Ive decided that the only 'CRITICS' that really count are his fans...screw the ones that write the reviews, they are too choosy...personally, a critic should be more then happy when an actor stretches their genere from comedy to something else especially if they pull it off and I believe Jims done that. I have high faith that the #23 will be thrilling and Jim will do well.

You cant believe everything you hear :) I think the critics only want him to stay in one thing - comedy...don't you like seeing him stretch his abilities? I know I do.

So since its the world premier for the movie, should we expect a lot of reviews soon?

"You can't fault the actors for the movie's shortcomings. Following rave reviews for his turn in the Oscar-winning "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind," Carrey seems determined to prove he's more than just a funny guy, though he's not particularly good in this picture; his work is too actorish, he tries too hard."

"The good news for Jim Carrey fans is that after staying out of the public eye for more than a year (since the release of 2005's “Fun with Dick and Jane”), Carrey is back with his funniest comedy in years. The bad news is that it's supposed to be a psychological thriller.

“The Number 23” is more than just a colossal misfire. It's Jim Carrey's “Battlefield Earth” -- a mind-boggling disaster that easily fits the bill as his worst starring vehicle."
,- Scott Mantz

So, I was waiting for the good reviews ... but the fact is that they went from 'not so good' to 'Bad, realy bad!'. :( So is my fear coming true? That this could be Carrey's first mediocre movie because of the not-so-talented shumacher.

And I know ... "You shouldn't listen to the critics". Yeah, believe me, I know. Who doesn't? WE ALL KNOW. I'm just reading them to know other people's experience on this movie and I'm just curious why they did/didn't like it. I sure know everybody should make up his own mind, and believe me, I do! I always do.

Also, for example, here in Belgium I actually care about some opinions by some critics I like to read. Some good writers! Because it's not America here. Mostly here 'critics' aren't famous, not over-payed and what they say has no impact at all if you see the box-office. And they do write interesting stuff. Don't know why it's so different oversea.

btw,

"the critics don't know a thing", "They just don't like Jim", ... you know, that sort of reactions are just childish and laughable. "My favorite actor is in it, so it will be good!" Damn, that's so wrong. I'm sorry for saying that out loud, but I think that's such, well, childish thinking.

* Sorry if I sound a bit rude, it's also because of my so-so English. Harder to choose less big words. I'm not meaning to point at anyone.

I have my doubts about '23', I always had. But I hope it's going to turn out to be ok.

Those damn critics.. Anways the critics didnt like The Majestic, but I enjoyed it, so I think ill enjoy The Number 23.

Critics really have a grudge against Carrey.
