On his birthday, Walter Sparrow, an amiable dog-catcher, takes a call that leaves him dog bit and late to pick up his wife. She's browsed in a bookstore, finding a blood-red-covered novel, a murder mystery with numerology that loops constantly around the number 23. The story captivates Walter: he dreams it, he notices aspects of his life that can be rendered by "23," he searches for the author, he stays in the hotel (in room 23) where events in the novel took place, and he begins to believe it was no novel. His wife and son try to help him, sometimes in sympathy, sometimes to protect him. Slowly, with danger to himself and to his family, he closes in on the truth. Written by

I watched this on release night and I have to say that it was awesome. The acting is great, the camera shots are great, and the story is great. I also loved the film noir style shots.
I feel that a majority of people posting negative comments about this movie (mostly before it was even out) are simply haters.
If you feel disappointed because this has Jim Carrey in it and it's not a comedy please do not be. Jim Carrey is an excellent actor and displays the dramatical emotion side of him very well in this movie, see also "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind". But, of course, there is humor in the less dramatic parts of the movie.
I definitely recommend seeing this movie.
