The Number 23 (2007)
Critic 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 mostly confusing.

Critic Reviews for The Number 23
Pretty much every important date in history...can be teased to fit the pattern. What can't be hammered out of this fixation, apparently, is a coherent movie.
Watching Carrey babble gibberish about the sinister nature of 23 in scene after hyperventilating scene isn't any more fun or enlightening than listening to street-corner lunatics discourse on similar topics.
The Number 23 is an accidental comedy starring a deadly serious Jim Carrey.
Julius Caesar was stabbed 23 times. Charles Manson was born Nov. 12 (11 + 12 = 23). The Mayans believed the world would end on Dec. 23, 2012 (20 + 1 + 2 = 23). My brother stole my pogo stick when I was 23 and broke it into 23 pieces.
Audience Reviews for The Number 23
An eerie concept with an incoherent and selective script. The Number 23 is a flat, discombobulated thriller with Jim Carrey at his lowest. The film's hysteria with the number and twist (which was the only plus) is more-so annoying as it is frightening. 1/5
What was meant was a dark, scary, paronoid wink at the audience becomes weak, predictable and hokey by the credits. Only for those days at the bottom of your vid rentals.
