When a massive fire kills their parents, three children are delivered to the custody of cousin and stage actor Count Olaf, who is secretly plotting to steal their parents' vast fortune.
According to the letter the children receive at the end of the film, the Baudelaire Mansion is at 23 Prospero Place, Boston, Massachusetts.

When Count Olaf is driving the kids back from the custody hearing and the shot cuts from Olaf to the kids when Violet says, "Pure evil," Sunny is leaning against Violet, looking as if she is about to fall asleep.

Most of the end credits are composed of cardboard cut outs and Olaf chasing the children.
