Edtv Reviews:

Even though I like most of the players, I really wasn't expecting much from this movie. I wound up surprised by its freshness, wit and thoughtfulness. I feared a terrible person's Truman Show, but this movie took a lot of the same themes and spun them in various directions. The movie lacked Truman's sadness and humanity but made up the difference with more concise and challenging social commentary (not to mention a better helping cast). Problems of celebrity, entertainment, the media, the notification age were all handled in interesting ways. When it required to be abrasive and shocking, Ed TV took its shots, but it usually remained in a very comfortable and entertaining middle ground. As a viewer, I felt like someone who had spent the previous 15 mins surfing channels before finally finding a gem worth watching.


I never liked reality shows,and when this film was shown on cable I decided to watch it and found it really interesting.Matthew McConaughey plays video shop clerk Ed Pekurny who lives with his parents and his large brother Ray Pekurny,played by Woody Harrelson.He is hired by a TV company that wants to do a 24-hour reality present based on his life,and Ed grabs the offer.In the beginning,the public says Ed that his present 'stinks',but as they see him getting involved with his elder brother's girlfriend,the ratings go above the roof.What's more,when Ed makes out live with the bombshell to end all bombshells,that is Elizabeth Hurley,the interest verges on voyeurism.The icing in the cake comes when Ed's father suddenly turns up from nowhere,having abandoned him and his brother years ago.The movie is a well-made documentation of the vulgarity of the public that makes up the tv audience not only in America,but the entire world.Sex and scandal will everytime be the top-sellers,whether it is an ordinary man's tale or that of a celebrity.In fact,it is Ed's scandalous life that makes him America's Number One celebrity.McConaughey plays his role with ease,and so does Harrelson.Ellen Degeneres is nice as the unscrupulous TV producer,while Elizabeth Hurley's brief appearance leaves the audience gasping for more.Quite entertaining and very candidly made.


It's a shame that due to the timing of when Edtv was released, it was automatically deemed a pitiful copy of the Truman Show, a film that won our hearts the previous year. Now, I love the Truman Present too, very much, and I'll admit that I was was very uninterested in ever seeing a copy-cat ver of it. It was until just a several weeks ago that I now watched Edtv (even with the expectation that I would most likely not like it too much) and I gotta tell I was pleasantly surprised!Not only was Edtv funny and entertaining, but it was nearly nothing at all like the Truman Show. I mean, the ONLY similarity is the concept of a live TV present about an "ordinary" guy. But Truman didn't even know he was on TV. He was just living what he thought was an ordinary life. All the cameras and microphones were fully hidden and he lived in a city that was entirely fabricated from his wife and life-long greatest friend, to the rain and even the sun. His is a storyline of a boy searching for an escape from his daily life, which tiny by tiny he is realizing may not be what it seems. Ed on the another hand was a nobody who was selected to have a camera team now follow him around all day while he went on about his life. His life, and in turn the show, became more about immediate celebrity as viewers became enchanted in watching this loser become a mega-star over night. Folks flocked around him just as much to meet him as to be on TV themselves and he endured some major struggles in keeping his life and relationships normal, which was impossible with his celebrity status and on-camera life.Both films had a theme of America's fixation with TV, and more specifically Reality TV, but have various plots and overall themes altogether. I think Edtv was a very enjoyable film and Mathew McConaughey and Jenna Elfman delivered wonderful performances. Not to mention the mind boggling, and I think underrated, job of editing such an enormous amount of footage. Considering that while the movie cameras were rolling, the video cameras were rolling too, and just about all of the video footage you see was now shot when you see it being shot, I think that Ron Howard did a nice job of keeping track of it all and now making it work. So when someone says, "Well, it was no Truman Show" they are absolutely right. I think it is a nice film that stands on it's own and could stand proud.
