I’m here to relate the tale of a very unfortunate movie, in which three smart orphans are forced to endure the most nefarious, villainous Count Olaf as he schemes to secure his claim to their inheritance.
Not having a read any of the books, it took me a little while to get into the flow of the film. The kids have read all 11, and they were laughing out loud throughout the movie. It was a much darker movie than I would have expected for a kids film, however the kids and Michelle insist it was actually quite a bit more lighthearted than the books. At dinner after the movie, the kids reviewed all the parts that were different than the books.
The resident Snicket aficionados give the movie a very enthusiastic two thumbs up.
