What's it about

Just in time for the 2004 holiday season, Jim Carrey, Meryl Streep, Jude Law, and three unlucky children star in a movie based on the best-selling books by Lemony Snicket.

After Violet (Emily Browning), Klaus (Liam Aiken), and Sunny (Kara Hoffman & Shelby Hoffman) Baudelaire's parents perish in a terrible fire, they are placed in the care of Count Olaf (Jim Carrey), an actor, evil genius, and master of disguise. At every tur, Count Olaf hatches another outrageous plot to steal the orphans' vast fortune, and he's not going to let anybody stand in his way - not Uncle Monty (Billy Connolly), not Aunt Josephine (Meryl Streep), and certainly not the children themselves! The resulting series of unfortunate events is likely to leave viewers of all ages in utter hysterios.
