The Cable Guy
Release: June 10, 1996
Release: June 10, 1996

If you think Jim Carrey's comedy is an acquired taste, think of The Cable Guy as a potent bottle of bittersweet wine. The film has a lingering aftertaste, but it is just a bit too dark, a bit too extreme to invite another serving. On the other hand, you've got to give Carrey some credit for risking his $20-million paycheck (and a big chunk of box-office revenue) on this black comedy. A needy, psychologically unbalanced cable-television installer (Carrey) forces his friendship upon an unsuspecting bachelor (Matthew Broderick) who has just broken up with his fiancé. He soon finds thought the his new friend has a dark twist, and when nobody believes him, he has to be the one to reveal what is happening.

        I have the soundtrack CD for this movie. It's pretty good. I also saw this on VHS at a video store. I tried watching it, but the tape had no sound, only picture...weird...

          This movie consisted of dark comedy. It was also kind of creepy. Lol. Nevertheless, it DID have its funny moments.

              Many claimed this ruined Jim Carrey's career. I personally don't think it did.It may not be his BEST movie but it's not as bad as people make it out to be.

                My first theatre going experience if I remember correctly. While we were in Florida, my parents had to nearly drag me along and they regretted it. They hated it to death themselves! As for me, I was too young/dumb to even pay attention.

                  I always do the music that Jim Carrey does when he battles his friend in the middle ages place, it makes my friends crack up when we spar and leaves them open for a big punch
