Wonderful off-beat dark comedy about what happens to the brain when one has watched too many cult shows on T.V. I actually like how Jim Carrey manage to go from an apparent idiot to a more dangerous and crazy psychopath showing that he has an acting range that goes a little beyond the usual comedian.
"Cable Guy" has long been my favorite Jim Carrey comedy vehicle, a movie that crackles with such an offbeat and nervous energy it's halfway remarkable that it got made ("We all get lonely," "Yeah, but I get REALLY lonely"). Only now do I realize how much of this was informed by the aesthetic of The Ben Stiller Show, with its company players elevating the film and allowing Carrey to shine in one of his darkest roles.
One of the best movies ever...Jim Carey's acting is just incredible!Adorable movie.The psychology goes hand in hand with pictures & acting.The Drama & Comedy at perfect balance.Having the right crew & right script,I think Ben Stiller proves to be a Master...!*
