About the Movie
Jim Carrey is Chip Douglas, cable installer. Raised on television sitcoms, he wants life to look just like My Three Sons. And when he meets single guy Steven Kovacs (Matthew Broderick), he sees his chance for some serious male bonding. But Chip's idea of friendship - which includes physical assault, a game of 'Porno Password' and a medieval joust - may be hazardous to Steven's health. In Chip's own immortal words, "I can be your best friend... or your worst enemy." Directed by Ben Stiller (Reality Bites).

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Though this should have been an opportunity for Mr. Carrey to expand upon his runaway success and solidify long-term stardom, The Cable Guy instead offers the shocking sight of a volatile comic talent in free fall.
Rotten: Carrey runs riot, and Stiller won't stop him.
Fresh: It's a fairly interesting effort -- much more ambitious than most Carrey vehicles.
Fresh: As a follow up to hits Ace Ventura and The Mask, this black comedy curio bewildered Carrey's fans and failed at the box office. But its nervy sheen and strung-out comedy set pieces work well.
Hilarious! I cant believe nobody reviewed it!
