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.

Not sure why one of the funniest men in showbiz tries his luck in a thriller (which was not really scary) type mystery (not really a memorable ending either). Its plot, script was not written well and some talents were just put to waste. I guess the facial expressions of Jim Carrey sums up the film as a whole, a complete shock and waste of time. He can do drama which was very effective and realistic in the Truman Show. Hope he reconsiders these type of films/roles before delving into its obscurity.

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

“Sorry dude, we don’t have that.” So says the punk at the concession when I asked him if they had any breakfast cereal. My evening wasn’t going well.

But I was pleasantly surprised that “The Number 23″ was actually halfly good. I know what you’re thinking, halfly isn’t a word. Just wait. There it is. It’s now a word. You’re welcome.

So there’s 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 isn’t any meaning or purpose to this weird phenomenon.

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