A man becomes obsessed by the number 23 because he is a weirdo by reading a novel that seems to parellel his own life. This movie was awful and dull and really not scary.

Carrey shines in his debut dramatic performance. Plot twists, strong acting, and a surprise ending make this film a must see.

A bland mystery, with lots of weird turns and out of place flashbacks, that adds up to a completely disappointing ending.

"The Number 23" by Yojimbo

An ordinary guy receives a book that seems to strangely echo his own life, leading to his descent into obsession and paranoia. The Number 23 is yet another of those twist-based psychological thrillers of the type upon which M. Night Shyamalan made his name. Fans of Stephen king will find a lot of his familiar ingredients in the plot as every twist and turn lumbers onto screen directly on cue while Joel Schumacher exercises his usual visual overkill and all round lack of subtlety. To be fair, the story maintained my interest as along as I was entertaining myself by guessing the "big twist", but The Number 23 certainly would not stand up to repeated viewing. Not the worst example of the genre and fans of Stephen King may find some amusement in its rather adolescent Twilight Zone s...

Overdoing it...again

This movie should have stopped when Walter Sparrow ripped the wallpaper off and found all of the writing on the wall. There wasn't actually a need to continue; it was a perfect stopping point of intrigue. People would have had something to talk about and make up their own conclusions of what happened afterward, while still having been given plenty of material to have relative closure.
You know how he was, and what was going on at that point...the mystery was over. Everything after that was merely cleaning up the end in a nice and tidy "happy ending", which was horribly unneeded.

This could have been great with an ending likened to Twilight Zone stories. However...Schumacher stays true to his overdoing, and...well...over does it again.

The Number 23 Review

ďSorry dude, we donít have that.Ē So says the punk at the concession when I asked him if they had any breakfast cereal. My evening wasnít going well.

But I was pleasantly surprised that ďThe Number 23″ was actually halfly good. I know what youíre thinking, halfly isnít a word. Just wait. There it is. Itís now a word. Youíre welcome.

So thereís something called the 23 Enigma which refers to the idea that everything is related to the number 23: from Michael Jordan to the numerological weirdness of 9/11 (9+11+2+0+0+1=23) to the first and last sentence of this review. However, as the movie suggests, there isnít any meaning or purpose to this weird phenomenon.

At first, I thought the movie was gonna suck because of the director (destroyer of Tim Burtonís Batman movies). And it s...
