Everybody's a critic - 'Lemony Snicket'
Four stars (out of four)
The events in "Lemony Snicket's: A Series of Unfortunate Events" are rather, well ... unfortunate, yet woven with wry humor. This film follows the lives of the three Baudelaire children, Violet, Klaus, and Sunny, who have recently been orphaned.
They are taken to live with their closest relative, the evil Count Olaf. Jim Carrey is wonderful as the over-the-top, eccentric villain. Humor is graciously mixed in amongst the unfortunate events, provided by Sunny, who speaks only in subtitles, and Count Olaf's Carrey-esque exaggerations.
The ongoing humor thread between Olaf and Sunny about the infant being a primate is one of the funnier moments in the movie.
Easily one of the most enjoyable films I have seen in a while.
