The Cable Guy is a 1996 American black comedy film directed by Ben Stiller, starring Jim Carrey and Matthew Broderick. It was released in the United States on June 14, 1996. The film co-stars Leslie Mann, Jack Black, George Segal, Diane Baker, Eric Roberts, Owen Wilson, Janeane Garofalo, David Cross, Andy Dick, Amy Stiller, and Bob Odenkirk.
The Cable Guy is way over the top, and yet he is so human. This film is best thought of as an absurd tragicomedy. I think it was probably a victim of Jim Carrey's earlier, broader work, and was perhaps unwelcome in the context of his career. This film is horribly underrated, so see it, and decide for yourself.
