There's No Such Thing as Free Cable

The manic madness of Jim Carrey strikes again in this totally wired, out of control comedy! Slip the cable guy fifty bucks and you'll get the movie channels for free - it's a time honoured urban ritual. But when Steven Kovacs (Matthew Broderick) moves into his new apartment he picks the wrong cable guy - this guy doesn't want fifty bucks; he just wants a friend for life. And he won't take no for an answer.

 Don't You Want Somebody to Love

Very good yet strange at the same time. Carrey is crazy as usual but very funny but also dark and sinister. His Karaoke scence singing "don't you want somebody to love is fantastic. And his Basketball skills are hilarious. The film kind of makes you feel sorry for the guy as all he wants is a friend.

Definitely one of jim carrey's best.Look out for owen wilson in a cameo role in this ben stiller directed film.You will be in hysterics from start to finish.How some people dont like this is beyond me!

 seriously underrated comedy

Many people regard the 'Cable Guy' as Jim Carrey's worst film, how wrong they are, I think after the phenomenal success of his films in the early 1990's - 'Ace Ventura', 'The Mask' & 'Dumb and Dumber' etc, people expected a film that was OOT funny, with no dark undertones,......but whats the problem with that it shows just how versatile 'Jim Carrey' is,............

I won't bore you with the story ,but in a nutshell (for people who haven't seen it), Jim Carrey plays 'Chip Douglas' a 'Cable Guy/psycho stalker of 'Steve' (Matthew Broderick), who orders illegal cable and becomes (air-quotes) friends with the 'Cable Guy'

Not one of Jims worst...but one of his BEST!!!!!

 Under-rated comedy

This is Hollywood funnyman Jim Carrey at his very very best!He stars as a cable installator stalking Stephen(the great Matthew Broderick) and threatens to disrupt his life in this dark comedy directed by Ben Stiller.

 not his best
