  1. The results are comical and unexpected -- and just a bit eerie.
  2. Howard has a wonderful touch with actors, and almost all of them here have their moments. [26 March 1999, Friday, p.A]
  3. With down-to-earth comic instincts, it simply invests its story with a loud ring of truth.

    Like its star, Howard's movie is affable, but has limited range.

    Neither a revelation nor a total wash, EDtv is instead solid comic filmmaking. I just can't help but think it could have been so much more.

    A certain staleness hangs over the proceedings despite the best efforts of the cast and the fun-minded creative team.
  7. But it's also Howard's and his audience's misfortune that a good time can be had by all only if nothing of substance gets said.

    Ed TV is an amusing comedy drama. Ed is a regular guy who gets his life televised 16 hours a day.
    Hijinks ensue and his family are featured on the show as well. An excellent cast and storyline make
    the movie hilarious. The movie is a clever social satire and shows how television affects society. The
    movie also shows how television plays a part in people's daily lives, A+.
