If you are looking for a pleasant night out, you would probably be better off attending some other event. This rare public appearance by the elusive best-selling author Lemony Snicket will include shocking details from his anxiously awaited new work, The Grim Grotto, Book the Eleventh in A Series of Unfortunate Events. Even worse, books will be offered for sale. Fortunately, if tickets sell out quickly, you won't be able to attend.
I saw an extended preview of the movie which will be released in December. It has an interesting look and is obviously a showcase for actor Jim Carrey. Hopefully the offbeat and quirky nature of the books will be preserved. The recent Cat in the Hat, a showcase for actor Mike Myers, was unbearable. Peter Jackson cannot direct everything I guess.
