Actors: Jim Carrey, Matthew Broderick

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Cable Guy

Steven is an architect, who is just moving into a new apartment after breaking up with his girlfriend, Robin. His television isn't working so he calls a cable guy, who makes him a preferred costumer. He is then following Steven everywhere and helping him with his love life. He is even sent to prison. When Steven tells the Cable Guy to leave him alone, he gets ready to ruin his life. This film starts out promising, but then drops down a lot. This film is terribly poor, and unfunny. Jim Carrey plays on a darker role then his lighter characters.
