The number 23... really ?

earlier number 23 at its best i was idly watching showtime - which sucks so bad now but that's beside the point - and one of the movie channels was running a bit about the movie the number 23 starring jim carrey.


is it just me or does this sound like a really stupid idea ? they showed some bits of the movie and they were all about how numbers in carrey's life always add up to 23 (social security #, birthday etc). i don't know, it just sounds silly to me. surprisingly, it got a good score on imdb. but that doesn't always mean the movie's good - i mean lord of the rings and star wars are up there too, so how accurate can this thing be ?

on a side note - if the number 23 had a sequel, what would it be called ?

* i just realized, the digits in my birth date (day + month + year) add up to 23.. oooooh... spooooooky

Jim Carey is an absurd actor. His only good movie is the Trueman Show

You should watch the trailer. He is given a book about the number 23 and its obsessiveness etc.. then he himself becomes obsessed and paranoid. However, there's a *message* somewhere..

I think it might actually be good :)
