Profile of Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events

The mood of Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events is stylized, offbeat, and atmospheric. The plot centers around an orphan, a death in the family, and a rescue. It features dark humor and irreverent humor. It is an adventure, family, and fantasy movie. Stylistically, it features an all-star cast and includes a voice over. In approach, it is fantastical. It is known for being a blockbuster and an Oscar winner. It is especially suggested for pre-teens and a family outing.

Newsweek
Pretty charming. Audiences may like it more than critics, but everyone should agree it's one of the most wickedly stylish movies of the year.

Chicago Tribune
Exceptionally clever, hilariously gloomy and bitingly subversive.

As a children's film, I think Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events is too dark, maybe even scary at some points. From an adult's point of view, the film looked like a Tim Burton movie, except it wasn't good. The visuals were great, but...

Somehow, they managed to make this uninteresting, or maybe even worse than uninteresting: bad. The kids are stockroom fluff, Carrey is uneven (is he playing the Grinch or the Mask or Danny Glover?), the script is tossed every which way so as to make...
