I have to say, I loved Jim Carrey in some of his films like The Mask, Ace Ventura, Liar Liar and Bruce Almighty (although I guess some didn't?)

But yeah, after seeing the trailer, the only thing I got off the top of my head was "Liar Liar knockoff". And with The Number 23 totally wrecking his career, I doubt this movie will be able to revive it...not yet, at least.

When I saw the trailer to this, I thought "hmmm, that might be funny, but it's kinda like "Liar, Liar", except it's of him under some spell that forces him to say "yes" to everything instead of always telling the truth". Magic might not be a part of the story, but it does seem like another movie of Carrey getting into "funny" trouble as a result of his mouth and actions. Already saw that a decade ago, no thank you.

Based on your attitude towards Jim Carrey, I knew this forum was coming.  I won't give you an opinion until I see the film.

Personally, I have nothing against Carrey, although he has had a Razzie bulls-eye target on himself ever since 1994, the year of his trio of successful, yet annoying movies: "Ace Ventura," "The Mask" and "Dumb And Dumber." I don't think his chances of "winning" anything this year are that high -- not against the likes of other used-to-be-funny actors like Eddie Murphy, Mike Myers, and Will Ferrell.

Was #23 really that bad? It wasn't.

I thought The Number 23 was one of Jim Carrey's funniest movies. It
tried to scare the audience by showing them dates and groups of numbers
whose sum is equal to 23. "Oh God, the sum of these letters equal the
number 23, IT'S A CONSPIRACY!"

The fact that The Number 23 was classified as a "thriller" kinda threw me off.

Could you please list a movie that you do consider "bad". I bet that list is shorter.

It's at 45% at Rotten Tomatoes. So it's not that bad.

Looks like that it's just more vintage Jim Carrey, the one we've missed for...quite a few really bad Carrey movies!

  esp. when Martin Lawrence in College Road Trip was MUCH worse than Carrey and Ferrell ever could be (Myers and Murphy should be locks this year-again!)

I was quite happy how Yes Man was made.

The Plot was very reminiscent of the life changing events that occurred in 40 Year Old Virgin.
The sofisticated serious comedic tone was similar to Liar Liar

Carrey's performance was equal to his performance in Liar Liar.

only stubbling block
Some of the The supporting cast weren't members of a comedy and appeared to be part of a drama following a friend with social withdrawel and static life routines, which should be familiar to most of the audience.
Despite the movies aim to expose the viewers imagination and emapthise with the characters, some of the situations I could'nt empathise with as they were completely unbelievable.

I felt Bruce Almighty was entertaining too.

So I don't think Jim Carrey's career should or will conclude any time soon, he is much older now and his movies a much less slack stick than his past performances. and more sofisticated, life orientated. He is evolving into a comedian actor opposed to a Comic actor. More thought and less cream pies.

Carrey going to the well again. Which is bone dry.

Usually,Jim Carrey is the cherry and the movie is the pie.This time,he saves the day.
 
Although Zooey Deschannel's performance was average instead of bad,she still deserved a Razzie nom.,since she was in http://www.razzies.com/forum/m-night-shyamalans-the-happening_forum284.html - THE HAPENNIN' the same year.

I gave it a 4/10.

I don't see what the big deal is with Zooey Deschannel that she gets such high profile movie roles. She's okay at best.

You mean she's pretty?She is,but I thought we were passed that."That" means the Golden Age when Hollywood tried to trick us."That" also means the time not so long ago when they kept doing it,even though they knew we knew...or somethin'.Anyway,I wish she wasn't an actress based only on her looks.I know she's also a singer,but she became one after actin'.

Please,B.H.B.,don't think this is the door for another one of you speeches on why Hollywood sucks.

What, because she has giant, bug eyes? Hey, you can hire any number of actresses that have those.
