The Number 23 Reviews:

I watched this by accident. I was looking for other movie, a comedy about a boy who thinks he's a hero in a novel (which turns out to be STRANGER THAN FICTION). Comedy, Jim Carrey, I thought this had to be it. I was wrong, and boy, am I glad I goofed.Carrey plays Walter Sparrow, a fairly ordinary-seeming man, an animal control officer whose wife Aggie (played by Virginia Madsen) happens to purchase him what seems to be the only copy of a self-published novel, THE NUMBER 23. But as Walter reads the book, the storyline of a homicide detective called Fingerling, he finds the hero reminding him of himself. As he reads of the hero Fingerling's descent into obsession and madness, he becomes increasingly disturbed himself, and goes hunting for the pseudononymous author, determined to search out what it all means. The respond uncovers a dark secret involving a murder committed over a decade ago, and alters the lives of Walter and his family permanently.I won't tell more, it would give away too much, but I found this wonderfully acted, beautifully written, and altogether involving. Carrey excellently plays both Walter Sparrow and Dec. Fingerling (in scenes from the novel shown as Carrey reads it), Madsen shines as loving housewife Aggie and novel hero Fabrizia, and the helping users turn in perfect performances, particularly Lynn Collins as the novel hero Suicide Blond. The photography is frequently dark and threatening, which fits the plot, the sets are marvelous, and the climax is perfect.I hope Carrey does more serious roles. This film proves he's not just a funny rubber face.


9/11 2001, 9+11+2+1= 23, JFK was killed on November 22, 1963 2+2=4 and 1+9+6+3=19 and 19+4= 23, Caesar was stabbed 23 times, and so on so forth.Whether you think it's a coincidence or not it's still cute cool and Joel Schumacher's the Number 23 wouldn't have been half as interesting without his knowledge.The movie follows Walter (Jim Carey) as his life begins to be consumed paranoia as he claims the number 23 is haunting him. He comes to this conclusion whilst reading a book, the Number 23 which he draws parallels with the main character's upbringing and his own childhood. The only trouble being, told main hero a detective Fingerling kills his lovely girlfriend. As everything in the ebook already mirrors Walters past, why shouldn't it mirror his future also? Worried that he'll slay his wife, Walter attempts to track down the creator before it's too late.Though it's simple to throw insults at Schumacher (Batman and Robin anyone?) he is nice at thrillers being at the helm of Falling Down and Smartphone Booth. Here he delivers again. True, the ending may be a tiny drawn out and may not be to everyone's taste, however Carey's performance is once again proof that the rubber faced actor can indeed, well…act. It's just a shame that with each serious performance by Carey, critics scrutinise his performance because it isn't comedy. Have they seen the Truman Show, Eternal Sunshine….people? Carey can act. And Schumacher can direct, the only trouble here is the plot isn't that strong, with the twist maybe feeling a tiny anticlimactic. Still it's an enjoyable movie and may have you looking for the number 23 yourself when you leave the cinema.


There has been a nice deal of critical scorn directed at 'The Number 23', which almost made me rethink my decision to see it, despite finding the idea very enticing, being impressed by the promotional materials, and generally liking Joel Schumacher as a director (yes, Batman and Robin was awful, but he's directing some very nice movies like The Client, Smartphone Booth and The Lost Boys) And after seeing the complete product, I search myself asking why the knives are out for the film. Now, I'm not telling this is a brilliant film, because it isn't. It's rather simple to guess the plot twists, the script does tend to patronise the viewer and the final segment of the movie casually abandons the central premise in favour of a more generic 'mystery' storyline. But I found quite a several things to like about the movie, such as powerful performances from Jim Carrey and Virginia Madsen, very ellegant direction and (for most of the movie)a genuine undercurrent of tension as the happenings unfold. It's not going to be remembered as a highlight on the careers of anyone involved, but if you enjoyed conspiracy theory novels such as The Da Vinci Code or shows like the X-Files, you are more likely to see past the critics and play this film. Final Score 6 (which is 2x3)/10
