Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events

The Baudelaire siblings are likable and clever. Violet (Emily Browning), age 14, is one of the greatest young inventors the world has ever known. Her brother Klaus (Liam Aiken), age 12, is a reader and researcher of extraordinary knowledge and skill. And their baby sister Sunny has sharper teeth than most beavers.

Unfortunately, none of this can alter the fact that after their parents perish in a terrible fire, the Baudelaires are placed in the care of Count Olaf (Jim Carrey), a man who is either a demented evil genius or an egomaniacal actor. Aided by a troupe of theatrical misfits, he hatches one outrageous plot after another to get his hands on the orphans' vast inheritance.
