The Cable Guy Reviews

Chris Cabin
Slant Magazine

An unsettling oddity and unexpected box office success at the time of its release, The Cable Guy now seems a prophetic dark comedy and a key into the sensibilities of Jim Carrey, Ben Stiller, and Judd Apatow.

If there's one thing worse than being stalked, it's being stalked by Jim Carrey.
