The Number 23
First it takes hold of your mind...then it takes hold of your life.
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.
Cliché After Cliché: The Movie.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
"There is no such thing as destiny only different choices". This movie is a suspenseful rollercoaster as Walter Sparrow (Jim Carrey) reads the mystery murder book Number 23 and then soon begins to experience deja vu as if it were his own story. Jim Carrey does a masterful job of playing this serious, yet Carrey like role of being a curious husband/father and also the humorous Carrey that I have learned to love on screen. The film develops the plot through the book and the narration of Walter Sparrow throughout as his obsession with the book lead him on a wild chase to discover the truth. The ending statement to the film is, "Be sure that your sin shall find…
How the movie wants me to react: OH MYYY GAAAWD
How I actually reacted: Oh, fuck off.
Jim Carrey is known for doing such kind of movies. You would want to watch this movie till the end, but won't find it really really awesome. Decent story, Jim Carrey at his best, watch it if you are his fan. Movie revolves around how the number 23 is linked to all the parts of his life. The twist is interesting when he finds out who the real villain is. Watch this movie for the end.
The Noir stuff (desaturated color schemes; femmes fatales) works better than it should; Schumacher's stylistic flourishes are as shallow as ever, but engaging nonetheless; and the ensemble cast invests sincerity and seriousness in a goofy script that hardly deserves it. The overt sentiment that puts the film in a far less interesting place in the third act, coupled with an overwritten/underachieving twist-upon-twist denouement, dooms "The Number 23" to mediocrity.
Could've been really interesting, but it gets too ridiculous
Numbers one through twenty-two were pretty shitty too.
Maravilhoso, trama bem amarrada, filme sério de um dos maiores comediantes da atualidade.
Meh. Jim Carry plays a less colorful version of The Ridder. If you consider "23" one word, then this review has 23 words.
"but I don't care what they say
i'm in love with you
they try to pull me away
