The Cable Guy
When recently single Steven moves into his new apartment, cable guy Chip comes to hook him up—and doesn't let go. Initially, Chip is just overzealous in his desire to be Steven's pal, but when Steven tries to end the 'friendship', Chip shows his dark side. He begins stalking Steven, who's left to fend for himself because no one else can believe Chip's capable of such behaviour.

"Goofy as all get out, and that’s why I like it. Okay, if you’re NOT a fan of Jim Carey’s distinct brand of humor, you can skip over this review… …but if you are and you’ve never seen this one, this is a good one. I enjoy his physical comedy and I think his various characters are hilarious — and he’s such a “SILLY PSYCHO” in this — plus, Matthew Broderick truly is just as adorable here as he was in ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off — There are so many scenes where you can tell Broderick is desperately trying to not break character & is trying to not crack up with laughter. The Cable Guy, who goes by several names in the movie (all TV character names) is a lonely man who grew up with the television as his only “babysitter,” causing him to develop an obsession with TV & film. There are several funny scenes featuring Jim Carey’s outlandish comedy… like: 🏀 The Slam Dunk scene… 👑 The Medieval Times fight scene where he imagines he’s Spock (🖖🏽) fighting Captain Kirk… 🎤☮️🎶 JC’s imitation of Grace Slick in a Rolling Stones “Rockumentary” at a karaoke party (my favorite scene🎬)… 🚽 The attack on Owen Wilson in the bathroom… (I can’t figure out what movie is being referenced in this scene 🤷♀️) 🕛 The ‘Midnight Express’ prison scene parody 🤣 … brutally funny😬 🙃 “P🤬RNO-Password” at Family Game Night … (Maybe that’s where my BFF got the idea to play this game and “***** Pictionary” at my Bachelorette Party??… 🤔) Plus, this flick has some pretty good lines, lots of movie references, & an adorable, young cast of favorite comedic actors from the 90’s (many who have VERY SMALL roles here, but they eventually became even bigger stars than they were back then).

"I loved this movie when it first came out. The darkness and satire still holds up with one hell of a cast, many before they really broke (Jack Black, Owen Wilson, Bob Odenkirk, Leslie Mann, etc). Beautiful widescreen cinematography too... Now if you’ll excuse me I have to go play Mortal Kombat with my friend from Vietnam."
"Jim Carrey chews the scenery but I loved it. Hilarious movie"
