Cable Guy, The: Ben Stiller’s Dark Comedy

Ben Stiller’s dark comedy, The Cable Guy, is released on Blu-ray Disc on March 1, 2011.  

In one of his strongest performances, Jim Carrey plays Chip Douglas, a lonely and disturbed cable installer. Raised on television sitcoms, he wants life to look just like My Three Sons. And when he meets single guy Steven Kovacs (Matthew Broderick), he sees his chance for some serious male bonding.

But Chip’s idea of friendship, which includes physical assault, a game of ‘Porno Password’ and a medieval joust, proves to be hazardous to Steven’s mental and emotional health. In Chip’s own immortal words, “I can be your best friend… or your worst enemy.”   Unsettling consequences, to say the least, ensue when Steven rejects the cable guy’s forced friendship.

 

Directed by Ben Stiller and produced by Judd Apatow, The Cable Guy boasts a roster of comedic talent that includes appearances by Jack Black, Leslie Mann, Janeane Garofalo, Owen Wilson, and Andy Dick.

 

Special features on The Cable Guy Blu-ray Disc include never-before-released footage from the archives of Ben Stiller and Judd Apatow, including more than 20 minutes of deleted scenes, an all-new commentary with Carrey, Stiller and Apatow, a gag reel, rehearsal footage, TV specials from HBO and Comedy Central, audition and camera test footage, and a music video.
