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 !

Funny Movie

Pop Culture Phenomenon Films: 90’s (735 movies items)

" At one point in time, Jim Carrey was one of the highest comedic actors, because of the successes of the Ace Ventura films, Dumb and Dumber, and The Mask. So naturally, the studio paid him lots of cash to be in this film, figuring that audiences would be interested in a dark comedy, with Carrey in it. They weren’t. Jim Carrey, plays an mysterious cable guy, who offers “free cable”, to Steven Kovac, played by Matthew Broderick. Cable Guy, later ingratiates himself into his life, and afte"

Movies I watched in July 2019 (22 movies items)

" Date: 7/10/2019 Viewed: IMDB TV Re-watch Note: This is still my favorite comedy movie from Jim Carrey (The Truma Show is more of a drama than a comedy if you ask me). I love seeing Jim Carrey playing a more darker and less family friendly character compare to The Mask and Ace Ventura at the time. The movie has a lot of great funny and memorable moments that always me laugh hard. I also enjoy the other cast of characters in this movie because they have a lot of personality and are memorable.
