* out of ****      If you read my review for "The Lost Boys", then you'll remember that at the end of my review, I said, "Thanks Joel Schumacher. But I still hate you." Why did I say this? Well, take a good look at "The Number 23", which is directed by Schumacher, and you'll see why. There is indeed such thing as the 23 Enigma, but that doesn't make the film any better. Rather than substance (or even style), "The Number 23" …

Obsession is a dark emotion that can destroy a person's soul....
Obsession is a disease, a dark fleeting sensation that can drive one person to do things that they normally would not do, driving the individual to the brink of insanity that can destroy the person’s life and turn them into a monster.

Pros: Imaginative story line that play on the human predisposition for superstition.      Cons: Convoluted at times; poor script; less than able direction.     The Bottom Line: In the end The Number 23 is a mildly entertaining movie that lacked a cohesive script and able direction.      Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie''s plot. We humans have a predilection for superstition; lets fact it religion is build …

Maybe it was to be expected that Schumacher, who hasn't really made a very satisfying film since the mid 90s, would gravitate to material like this that would at least allow him some time to exercise his 'weird' directorial chops. And really, there is some potential in this as well; Carrey's dog-catcher protagonist is given a book on his birthday (which is on 2/3) called the Number 23, which deals with a sax-playing detective with a dark past who gets involved with an even darker, more sadistic …
