The pseudo around the significance of the number 23 is extensive and offers a wealth of material and arguments to the supporters of such doomsday conspiracy theories ... or just to fans of numerology. However, the film does not touch these mystical aspects and limits on scattered reports related trivia to remember the old and young people learn. Chooses to move forward as a psychological thriller ... read more

Animal control officer Walter Sparrow (Jim Carrey) is obsessed by a novel, The Number 23, which his girlfriend (Virginia Madsen) offers him for his birthday. Soon Walter believes the book was written about him, and his fascination increases.

The story was all right, although in the end, it was somewhat predictable.

While this was a highly recommended movie by many peo... read more

previous two reviews nailed it right on the money. the style of the film was awesome, definitely some parts were almost Sin City-esque, and Jim Carrey was great in a dramatic role, which few comics seem to be able to pull off, but I clued into the 'twist' way too early, about half way thru. I even thought to myself, I bet you ******* is the writer, thinking there is no way it would be so obvious... read more

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.

Rotten on Rotten Tomatoes (210 movies items)

"8% Consensus: Jim Carrey has been sharp in a number of non comedic roles, but this lurid, overheated and self serious potboiler is not one of them. The Number 23 is clumsy, unengaging and often confusing."

Jim Carrey: Man Of Many Faces (16 movies items)

"To top off the list we have something different than your typical Jim movie fare, this movie is NOT a slapstick comedy or a family movie - it's a horror/thriller. The Number 23 has Jim play a dogcatcher named Walter who discovers this book and becomes obsessed over it and over the titular number, and this is one of the best dramatic parts Jim has ever gotten. In this one, don't expect him to be humorous as in this....he's as TVTropes puts it: Darker and Edgier. He also plays the charac"

One of the special movie from Jim Carrey's filmogr

“Well, the number 23 is a special to me. It's my birth date and I consider myself, it's a lucky number. This is the number which always pops-out when I wanted to pick a number. During watching team sports I always watch-out for who's wearing a jersey with this number. So the number 23 is everything to me and watched this movie 7 years ago (today, 2014) with high expectations which stood up to my belief. Here I am after a re-watch.

You know mystery movie are not meant to watch again and again, because you won't get that real twist when you re-watch. That is a big drawback in this particular genre. All we need is to give a good concentration while we watch for the first time and must not miss a single dialogues. But in my case I saw it a long ago, now I didn't remember much of the ” read more
