    Eh.

    I listen to Coast To Coast from time to time and this old woman was on.
    http://www.numberslady.com/
    ^^She knows all these supposed "meanings" behind numbers (apparently if your "life path number" is "1" you like to "be in control").
    And the film makers actually asked HER for some advice while making the movie, obviously asking her about what 23 meant and all that shit.

    It's another one of these paranormal-turned-Hollywood-flick types, like when they made "White Noise" about the already-happening phenomenon EVPs.

    I can't get over Carrey's constant smirk to really take him seriously. Tom Hanks used to have that, too... but he can work it out, sometimes.

    Jim Carrey is the shit.. There aren't too many of his roles I didn't enjoy

    Did you like the Truman Show, Eternal Sunshine... He can act too, give him his credit!!!

    Yeah.... i was gonna say... I didn't really like Eternal Sunshine, but he did nothing wrong as an actor in it. As well as a few other of his movies.

    He built a career on over-acting and by being extremely dramatic in one way or another. So getting that out of his system has got to be a challenge. Especially when you consider he failed at comedy until he began acting insane.

    I Kept seeing commercial and wondering "is that Jim Carrey"? They definitely aint promoting it like "The Number 23 STARRING Jim Carrey". Kind of surprising.

    It wouldn't be the same without the amazing score, that's what it wouldn't be the same without.

    Yeah I had the same reaction, Oz.

    And Carey can play serious roles very well.

    I liked Eternal Sunshine, The Truman Show, and The Majestic.

    They did all involve comedy, but it wasn't difficult for me to take him serious when the time came.

    He did Dumb & Dumber. He's the best Lloyd Christmas I know...in fact he's the only I know...

    Anyways, the guy can act either way. I am somewhat intrigued by this new film...

    Thank you. I've noticed it in the commercial too.


    PS, Jim Carey was funny until about, puberty. Now 99% of the time, he's just annoying and makes me want to punch him in the face. I did kind of like Bruce Almighty though, as an overall good movie.

    Keanu Reeves, Slyvester Stallone, Martin Lawrence gets FIFTY fucking million a flick, Chris Rock......I can go on.

    Purse don't have much to do with how far up a person is on the class system.

    If you're a sub-par actor who has starred in shitty movies, doesn't matter how much money it pulls in, you're still a piece of shit actor.

    That's why Tom Cruise will never win an Oscar.

    Martin Lawrence does not get fifty million a movie. If you think that, you smoke rocks.

    True. How was Eternal Sunshine marketed in America? Over here they doctored the trailer heavily and it was marketed as a wacky comedy. Stupid.

    they barely showed commercials for it.

    it wasnt so much that ppl thought it was "oh hey jim carrey's latest comedy", it was just that people didnt know about nor cared enough to see it

    lol.
