Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events

Auds who just can't get enough of Jim Carrey's inexhaustible mugging will hit the motherlode with the two-disc special edition of "Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events." The rubber-faced thesp gets an extraordinary workout as bad-actor-turned-orphan-killer in the set's various behind-the-scenes extras.

Auds who just can’t get enough of Jim Carrey’s inexhaustible mugging will hit the motherlode with the two-disc special edition of “Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events.” The rubber-faced thesp gets an extraordinary workout as bad-actor-turned-orphan-killer in the set’s various behind-the-scenes extras.

The second disc provides several hours of featurettes covering all the technical bases — pic’s sound, production design, visual effects, score and costumes are analyzed in painstaking detail. Helmer Brad Silberling offers some insights in his solo audio commentary track. However, a patience-trying second commentary featuring Silberling and the “real” Lemony Snicket (author Daniel Handler), who repeatedly reveals (mock) surprise and disgust with the film, is best ignored. It’s a joke that turns unfunny after about three minutes, but it continues throughout the film.
