The Truth Will Find You.
Walter sparrow becomes obsessed with a novel he believes was written about him. As his obsession increases, more and more similarities seem to arise.

"...looks terrific...always keeps moving...never feels headlong or rushed...a very good movie...  Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"The film's assaultive shock editing holds you...like "The Da Vinci Code" with insanity and violence...  Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly

Editor's Note
In Joel Schumacher's psychological thriller THE NUMBER 23, Jim Carrey takes on another dramatic role. Carrey's character is similar to his roles in THE TRUMAN SHOW and ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND: he portrays an average man thrust into quite extraordinary situations after a series of strange events cause him to question everything he's ever taken for granted. On his birthday, Walter Sparrow is given a mysterious and tattered book called THE NUMBER 23 by his loving wife, Agatha (Virginia Madsen). As Walter reads the book, he quickly notices its alarming similarities to his own life. Rather than stop reading, he continues, unknowingly inviting the book to take over his life. The deeper Walter gets into the plot, the more he sees himself in its protagonist, Fingerling, whom we see through highly stylized sequences in which Carrey appears as the seedy detective character. Madsen is also present in these scenes, cast as Fingerling's pain-loving girlfriend Fabrizia. As Fingerling and Fabrizia's love affair inches towards its fiery conclusion, we learn the role the number 23 has played in their story and will play in Walter's future if he cannot keep his growing obsession with it at bay. While Carrey and Madsen are adept at playing a man gone mad and a headstrong wife in crisis, they are most fascinating as their dark counterparts, and Schumacher succeeds in creating a truly intoxicating noirish underworld of sex and death through those sequences.

Expert Review The Number 23 - DVD Review
By: David Thomas filmcritic.com DVD Reviews
Published on: 7/6/2007 4:15 PM
There are at least 23 ways in which The Number 23 sucks. The most important revolves around its inability to distinguish creepiness from clich. It fails to realize that there's not nearly enough weed on this planet for its supposedly deep observations to blow your mind. As a result, moments meant to instill fear either evoke boredom or, more often, the giggles....read the full review
Expert Review The Number 23 - DVD Review
By: Daniel Solomon Cinema Blend DVD Reviews
Published on: 7/25/2007 11:15 PM
The twist-ending movie (which by now is its own genre) is in many ways like a furtive sex act. Sure the buildup can be fun, and even offer some nice thrills of its own, but there can be nothing but frustration if the accumulated pressure isn't released in a wholly satisfying way. When a twist sucks and is totally unearned, not only do you want a refund, but you also want back your emotional investment: "Who gives a s*** if she was the killer's daughter' I was here for two hours!" ...read the full review

Professional Reviews

New York Times
"Mr. Schumacher has some fun with special effects, taking us inside the gloomy neo-noir world of the book itself." 02/23/2007 p.E8

Entertainment Weekly
"[Carrey] throws himself into blood-bucket acting with a commitment that's scary enough to hold you." -- Grade: B- 03/02/2007 47

Variety 7 of 10
Gimmicky numerology plus Jim Carrey minus narrative coherence equals "The Number 23," a visually and psychologically murky thriller that, given its hero's paranoid obsession with the titular number, plays like a very grungy episode of "Sesame Street." Noirish fantasy sequences and red herrings galore fail to enliven this straight-faced but silly exercise from helmer Joel Schumacher, while the prospect of Carrey in downbeat thriller mode promises to intrigue as many potential audiences as it turns off...As he proved most recently in "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" (which plumbed the depths of his subconscious much more inventively), Carrey has gifts far beyond the range of dumb comedy; here, however, he's simply miscast in a role that would have benefited from a lesser-known character thesp. - Justin Chang
