A chronically underrated film in my humble opinion. Jim Carrey flexes the darker side of his comic persona as The Cable Guy who hooks up Matthew Broderick's character with free cable. Believing the illegal cable deal ignited a strong friendship between the two, he seeks to spend more time with Broderick, who at first welcomes him as a friend. Carrey's behaviour becomes increasingly erratic as the ... read more

Ben Stiller is a shitty actor,a shity director which can easily be concluded after watching this movie,and also a shitty excuse for a human beeing ! Useless,not funny,stupid,especially the parts where 'director' makes a few 'meaningfull' tv screen entrances as an evil twin brother who shocked the entire Usa arghhh

This movie is funny. My two favorite parts are the knight fight and the Karaoke.

A good movie

“Ben Stiller has been for a while one of the most successful comic actors during the last 20 years but, as a director, he has been struggling somehow. His directing debut ‘Reality Bites’ was barely seen when it was released (since then it has become more or less a cult-status. You should check it out) and his sophomore directing effort was seriously a flop. Personally, I thought that this flick was pretty good. Indeed, something I always enjoyed and admired with Jim Carrey is that, from time to time, he chooses to move away from his usual hysterical funny parts and tries something drastically different. Here, he remains a funny guy but displays a rather dark and ominous personality which I found quite intriguing. Maybe the audience at the time were put off by seeing Carrey playing the b” read more

Filmsite's Greatest Funniest Movie Moments/Scenes (224 movies items)

"The "medieval times" scene in which cable guy Chip Douglas (Jim Carrey) takes cable customer Steven Kovacs (Matthew Broderick) to the "finest restaurant in town" -- "Medieval Times" -- where they are waited upon by "serving wench Melinda" (Janine Garafolo) and Steven asks about the incongruities: "There were no utensils but there was Pepsi?"; also when Chip pretends to be Hannibal Lecter from The Silence of the Lambs by placing pieces of chicken skin on his face, and when the two of them - armor"

Movies That Predicted The Future (18 movies items)

" Marriage of TV, Computer, Phone & Games Devices During the film’s climactic stand-off between Chip (Carrey) and Steven (Matthew Broderick), Chip screams about all the ways technology is going to transform; a combination of television, computers and phones. Perhaps most prophetically, he suggests you’ll be able to play Mortal Kombat with a friend living in Vietnam. In the present day, online gaming is a cultural mainstay, and services like Skype and on-demand TV fully live up to Chip’s"
