Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events

2004

Production Company
Paramount
Distributor

In parallel to Harry Potter, the first three (!) Lemony Snicket books are brought brilliantly to life. Well cast and oodles of fun. Recommended.

-The Sloth

Way to kill a franchise before it's even born - let an overrated ham steal the focus. Note they never made another one, even though there were thirteen books. You don't see Carrey or Silberling doing much these days, either. I wonder why?
