About The Cable Guy

It's a time-honored urban ritual: Slip the cable guy $50 and you'll get all the movie channels for free. But when Steven Kovacs (Matthew Broderick) moves into a new apartment, he finds his cable guy (Jim Carrey) is not like the others. He doesn't want Steven's 50 bucks; all he wants is a friend-and he won't take no for an answer. Steven is about to learn there's no such thing as free cable. His unwanted friend weasels himself further and further into his life, manipulating Steven's girlfriend, inviting himself to Steven's parents' house and eventually getting Steven thrown in jail. The cable guy will go to any lengths to maintain their friendship. And Steven discovers that he'll have to go to great lengths to end it.
