The Cable Guy - Movie Synopsis & Plot
Steven Kovacs has just broken up with his girlfriend, Robin, and is moving in to his own apartment. One of his first steps is to get cable and his brother, Earl, told him that if he slips the cable guy 50 bucks he'll give you free premium channels. Hesitant, he asks the strange cable guy for the premium channels and he gets them, but not without a price. The Cable Guy doesn't want money; he wants a friend. Unable to say no, Steven goes on an outing with him. However, even when that's over, the Cable Guy still wants to do more stuff and everytime Steven says no, the Cable Guy will go to greater and greater lengths to stay his friend, including blackmail and kidnapping.
