Lemony Snicket’s a Series of Unfortunate Events Trailer/Tv Spot. News to me….

Okay, apparently, this is a Tv Spot, but folks, I’ll be honest, I hadn’t even heard of this: A Series of Unfortunate Events, Due December of this year. – Although I gotta hand it to Mr. Carrey, sure he’s eccentric, and maybe it’s the outfit, but this actually looks delightfully fun – and although 1 minute is by no means a lot to judge an actor’s character over, Jim seems to have a subtle disturbance in this character and [actor mode:] his energy really seemes to be held much higher. [end of mode]. Jim really does a good job from what I see. If anyone knows anything about this sucker, leave a comment, cause apparently, I know nothing.

(I don’t even know what Lemony Snicket *IS*.. or WHO it is, I guess I should say.)
Oh look at that! 2 minutes of research and apparently, it’s a book-related thing.. people still read?

Yes, that picture IS Jim Carrey

  1. OMG i love these books! i read all 11 of them so far and can’t wait to read the next! i am so excited! btw, the movie was great but they left out alot of parts(the books are better and WAY more detailed :)

  2. ALRIGHT!!!!!!!! I can’t wait to see all the movies and read the new books!when are you supposed to read the unofficial autobiography?after all the 13 books or after the 11th and before the 12th?

  3. Hi Everyone. Lemony Snicket’s book are a younger person’s series. I am 14 and I love them. The new movie is coming out in December 2005. It will be on the books; THE MISERABLE MILL, THE AUSTERE ACADEMY and the THE ERASTZ ELEVATOR.

    The 12th book is coming out October 18th 2005. It will cost $11.95 in US dollars.

    I hope you enjoy this new movie

  4. I readed 4 books of a Series of Unfortunate Events and they are so good that you don’t want to put them down untell you are done. when I m done one of the Series of unfortunate Event books I reread it agian if I have time.

  5. i’ve read all da books!!! they are excellent, i loved them all!! the movie did nothing for the books, didn’t have any mystery to it and da story was different, but was entertaining anyway!!

    the characters were really good, but i didnt expect sunny to look like that!!

  6. i think that the movie was entertaining and jim carey was funny, but it wasn’t nearly as good as the books. They made it seem happier than it really is!!

    also, it should be way more mysterious!!!!

  7. the characters didnt look the way I imagine them but hey they look much better then the way I did imagine them so the character part went out good, n everything else was really good so I give the movie 10 stars and 2 thumbs up

  8. This script does not give me any information that I need to know about the movie. I think that you all should do a better job at typing the scripts

  9. They’ve got the characters all wrong! Klaus is suposed to shorter than violet, not taller. also, this is not a bad thing, but sunny is wayyy to cute to bite anyone, i think she has more than 4 teeth anyway!

  10. I just saw the movie I have got to tell you it was missing alot of information. I’m now reading the 5th (since I am only ten and started reading it about 2 weeks befor right now) and I am really dissapointed about the movie so do not waste your money and I dont mean to be jugemental but aunt Josephine gets flirty.

  11. I think the movie will be great. Jim Carry is a great actor, but think, what if Christopher Loyd played the part? He does have the better looks for it. Just saying.

  12. The Series of unfotunate are one of my favorists books if you havent read it yet you should read it before the movie comes out.The first book is very excting and very intertaining.YOU BETTER READ IT OR ELSE.

  13. Is Count Olaf a real person??I think the movie looks really good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Is Lemony Snickit your real name?How old is Violet??I am just like Klaus just i don’t have black hair i have dark brown hair OH and i have gold highlights.Were does all this happin????I reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaly want to be in the movie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I think i would be good as Klaus.–Is the Reptile Room and the Grim Grotto a real place?Are all of the submerines real like the Queequeg and the Carmelita.What country were they born in??????

  14. i love the series of unfortunate events the books are soo good and it would be great to see the movie but if i get another D on my report card i cant see it and im grounded for a month (stinks huh)well hope every goes out to see the movie

    (oh ya report cards come out dec. 3, 2004)

  15. I read the series of unfortunate events. i am on book 7. i love the stories they may be sad and depressing but i like books that are not always happy. i really enjoy this series. I am so excited about the movie that i am not going to school dec.17th instead I am going to watch the movie. I love the SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS!


  16. My son’s reading the Series – and so am I! They’re the best! Snicket’s style of writing is very good. He introduces new words & concepts and then says, “which here means…” and then he explains it, often humourously. I particularly like the part where you read a page, turn to the next page and read the same words again (because he is explaining deja-vu!) We can’t wait for Book 11 to land on our doormat from Amazon! Hope the film does the books justice. Trailer looks good.

  17. I LOVE the books, I’ve read em all and I’ve read the Unauthorized Autobiography 4 times! The new book comes out on Sep 21, and I can’t wait. (for more info go to Lemony Snickey.com in the books section of the site”

    The movies look a little too cooky if you ask me, They look sort of like kiddie movies, but as you said, you can’t tell a lot in 1 min

  18. I JUST LOOOOVE Jim Carrey(more on him in next paragraph) and the books!! The books are about three orphans ( Violet, Klaus, and Sunny )who’s parents left behind an enormous pile of riches. Well in book one (The Bad Beginning)the oprpans get adopted by Count Olaf (CARREY),but all he cares about is getting their fortune. In each book the orpans get away from Olaf, get new guardians, but he comes back in disguise (they know but their new guardians don’t). THEY ARE PRETTY SERIOUS BOOKS BUT HAVE SOME FUNNY TWISTS.

    Jim Carrey is my Idol. He has been in a lot of Comedies such as Liar, Liar, The Truman Show, Dumb and Dumber, The Mask, and Ace Ventura. But He has been in Drmas too: The Majestic, and Man on the Moon. He is really funny and he is from Canada where he started acting in Comedy clubs as a teen. Also he was on the show IN Living Color for a few seasons.

    Thats all I know Folks, but I really, really, really, recomend reading the children’s books before seeing the show(s).

  19. These books are so different from the every day childrens book that they suck you right in. If you havent read the books do it before you see the movie!

  20. Well, to quote the robust Igon Spengler in 1984’s smash hit: “Ghostbusters”:

    “Print is dead.”

    That excuse works for me.
    have fun… later!

  21. oh my god, you people havent read these?!?!
    HA!! they are so awesome. they are satires (dark comedies) they are so wonderful. they are childrens books but i am 15 and i am so unbelievably obsessed with them. i cant believe you hadnt heard of them!!!

  22. as an unofficial member of the VFD, i suggest reading the books in order to obtain the information needed to know of the schism as much as Mr. Snicket is willing to lead us on with….and quite hopefully Jude Law will portray him in all his loveliness…and of course who else could be as arrogant and egotistical to play Count Olaf aka Al Funcoot

  23. I think that the Series Of Unfortunate Events are Plot-Twisting,Humorous,And gut wrenching at times but the Baudelaires always make the best of things and Lemony Snicket puts a dry wit spin on the situation at hand. But Count Olaf is twisted and weird and i imagined some one like Jim Carrey and his odd way of doing things as being him.

  24. I love the books! I’m 14, and even though they’re short, the plots are awesome, and they make you really feel something. Jim Carrey will be cool. The poor Baudelaires suffer so much! I don’t think they’re dark; I guess it depends on how you look at them. The movie should be good!

  25. I’ve read all the Lemony Snicket Series of Unfortunate events books (well at least all the ones that are out) they are really good and I reccomend them to anyone their very entertaining! Before seeing this movie I recommend that you read the first 3 books (at least) because that’s what this movie covers. There will be 13 books in all but as of now there are only 10.

  26. I love every single book in the Series of Unfortunate Events. I got my first book in the sixth grade (as I am only thirteen years of age)and I literally couldn’t pull my nose away. Each book has its own twist to it. You can never expect what’s happening next because it is so bizaar. You might also want to check out Lemony Snicket’s Unauthorized Autobiography to understand the story a little bit better. Also, fading from my original subject, each time I pictured Count Olaf as a real person, I pictured Jim Carrey. His potrail (if that’s how you spell it) of Count Olaf should be magnificent.

  27. Yup. It’s a “kid’s” series, all right. I’m 21, though, and enjoying them. They *are* a helluva lot more Gothic than most children’s books. The author doesn’t condescend to his readers, either, and he’s not afraid of introducing complex concepts in weird ways. Hope the movie doesn’t suck!

  28. Yeah, kids books. Darn entertaining kids books, in the same funny/grotesque vein as Neil Gaiman’s “Coraline.”

  29. I read the first of the series a little over a year ago, probably the darkest ‘kids’ book I’ve ever read, but a good story nonetheless. Should make for an interesting film. His Dark Materials is high on my ‘to read’ list

  30. Has anybody here read the His Dark Materials books? That’s another set that I’ve been meaning to check out … film version of those is coming down the pipe now, too …

  31. It’s a big series of kids books … haven’t started reading them yet but they’re supposed to be quite good …
