Based on the book series, three orphans have to go live with their horrible Count Olaf played by Jim Carrey.
This movie was a blast to watch. The art direction was awesome. I loved the look of the house, scenery, Count Olaf, the kids, and everything inside the house. Even when it was supposed to be dreary and gloomy, it still popped.
The role of Count Olaf fit Jim Carrey and his very showy acting. It wasn’t overacting here, but fit very much into the character. The kids were awesome. I’m not the biggest fan of kids in movies, but I liked all the kids.
I also really enjoyed the dark humor of the storyline and all the loony adventures. It is some pretty dreary stuff, but was so much fun to watch.
