#42: “The Cable Guy”

What was once seen as an almost career ender for Jim Carrey has been more appreciated in recent years. But does it deserve cult classic status like so many movies achieve over time or does it suck and should be forgotten?

From IMDB: “A lonely and mentally disturbed cable guy raised on television just wants a new friend, but his target, a designer, rejects him, with bad consequences”

Cast:
Jim Carrey – The Cable Guy
Matthew Broderick – Steven M. Kovacs
Leslie Mann – Robin Harris

Director:
Ben Stiller
