The Number 23 (2007, Joel Schumaker)

"Walter Sparrow becomes obsessed with a novel that he believes was written about him. As his obsession increases, more and more similarities seem to arise."

I don't know what is wrong with this movie. It really makes you wonder if anyone actually thought about what they were filming while making this.

Although Carrey is always entertaining in the film and the direction is somewhat entertaining the film is just ridiculous because of the script. I don't blame the execution, or the actors, or the director. I blame the script.

Characters pop in out of nowhere only when they are needed and the leaps this film takes with logic is just impressive. This is really just a ridiculous film and pretty bad but it is at least an entertaining trainwreck of a film and i hope that Carrey manages to bounce back from it.
