"The main character in this movie, Walter Sparrow, played by Jim Carrey, becomes obsessed with the number 23. After his wife gives him a copy of a strange book that introduces him to the theory that all things add up to the number 23, Sparrow sees the number everywhere. Watching this film today I, too became convinced that the number 23 is everywhere, specifically regarding how many hours I felt I had been in the theater. The Number 23 is 23 hours long. I am sure of it." - That is what I wrote about The Number 23 last Tuesday, right after I left the theater. Now almost a week later I feel exactly the same.
