was a little bit strange but it is good for the grand kids they loved it
Amazing movie. Different from the books, but still good! :)
A likable, but somewhat irritating film. The gothic imagery is quite nice, but the plot holes and over the top acting by Jim Carrey really hurt it. A nice flick to watch, but certainly nothing I'd ever recommend buying.
not so good did not enjoy this movie.
Loved it ...slightly gothic - whimsical, fast moving, quirky - wonderful backdrops, great acting and quite different.
Excellent - I love seeing Jim Carrey in this sort of role, it's just made for him.
Whimsical, colourful and fun movie. A bit too scary for young kids but great scenes and very enjoyable.
Brilliant, the kids and I couldn't take our eyes off it!
Jim Carey can play any role well. He has a way of making you believe that he is evil and would do anything for money, even kill for it.
the kids love this one, a very quirky and funny movie
Very good movie kids watched it over and over, Jim Carey is perfect for this character make sure you watch the outtakes
Really enjoyed the cast of this one. My kids loved it.
it was Fantastic I loved it.
I really wanted to love this movie but unfortunately there is just not enough there to love.
Jim Carey provides some good laughs. The set designs are beautiful and somewhat "Burton-esque" The children actors are solid and likeable.
There is just a lack of cohesive compelling story.
Essentially comprised of a handful of very distinct chapters. The movie suffers from these individual mini-stories lacking tension and drama and no real compelling overall story arc to tie it all together and hold the viewers interest. This is a shame as there is lot of potential and fertile ground to be explored here.
I had forgotten how much I enjoyed this movie. Love the costumes and props. Jim Carrey is excellent.
Good fun. Interesting sets and visuals.
Not bad, but it misses a lot of the fun and spirit of the books. I think that combining the first 3 books into the one movie contributed to this, but the cast is fantastic and it's worth watching for their performances alone.
Adults be careful ordering this one, fine kids movie ( not under 8 years I suggest bit scary ) that has some appeal for adults. Different /clever film, great cinamatography, wonderful use of imagination & dark humour BUT most adults will be disappointed especially with the poor ending. I went by the high ratings which was a mistake for my taste.
This is quite a quirky movie. It seems to be targeted at young teenagers I'd say, but we (young at heart adults) quite enjoyed it.
Its kind of like "Penelope Pitstop" meets "Rocky Horror Show" in some ways.
There are quite a few good well known actors in it. Meryl Streep does a great job with her role as the paranoid ex-adventurer.
Movie wraps up with a fairly simplistic resolution typical of some kids movies or cartoons.
For younger children, this movie may cause nightmares. Be warned.
Not a bad movie - wouldn't recommend it for younger children though as a bit much in some places.
that's waste of time when watch this movie
an all round entertaining movie
Good for kids but not what I expected.
Couldnt rate it because couldnt watch it
Not as good as i had expected.
The special effects are really good - a bit dark but most enjoyable.
Very clever and funny. Jim Carrey is very good as the bad guy, and the kids are brilliant heroes and heroines.
It was an unfortunate event me wasting my time watching this rubbish, very disappointing with such a good cast, a real yawn fest.
This brilliantly acted movie was enjoyable to watch and follow the well directed flick. Not having read the reviews I was amazed to find Jim Carrey's name in the credits and went back into the add-ons to view his excellent performance as the Count, just brilliant, and the other actors did a great job as well.Regards.
What a great story, and Jim Carey is fantastic in this role, it really suits him. A great message at the end of the film for children & adults alike.
It really is more suitable for children, at least those familiar with the books. With an unsatisfying story it seems to rely on visual effect.
A little dark in places and you need to watch the special features in order to find out what happened to all the characters but well worth a watch even if you are not a Jim Carey fan!
Good kids flick, Jim Carey fans will love his work in this movie!
Fun movie for young and old!
Quite a dark movie for a kids movie.
A thoroughly enjoyable movie. Very quirky throughout, it certainly showcased the talents of Jim Carey. Overall, one of the better feel-good movies I've watched.
I thought this movie was going to be much better! It was confusing and the only good thing about it was the girl Violet!
interesting tale. Jim Carrey at his creepyest....
90 Minutes of my life that I will never get back... Just rubbish
Classic Jim Carrey movie. If you don't like him you wont like it, good acting by the children, our son loved it, why though I dont know.
Thoroughly enjoyed it. Great to have a family movie that does not have a sickly sweet ending!
Listen to the audio commentary by Lemony Snicket and the director. It's bizarre and funny.
I read some mixed reviews before renting this, but having just watched it I
logged straight back on to say "rubbish" to the nay-sayers. This is a great yarn,
full of imagination, great scenery to help the story along, and strong
performances from every single actor. People normally love or hate Jim Carrey,
but to those who find him offensive, you really won't mind him as the bad guy.
Billy Connolly plays a good minor role, but the kids are possibly the best of the lot
(and that's saying something). Thoroughly recommended for kids 8 years and
up, and there's plenty for parents to enjoy too.
Well scripted and very humorous. Not at all miserable.
