The Cable Guy starring Jim Carrey and Ben Stiller coming to Blu-ray

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has announced that their 1996 dark comedy THE CABLE GUY, starring Jim Carrey, Ben Stiller, Matthew Broderick, Leslie Mann and Jack Black, will be released in Blu-ray format on March 1, 2011.  If you don’t remember much about this film, it follows a lonely cable guy who latches onto one of his customers and tries unsuccessfully to become friends with him.  This was the film that pushed Jim Carrey into A-list status, as he was paid a record $20 million dollars to make this movie. THE CABLE GUY was directed by Ben Stiller and I suppose could be considered a cult classic.

I wasn’t terribly impressed with THE CABLE GUY back in 1996, but my opinion may change upon reviewing fourteen years later.  On a side note, I’m glad Jim Carrey is getting back into taking better roles.  If you haven’t had a chance to see him in I LOVE YOU PHILLIP MORRIS then I highly recommend catching it at the theaters, his performance is superb and is an indication of what we should be getting from Mr. Carrey in future roles. Special features for THE CABLE GUY include:
