Originally planned as a silly vehicle for Chris Farley, in the hands of director Ben Stiller and star Jim Carrey, The Cable Guy became an opportunity for Carrey to flex some of his darker comedic muscles as stalker Chip Douglas. Matthew Broderick plays Steven, an average Joe who is forlorn over his recent breakup with girlfriend Robin (Leslie Mann). When he moves into a new apartment, Steven comes in contact with Chip, who shows up to hook up the cable. Before he knows it, and whether he likes it or not, Steven has a new best-friend in the obnoxious and clingy Chip. However, Steven soon learns that obnoxious is a walk in the park compared to Chip's behavior when Steven tells him he doesn't want to be his pal anymore. What's worse, no one -- including Robin or his family -- believes Steven when he accuses the seemingly harmless Chip of being a malevolent menace. George Segal and Jack Black also star along with Stiller, who plays twins loosely-based on the Menendez brothers.~Matthew Tobey
All-New Commentaries with Ben Stiller, Judd Apatow, and Jim Carrey
This is (in my opinion) one of Jim Carrey’s best movies!! Super funny and definitely has a good storyline to it!! It has some pretty good songs throughout the movie as well!! I don’t know what to say about it really...I mean it’s just THAT good!! It has some good twists and turns throughout the movie. If you’re into Jim Carrey then I’m sure you’ll enjoy this one!!!
Its simple if your a Jim Carrey fan you have to see this movie. This is really the first showing of a dramatic side to his acting and later paved the way for even more dramatic roles. The amount of stars-before-they-were-stars in this movie is kind of astonishing. Funny and dark, this is in the black comedy hall of fame. BTW, it has an awesome soundtrack and the extras, more specifically the commentary is and are hilarious.
