Apatow: 'Carrey's Cable Guy was not a flop'
The moviemaker fears the 1996 dark comedy, which was directed by Ben Stiller, has been overlooked thanks to bad reviews and the thinking it was a flop - but it actually made a lot of money.
Apatow says, "It cost 42 (million dollars) and it made 60 here (in America) and 40 overseas, and we thought, 'That's alright, no one can get hurt there,' but the expectation was that it was gonna make a bazillion dollars and so it was treated like this gigantic disaster."
The director/producer admits he still has happy memories from working on the film - he fell for his wife, actress Leslie Mann, during the auditions, when he was playing Carrey's role.
