Five of our favorite Matthew Broderick comedies


Posted by on

We’re just going to put it out there: Ben Stiller’s dark comedy “The Cable Guy,” is one of the most underrated comedies of all time. If you haven’t seen it before, or just want to watch a great movie again, we’re showing it tonight at 8/7c. The movie stars Matthew Broderick as Steven, a good guy who just wants a good deal on cable. Is that too much to ask? Well, when your cable guy is Ernie ‘Chip’ Douglas (Jim Carrey) it is. When Steven’s engagement falls apart, he decides to revel in his renewed bachelorhood with the full cable package and as many television channels as possible. He has to keep up with “Maron,” after all. At the urging of his pal Rick (Jack Black), Steven bribes a weirdo cable installer for a sweet deal. Steven ends up with the channels and a new best friend to boot, whether he wants it or not. Carrey’s Chip is a lonely and psychotic man-child raised on television who soon starts stalking Steven with an alarming alacrity. His increasingly disturbing and eventually dangerous behavior repeatedly sabotages Steven’s attempts to woo back his ladylove (Leslie Mann), of whom the “cable guy” is soon extremely jealous. Things go from bad to worse and the result is pitch-black comedy that is simultaneously uncomfortable and wildly entertaining to watch.

Of course, Broderick has starred in some great comedies over his long career. Here are five of our favorite of his comedies:

5. “Biloxi Blues”

4. “The Freshman”

3. “Election”

2. “The Cable Guy”

1. “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
