...starts with a promising idea, allows it devolve into chaos, and, finally, grinds it into the trite and mundane. (Blu-ray Edition)

OK, so I was one of 23 people who actually liked The Number 23 when it came out on the big screen. Sue me for $23. And then double it, because although I will admit it's a bit flaccid upon second view, I still dug this DVD enough to recommend it to...

As expected, the DVD edition (July 07) contains several commentaries (by mathematicians, director Schumacher, star Jim Carrey) about the myth, reality, and significance of numbers in our lives; Carrey says he named his company JC23 before making the film!

Lacks the sort of streamlined clarity and crisp, clever reversals that keep the best such genre efforts entertainingly dancing just beyond the grasp of full deciphering.
