Walter Sparrow is an animal control officer that becomes obsessed with a mysterious book that seems to be based on his own life. As soon as he opens the book, he notices strange parallels between what he reads and what he's experienced. But now he's worried that a fictional murder might materialize.
Utter bollocks...... hold on, utter bollocks, UB, U=21, B=2, 21+2=23... wierd!
I would watch Batman & Robin twice before I watched this again.
I stare at my computer screen, absentmindedly sucking on a watermelon Ring Pop. I brush my finger across the trackpad and the movie's runtime appears on screen. I look at how much I've already watched. 23:23.
Later, I brush the trackpad again. 1:23:23.
My jaw drops open.
It's almost over.
A senseless, pointless, unpersuasive and incoherent film that tries to be something that clearly is not. Thank you for another undeniable masterpiece, Joel Schumacher.

Yeah, that is it.
Corey Stoll is in this. Corey Stoll was also in Midnight in Paris, for which Woody Allen received his 23rd Oscar nomination...
Guys, this is getting 2spooky4me.
El guion de "The Number 23" es igual de consistente que un dildo hecho de gelatina.
Not a bad ending but you know it's those movies that tried to be deep and didn't get you in tune with it. You watch it, hoping, waiting....and.....blank....
The first two acts of The Number 23 are bad, but none of it compares to the final 25 minutes. Jim Carrey gives a fine performance, and there are certainly moments of intrigue, but the twist is one of the worst ones I've seen in a movie. It is one of those twists that make no sense, but than it takes 25 minutes just to explain it, and for the most part it just makes it more convoluted. Yeah, I excited to see this one, but what more should I expect from Joel Schumacher.
I actually thought The Number 23 was pretty good, despite all reviewer said. It's not a bad movie. The deal is, he's crazy, and that's what the movie is really about.
The 23 thing is just the justification that Carey uses as part of his psychosis. The whole point is to show how someone can find patterns anywhere if he looks hard enough and how someone with an extreme obsession compulsion can fall into that trap. Essentially a mentally ill person notices an association one day and starts obsessing about it to the extent that they see it everywhere like a massive cosmic conspiracy theory.
The 23rd word thing wasn't for him, it was a confession/suicide note for someone else…
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
I saw this movie years ago and at the time I remember really enjoying it. After watching it, I did a bunch of research on the actual 23 enigma that the movie is based on. I even wrote a paper on it for school. Most people don’t talk about this movie, but anytime I hear the rare reference someone makes, it’s always negative. So I’ve been meaning to watch it again to see which is right. The critics or my memory. After finishing it, the truth is in a place in between. The movie is certainly not good but I don’t think it’s total garbage. The whole 23 enigma is interesting, but the way they use it is just ridiculous.…
Jim proving that besides being the best comedy actor alive, he can do very well a serious job.
A better director could have turned The Number 23 into something in the vein of Seven or Memento. The premise is good and so are a lot of the story elements, but Joel Schumacher just messed it all up.
The movie goes back and fourth with what is taking place in a book the main character is reading and the rest of the movie, and the scenes that take place in the book are hilarious looking. The lighting and color grading looks like it's suppose to be a parody of David Fincher/Christopher Nolan's style, and the fact that it's Jim Carrey doesn't help (he is fine for most of the movie, though. He just does not make a good detective).…
I am a massive fan of Jim Carey so he surprised me with this role. He is sterling.
"oooh what's going on"
"ooh... that's it? that's disappointing.."
an extra star for jim carey doing drama cos that was a big deal to me back then.
