Its too bad that 23 sucked so bad. I was hopping to see Jim Kerry in a good serious role.

Hey I found a good stop motion film you should do a review on.

And we all know Jim Carrey has the chops (i.e., Eternal Sunshine, Truman Show)  It really was a case of bad idea meets mediocre screenplay.  Oh well, I still think Carrey is an amazing entertainer.

Thanks for the link.  I’m going to watch the video right now!

I didnt even watch the whole movie and I was bored with it. I really thought it would have been a good movie especially with Jim Carey being in it. But it really did suck and it sure couldnt keep my attention. I thought it was gonna be a scary movie and I thought this is stupid.

I personally thought the movie was so boring. The liked the movie idea and I started thinking of many things that made 23.
Funny thing is the movie ended at 12:11.. 12 + 11 = 23 :D
I dunno if that was coincidence or just timed perfectly.
I was actually looking forward to seeing Jim in a serious take rather than a comedian.

i think he does better as a comedian instead of a serious take. maybe they meant for that to add up to 23

Good God, I actually liked this screwball of a mystery thriller.The Number 23 is just a sordid exercise for a comedy actor to stretch his dramatic muscle.

my favorite performance of his is still eternal sunshine of the spotless mind.  it was of course a comedy, but i think there was some heavy acting in there for drama, so i wouldn’t just categorize him as just a comedian based on this great movie.  23 was kind of ... ok.
