"It's difficult to create a good movie that mixes comedy and drama in a good way. EDtv manages to do it. The movie is perhaps more relevant today than it was when it was released. In 1999, the story was a satire of what might have been, but today with all the reality-tv-shows, it is... well... reality. The movie is fun but it also has something to say. Who wants to be famous. It seems like everyone does. But what sort of skeletons would they find in your closet if they followed you, or your family, around 24/7? And is there a voyeur in all of us, since millions of people tune in to watch everyday people do everyday things? And how can we have such strong opinions about people we only know from TV? In the EDtv, the viewers have opinions about Ed's girlfriend. 71% think she's ugly and annoying; dump her. The viewers want British model Jill to be his new girlfriend and the producers are quick to arrange it. So what's really real and what's manufactured on so called "reality" shows?
EDtv is a good mix of drama and comedy and the cast is great. Matthew McConaughey, Jenna Elfman and Woody Harrelson play the leads and the supporting cast includes Ellen DeGeneres, Martin Landau and Dennis Hopper, all doing a great job."
