The Cable Guy
I really enjoy this dark comedy. Jim Carrey plays "Chip Douglas," a cable installation guy who latches on to a guy (played by Matthew Broderick) when doing a cable installation. Some parts I like--all the messages Chip leaves on Stephen's answering machine and the Medieval Times scenes. Though I think it's a funny movie, it also raises some interesting ideas to ponder about the impact of TV and cable on people's lives.
