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.
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.
I gave it a 2.5. Between 2 and 3
“What you have read so far is not the truth”
The plot of Joel Schumacher’s The Number 23 is really shattered – because on the one hand, you’d want to see it through to the end to see where this idea about the mystical number 23 will lead. But on the other hand – this idea about 23 being a haunted number appearing as soon as you make a super-forced and far-fetched connection between things, is pretty darn silly.
So, the film builds an entire mystery on this, it uses thin characters and a weak atmosphere to hide the fact that the only thing this film has going for is a number. It’s just too thin to be engaging, but…
I didn't enjoy it. Weak story, not enough to engage me.
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.
