Good God, I actually liked this screwball of a mystery thriller.

More entertaining than most of the movies nominated for an Oscar this year.

I don't care what anybody else says. The acting was good and the script was complelling. So there!

Carrey owns this movie. He's in virtually every scene, and there's no taking one's eyes from him.

Jim Carrey makes for an unlikely but completely effective lead choice. He brings a nice touch of comic irony to his otherwise serious role, impressively handling a wide range of emotions as an ordinary Joe caught in an extraordinary web.

Newcomer Fernley Phillips' screenplay eventually binds itself into too tight a knot. But it also has some admirable ambitions about family, responsibility, memory.

Carrey skillfully leads us on a twisted trek with hair-raising jolts.

While The Number 23 is probably not destined for masterpiece status, it does what it sets out to do: entertain, and mess with your mind.

Number 23 is a modest, well-executed film. Is it scary? Not exactly. But if you're willing to settle for mildly creepy, then you're in luck.

There's enough style, intrigue and plot twistiness in this thriller to keep us watching

By the end, you'll want to stick around, if only to crack the Jim Carrey code: Is he a real actor after all, or is the rabid urgency with which he keeps trying to be the most real thing about him?

I can say I was never bored with The Number I guess that's a good sign that it works as a piece of entertainment if nothing else.

Genuinely intriguing in places and romps along at a satisfying pace for a conspiracy thriller.

Things don't really add up in The Number 23, but you can count on some queasy chills and trashy thrills all the same.

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.
