Stiller showed his flair for dark material with this wily, disturbing psychodrama about the sinister relationship between a creepy cable installer (Jim Carrey at his greatest) and an unsuspecting customer (Matthew Broderick, in a terrific straight-man performance). Writing in 2011 in The New York Times, Dave Kehr called this “a seminal film…for the striking new tone it helped to establish.”
