I enjoyed the movie but think the books are, of course, better.  Jim Carey
did a marvelous job as Olaf.  That being said, the movie added to the plot
and not having read all the books I was confused by the twists.  Vis a vis
the movie, it seems the "relatives" are really a band of detectives
(amateur? professional?) keeping tabs on various arson cases.  They each
have a spyglass.  This has not been the case in the first three books
where the only spyglass mentioned is in the sailboat on Lake Lachrymose.
At the end of the third book Count Olaf mentions arson when Mr. Poe is
listing the many crimes the police may be interested in talking to Olaf
about, but this is the only confirmed clue that Olaf may be behind the
Baudelaire fire.  It piqued my curiousity and I plan to read them all.
The movie seems ripe for a sequel.  Lisa
