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.

Schumacher is as much to blame for this mess as Carrey is. Over and over again, he mistakes looming shadows and manic outbursts for tension, and his ponderous, ham-fisted directorial style creates more questions than it answers.

I think that "The Number 23" is supposed to have a twist at the end.But a twist is supposed to be something that you can't see coming, something that takes you by surprise. In this sometimes entertaining but mostly befuddling film, the only confounding el

If you circle every 23rd word in this review, you'll wind up with a message that makes no sense. Neither does paying to see this movie.

The Number 23 lacks cohesion. (Director) Joel Schumacher flails around like a drowning man, and takes his picture under with him.

It just adds up to sheer ineptitude.

If long-winded Wikipedia writers or "Lost" bloggers wrote a thriller, it would turn out something like this. It starts as a dark variant on "Stranger Than Fiction" and ends with a melodramatic flood of embarrassing exposition.

A supposedly tangled tale that's ultimately as easy to unravel as two nylon stockings.

... just another movie designed to cash in on the gullibility of ticket buyers.
