Sexual references and implied sex. Some kissing. Woman’s cleavage.


A TV screen showing women in bathing suits dancing to a karaoke track is shown behind a man while he sings. The scene starts with a close-up of one woman’s cleavage.
We see Steven rhythmically humping the cable guy’s back with him saying “oh yeah”, but it turns out that he was trying to crack his back. At first, this scene looked like a strong gay sex scene.


A woman sensually plays with Steven’s hair and then kisses his neck in the bedroom, as soon as they start to kiss they are interrupted by a few partygoers but they leave the room just as the woman climbs on top of the man; sex is implied.
The cable guy presses his right chest up against some glass.
A group of people play a game of “porno password” in which they must guess words like “foreskin” and even cruder terms through clues given by other players.


Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


This may be the most underestimated work in Jim Carrey’s career and even in all comedy films since the 1990s.

So far, the image of Jim Carrey in the eyes of many fans is still the madness in the detective plane head. No wonder, as a debut work, the image of Ace Ventura was a heavy bomb to the whole comedy industry at that time. Almost no one thought that comedy could perform like this (of course, it had something to do with the comedy talent of director Tom xiadiac). The non convergent body language and expression tone break the traditional cognition from all levels. As mentioned earlier, Jin Kairui’s early works were indeed acutely influenced by the times, and the anti intellectual character image matched his performance style perfectly. However, it must be taken into account that Jin Kairui had been struggling in the television circle for many years at that time, which was not so much a blockbuster as a natural thing.

Although he failed in the transition period many years later, Jim Carrey’s understanding of comedy and even film is very sensitive. After becoming famous in World War I in 1994, he continued to attack the city and pull out the stronghold of “a fool and a melon” and “disguised geek”, followed by “detective plane head 2” the next year, and then took over Robin Williams to participate in the heavy transformation of Batman Forever at that time.

The next year was the cable repairman.

Frank speaking, the representative role of Jim Carrey, has never seen a simple or even stupid comic image since the Riddler. Only two years after becoming famous, he has begun to seek innovation and change, and look for breakthroughs in convergence. Skipping this one, the characters in cable repairman, king of lies, fake God in the post-9 / 11 era, Mr. Haohao and Mr. Pope’s penguin are the result of the combination of personal characteristics and conventions. Here, we will not discuss the challenge and height he intends to achieve in literary and artistic films (in fact, all his literary and artistic works have obvious personal expression intention). From the perspective of comedy alone, what we see should not be personal compromise, but an excellent actor who gradually grows up in the changes of the times.

In contrast, macmiles and wilfarrell have not yet asked to sell stupid comedy images. At least Adam Sandler has stopped being mentally retarded since he embarked on the road of romantic comedy.

The greatest achievement of fake God in 2003 is the discovery of the next generation of comedian Steve Carrell; In 2008, Mr. Goodman made many people notice Bradley Cooper for the first time; The cable TV repairman in 1996 directly contributed to the birth of the R-class “rotten boy Gang” Dynasty that has called the wind and rain for more than ten years.

Being beaten down by his own excavation, Jim Carrey will not be the first or the last.

But those who can be called the king of comedy and can play his role have no him since.

All these efforts began here only two years after becoming famous.

Leaving aside Jim Carrey’s factor, “cable repairman” itself can be regarded as the earliest rotten Gang work. Many people, both in front of and behind the stage, are the comedies we are familiar with later: Judd arpatu, Ben Stiller, Jack Black, Owen Wilson, David cross and Leslie Mann. In fact, almost every actor who participated in the Ben Stiller show appeared in the film.

By the way, there’s another exciting Jon Claire (2.5men, have you seen it?) Representative of the declining Hollywood little man: Matthew Broderick.

It’s easy to find that Jim Carrey’s role is not set for him. In fact, if we take out Jim Carrey and replace him with Ben Stiller (even a more nameless Chris Farley from SNL), the atmosphere and expressiveness of the whole film will compete with those of the current rotten Gang comedies. Which is, a popular commodity with few highlights.

So what impact did Jim Carrey, who took away a record 20 million film pay, have on the film?

That is to bring ordinary satirical sketches into the category of crazy black films.

The cabal guy played by Jim Carrey (yes, the real name of the character has never been revealed) is probably the most unique stalker. The elements of humor and comedy that the audience should have experienced in the film are permeated from beginning to end from Jim Carrey’s crazy temperament. This madness makes the film move from the face of comedy to the scope of horror. The dark atmosphere he brought was unexpected to other creators.

This result is obviously not loved by everyone.

The most intuitive response is at the box office. The audience went in with the idea of comedy. When they came out, they were not only confused, but also in bursts of cold sweat. What the hell is this? The participation of many elements makes it difficult for the audience and even the critics to make the expected psychological positioning: is this a comedy or a starker thriller?

Well, cable repairman is obviously not a “love at first sight” movie. However, it is undeniable that some of the comedy passages have become classics: the chaotic war of medieval restaurants, the karaoke of driven crazy and the guessing game with a high degree of shame, which are as impressive as diamonds.

The essence of cable repairman is not here.

Ben Stiller’s big net in this film, which may be the most outstanding of his directing works, has just begun.

The acting skills shown by Jim Carrey in cable guy are probably the most wonderful before Truman’s world. If any comedian plays the role of this starker, he can’t get rid of the established pattern of pricking and disgusting. Only Jim Carrey did it.

He endowed the role of cable guy with a sadistic, extreme, forced and even two-sided antisocial personality.

He is so nice, but he is so sick, but he is so nice……

This way of interpretation makes Jim Carrey’s performance in the film more ambitious than any work.

This also makes the tragic atmosphere behind the role become particularly strong.

Cable guy is one of a group of people who are completely raised by TV. To a large extent, his understanding of the world comes from the television media. And what impact did this have on him? He is very clever, knows a lot, and has great means for human and worldly sophistication. The only thing missing is a true friend.

Taught him how to be a man, but didn’t teach him how to be himself.

Just as the film is full of coverage of the murder of the twins played by Ben Stiller, the intention of the media is not to educate, but just for entertainment. Even during the trial, film and television adaptations of ridicule cases have been made.

Hidden behind the screen is the lack of the audience’s mind.

This, and two years later “Truman’s world” can be said to be both inside and outside. In Truman’s world, he plays an insider on TV; “Cable repairman” is an outsider outside the corridor.

The satire of the two on TV and even the whole entertainment industry can be said to come down in one continuous line.

A repairman who installs TV lines for his family, but no one wants to know his name. Only when there is a problem with the TV signal and you want to rub the toll counter, will you think of it and take the initiative to contact this person. In addition, people don’t need him, don’t need the communication of strangers, just TV and TV programs. The products of science and technology make people no longer need the sensory satisfaction brought by the body, so communication and thinking are extinguished. The wreckage left behind is the loneliness and desolation of cable guy.

So far, television seems to have become an extension of human organs.

It doesn’t matter except TV. What is not needed is not true.

This is the Achilles heel of the entertainment age.

The so-called starker is also the self enjoying evil result of the creation and abnormal birth of this matter.

“I can be your best friend or your worst enemy.”

Until the end of the film, cable guy committed suicide and jumped off the antenna tower, preventing everyone from watching the “key” but irrelevant ruling paragraph. Suddenly, the screen turned into a snowflake. The dull look, the suspicion and despair of filming TV, and finally, the joy of opening books have changed the story of the whole film from a simple “dragon fight” to a painstaking silent recording.

And the cable guy, in the glory of introspection, got a second chance of redemption.

As a typical TV generation, cable guy’s understanding of the future can be described as scalpel precision: one day, the Internet, telephone and TV will enter thousands of households through cables, and even we can play games on the Internet with people from all over the world

Today, 20 years later, this is no longer imagination.

Isn’t the cable guy 20 years ago just like the delivery guy today?

Twenty years later, the audience just changed the screen and continued to stare.
