Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events

2004

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?
