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.
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.
La película juega con los mismos ingredientes que otros directores han hecho populares en las últimas dos décadas, y lo hace bastante bien. Película de intriga y suspense con un gran giro final, dilemas sobre la identidad y la pérdida de la misma, (Fight Club, Memento,...). Está bien ejecutada y carece de las ínfulas o la pretendida relevancia de aquellos dos ejemplos o la filmografía de Shyamalan, por ejemplo. Bien porque el misterio del 23 no es lo esencial, bien porque no quiere engañar, no finge ser más de lo que es. No quiere parecer más inteligente, ni más trascendente, ni más importante que las dos horas de entretenimiento que nos sirve a los espectadores. Entiendo que al final pueda…
Bad, like bad x 23 = this movie... As you can see by my review, this film made me dumber.
really really I watched it once felt like I watched it 23 times..
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Argh I do not know. I feel so guilty for not really being into this movie since all of my friends have been recommending it to me for so long. Okay, the story itself is not bad, it is not typical and stuff, but I was bored for the most part of the movie. Yes, the number 23 is some mysterious scary shit, but why does it happen? What is the mystery behind it? Why him? It was never specified, and I only got a bit interested in the end of the movie. But then again, the " It was me, I just lost my memory " part is becoming boring, unless the story is really good and well done. This was not the case. It had a nice story, but not too developed.
Entre los cinco peores títulos de Jim Carrey. Lo único que pudiera admirarse es, precisamente, su riesgo de haberse atrevido con un thriller.
P.D: fueron 23 palabras.
Was really disappointed in this story, although Jim Carrey did really well in it.

These are films that I've seen over the years that I've either liked or loved, but A LOT of people…
