The Cable Guy Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Originally planned as a silly vehicle for [[Performer~P22696~Chris Farley~chrisfarley]], in the hands of director [[Performer~P112816~Ben Stiller~benstiller]] and star [[Performer~P11257~Jim Carrey~jimcarrey]], The Cable Guy became an opportunity for [[Performer~P11257~Carrey~jimcarrey]] to flex some of his darker comedic muscles as stalker Chip Douglas. [[Performer~P8627~Matthew Broderick~matthewbroderick]] plays Steven, an average Joe who is forlorn over his recent breakup with girlfriend Robin ([[Performer~P215767~Leslie Mann~lesliemann]]). When he moves into a new apartment, Steven comes in contact with Chip, who shows up to hook up the cable. Before he knows it, and whether he likes it or not, Steven has a new best-friend in the obnoxious and clingy Chip. However, Steven soon learns that obnoxious is a walk in the park compared to Chip's behavior when Steven tells him he doesn't want to be his pal anymore. What's worse, no one -- including Robin or his family -- believes Steven when he accuses the seemingly harmless Chip of being a malevolent menace. [[Performer~P64316~George Segal~georgesegal]] and [[Performer~P195232~Jack Black~jackblack]] also star along with [[Performer~P112816~Stiller~benstiller]], who plays twins loosely-based on the Menendez brothers. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi
