Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events is a Tim Burtonesque fable with a not so funny anymore Jim Carrey, but that’s the downside of the movie, the rest is brilliant, the kids, the sets, Meryl Streep. I am very fond of this type of movie, with all the crazy scenarios and exaggerations, and with a narrator. I didn’t even know the name of the movie before I walked in the movie theatre and didn’t even notice Jude Law was in the movie before I got home�
Anyway, it was a very nice surprise, and it is definitely going to have a place in my DVD collection, even if the critics slam it.
