    Satire in a blanket of bland.
  2. I've never been sold on this anti-TV thesis. It's snooty. It assumes we in the audience have seen the light denied the lower orders. Invariably, the people in these movies who are rendered blotto by the tube are dingbat common folk. EDtv takes this notion to a new low.

    By the end the movie audience, like the electorate, is less satisfied than strung-out and exhausted.
  4. 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 is a funny and moving movie where a man encounters fame but rejects it for his usual life.

    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+.
