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.

Jim Carrey: Man Of Many Faces (16 movies items)

"Before I start with this one, i'd just like to issue a warning - this is also different than your standard Jim fare, as in this one he's delving into the darker side of the human psyche. This is one of Jim's first villainous parts and by far his creepiest part...i'm of course talking about the underrated black comedy gem The Cable Guy. The name of Jim's character is never really revealed but he uses many aliases but the one he goes by is Chip Douglas. The movie revovles around Matthew Brod"

Total Film's 29 Films That Predicted The Future (29 movies items)

"What it predicted: Home shopping, online gaming. During his ‘Future is now’ rant, Jim Carrey’s cable guys yells: “Soon every American home will integrate their television, phone and computer. You'll be able to visit the Louvre on one channel, or watch female wrestling on another. You can do your shopping at home, or play Mortal Kombat with a friend from Vietnam. There's no end to the possibilities!” And do you know what? Apart from the Mortal Kombat bit, it’s proved to be a scarily "

"13.06.2014 "Can I get a knife or fork?" "There were no utensils in medieval times, hence there are no utensils AT Medieval Times. Would you like a refill on that Pepsi?" "There were no utensils but there was Pepsi?" This is another movie i didn't like at first, but grows on me each time i watch it. Jim Carrey has never been crazier, or scarier than he is here. It's probably his darkest role so far. At least in his comedies. Ben Stiller really shows here that he is one of the best comedy direct"

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

"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"
