    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+.

    Ed is a funny and moving movie where a man encounters fame but rejects it for his usual life.

    Edtv is a clever amusing comedy-drama from Ron Howard. Ed works at a video store and his life gets broadcast on TV 16 hrs a day. The scenarios in the movie are funny and touching. Every actor acts well together through the movie. Every actor also puts genuine emotion and wit into their character. Ed TV is hilarious and smart compared to the Truman show. I found that movie very dull and the cast was weak. Watch Ed TV instead of the other movie, you'll thank me it is very memorable and fun. Expand

    Ed TV has non stop laughs and a terrific cast. All the actors complement one another and they have many
    scenes together. Ed gets his life shown on television every day for 16 hours. The show is beneficial but
    also a drawback because he doesn't want the attention. There are surprises in the movie that will entertain
    and amuse you for 2 hours. Overall a very amusing and realistic comedy-drama.

    Edtv has a gifted cast that will make you laugh guaranteed. The movie is clever and it is one of the more
    mainstream movies Ron Howard has directed. Ed has touching moments, amusing moments, and
    is a realistic comedy-drama.

    Howard's film, like McConaughey's performance, is unassuming, ingratiating and a little rough around the edges.

    Bleach out the colors, backdate the wardrobes, insert Gary Cooper and Rosalind Russell and you've got one of Frank Capra's lesser films.
  3. The results are comical and unexpected -- and just a bit eerie.
