The Cable Guy (1996)

Ending / spoiler

(3 votes)

Jim Carrey takes Matthew Broderick's girlfriend to that big satellite dish. Broderick heads there (a neighbor told him that Carrey was heading to the "information super highway"). There's a fight. Carrey, disappointed that Broderick is no longer his friend, jumps on to a dish trying to kill himself. Carrey lands on the tip of the dish, missing the sharp point by a few inches and luckily doesn't get impaled. Unfortunately, for the rest of the U.S., the second that Jim Carrey landed on the dish, the signal on the Sam Sweet trial is interrupted... so the viewers (and us, the audience watching this movie) do not know if Sweet is guilty or not guilty. Jim Carrey, surviving his leap, is taken by paramedics and one of them says "You're gonna be all right, buddy.. you're gonna make it!" Carrey says: "Am I really your buddy?"

Chip Douglas

Continuity mistake: The morning after the party at Steven's, Chip is at Steven's house making eggs for them, watch closely as Chip eats. While they are talking about Heather being a prostitute, Chip repeatedly loses the eggs off his fork, but continues to put the fork in his mouth, and makes a sound like he is actually eating the eggs. He does it about 4 or 5 times during their whole conversation. (00:50:35)

Sam Sweet: [911 call being played.] Oh my God! Oh my God! My twin brother has been shot! I think it was an Asian gang or something... There was this guy, he looked Asian... And he was speaking another language, I'm pretty sure it was... Asian.
