As far as psychological thrillers go, The Number 23 is a little too much 'psycho' and not enough 'logical'.

Absurd, dark, and a miscast Jim Carrey. Yuck.

As Walter's/Fingerling's paranoia grows, the viewer is irritatingly yanked back and forth between the real and imagined settings, and left to decide which one is more ridiculous.

There is something to this 23 stuff, and a film about apophenia (obsession with random connections) would be fascinating. But no.

Jim Carrey tries his best, but the film never gets psychologically creepy, never makes the viewer question what is fiction, what is reality, and most importantly what the number 23 is all about.

So much cascading hatred for the audience runs through the flickering images of this film!

... the film astoundingly reaches new levels of unintentional self-parody with every turn.

THE NUMBER 23 starts off promisingly but quickly devolves into an uneven mess.

For all its gimmicky numerology, The Number 23 just doesn't add up.

What could have been an intriguing psychological drama turns into a mediocre crime thriller.

The Number 23 is Schumacher's first stab at a scary movie, the end result just doesn't quite add up.

This thriller's biggest mistake is its belief that it's as clever and original as it is visually stylish.

Joel Schumacher does a chaotic job of turning this thriller into indigestible jelly %u2013 it wobbles formless for a while, finally settling into the shape of a duck

Sem conseguir convencer o espectador do básico (a onipresença do número 23), o roteiro chega a apelar para absurdos para tentar provar sua lógica tortuosa.

While it's often fun watching Jim Carrey handle more serious material the same cannot always be said of director Joel Schumacher.
