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.
A senseless, pointless, unpersuasive and incoherent film that tries to be something that clearly is not. Thank you for another undeniable masterpiece, Joel Schumacher.
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.

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.
I like the surrounding numbers but not twenty-three, so fuck this movie. The Fingerling scenes were laughable.
this movie is really stupid
"Every time I read a book it's like the author stole a part of me that I thought only I knew."
I really like this kind of thing. Patterns are fascinating to me and I often see them in everyday life. Not quite to the extent of the characters in this film, but I often see these recognizable not-quite-coincidences. I happen to look at a clock at an oddly specific time of day. I really enjoy that type of thing and find it extremely interesting.
This was one of the early movies I got from Netflix. You know, back when the only way you could get Netflix movies was a DVD through the mail. I loved it and it lingered…
The only thing that this movie did was make me obsess with the number 23..
"Of course time is just a counting system... numbers with meanings attached to them."
I didn't hate The Number 23, but I feel like it was a bit of a rip off/carbon copy of The Secret Window, with a few minor details changed. Like when the end happened I just thought...oh really and that was kind of a let down.
Jim Carrey was pretty good, I like seeing him do movies that aren't comedy, even though I think he is quite hilarious. Non-comedy just shows a whole different side of him that is great too though and I really enjoy it! I like changing peoples opinion on him too, who don't normally like him because they don't find him funny, so that's cool.
Don't really have anything else to say. Maybe I will reevaluate it sometime in the future.
'El numero 23' es una tomadura de pelo al espectador. Sin contenido ni sentido, con un protagonista nada creíble y una mala dirección.
Absurda y mal hecha. El protagonista desvela sumas disparatadas de cifras hasta llegar al número 23 y pretende hacernos creer que es súper interesante y revelador. La película esta construida en torno a un giro absurdo que como mucho puede provocar risas.
La evolución del protagonista Sparrow, se desarrolla entorno a una obsesión sin sentido con un libro en el que se narra la historia de un personaje con el que se siente identificado. Estas escenas pretenden acercarse de forma casi insultantes al genero negro. La dirección de Joel Schumacher es mediocre y el trabajo de Jim Carrey intenta seguir a flote en una barco que se hunde sin remedio. Dedicarle más de 23 minutos a esta película es un error.
Great film, really intriguing. I love it's look at the conspiracies behind the number 23.
Ein cooler Mystery Thriller mit Tiefe und Detail, aber auch nicht zu schwer oder kompliziert als das man nicht mitkommt.
