THE PLOT:

The Countess needs a vampire every new century and time is running out, but in this new age, virgins are rarer then spend thrift Leprechauns, it seems that all hope is lost for her until she meets Mark Kendell. Average dork and virgin, but when Mark's girlfriends finds out about the plot against Mark, it's on.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

Jim Carey shines as the hapless human prey of the stunning Lauren Hutton. The story works and the human works. There are some character issues but they are so minor they barely count, any fan of Jim Carey should see this movie. 9 STARS.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I agree with Zedd on this, this is one of my favorite Jim Carey movie and the Cable Guy is my least favorite. And I agree with Zedd on the minor character issues. But it still works and I am still a big fan of Jim Carey, even after seeing the Cable Guy. 9 STARS.
