A creepy dark comedy that works in some parts, but in some parts it doesn't.

It starts pretty good, i was very interested. Jim Carry was good. Later it becomes nothing special. But still there were, later, some moments that were good. I liked trial on tv. Its okay film but i was very dissapointed after promising start, its just not what it could be.

A dark film that can't decide whether it wants to be an obsessive thriller or a black comedy. It doesn't really work as either and, by the midway point of the film, Jim Carrey's psycho schtick has become old and somewhat annoying.

Jim Carrey's most underrated film. He is too funny here. The Cable Guy is one of his best characters. A really good dark comedy.
