jim carrey is amazingly amazing. Although his charachter doesn't seem to be of one from the book. He still nailed it. Funny and unfortunate. Must watch !

Count Olaf: The kitchen. I know what you're thinking: this place could use a little TLC. I trust you've all had your tetnus shots, Smallpox, Typhoid, Polio, Malaria.

The three wealthy Baudelaire orphans - Violet, Klaus and Sunny - are left alone when their parents die in an unexplainable fire that engulfs their home. They are sent to their supposedly "distant relative", who they find to be a frightening and disgusting man. And after a few days it becomes clear just what Count Olaf has in mind for the Baudelaire's huge fortune.
