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 !

This could have been a much better film, had Count Olaf been cast by someone NOT known for comedy and known more for their cruelty. That was a devastating blow to an otherwise perfect film. I wish they would make movies for the rest of the books.

This copy of the DVD freezes in a few places and needs to be replaced.

A disappointing and misguided adaptation of a terrific book series. Jim Carrey is woefully miscast, as he often is. The recent Netflx series is a much better version.

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.
