Stanleys Stamp Of Approval: Olaf= Ecxellent, Violet= Beautiful, Writing=Stupendous
This was a great movie. I have read a recent review that this was not
like the books, and its true. I did read the books first, and by that
time, the movie came out, and I loved it. But the writing of the movie
was stupendous. If you read the books, and then watched the movie,
you'll see how much they are different from each other. But I liked how
the first three books were mixed up, and it was great. Now, Count Olaf/
Jim Carry, was an excellent character for this movie. I could not see
any other actor as good as Jim in this movie. He was full of sarcasm
and funny lines. Violet and Klaus were good characters for this movie.
Violet was beautiful, and Klaus was just like the Klaus in the book.
Sunny was okay. When she said, "oookay" when the three kids were with
Aunt Josephine, made me laugh, but the rest, eh, okay. The music, was
wonderful. Other movies usually use the same music on a movie, but this
was a series of music that gave you the feeling that you would actually
hear it if you were there. Overall: outstanding movie. -$tanley.

This is a bad, bad, film. I kept hoping it would get better, and it
didn't. Here are the reasons:
1. Bad acting. The kids can't act. Period. They just can't. 2. Jim
Carey. I like Jim Carey in most things he does. However, he has done a
few films where he merely plays an obnoxious, annoying person (think
Ace Ventura or the Grinch). If that annoys you at all about any of the
roles he's ever played, you will not like him here. This is Carey at
his most obnoxious. 3. Point? This film just goes on and on without any
point. Characters are introduced, characters disappear. The people wear
Victorian era clothing, but then live in present day New York? but not
New York where people drive cars from the 50's and modern day
convenience stores exist? Some people are British, some people are
American, while Connolly is Scottish? It was like some kind of bad drug
trip. Take 4 good movies: Lost Highway + Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas
+ Harry Potter + The Mask and mix them all up and you have this movie.
The first two because things just happen that don't make sense, Harry
Potter because of the costumes and scenery and a few Brits, and The
Mask because Jim Carey is hopping all over the place being obnoxious.
It's hard to believe that so many good reviews have been written about
this film. It seems to me that most of the people have read the books.
I didn't know that it was based on a series of books until after I'd
seen the film, so I don't have this bias. The only other reason I can
imagine that anyone had anything good to say about this film was the
fact that the costumes and some scenes are pretty. But it isn't as
though they set a mood, like in the movie Underworld, but rather the
costumes and scenes all clash with one another. For this reason, I
wouldn't even say the costuming or scenes were well done.
All in all, I have nothing good to say about this film. I felt cheated
as I sat in the cinema watching it. Please don't give these thieves any
