Starts great with a good premise but...

Ed Pekurny (Matthew McConaughey) is an everyday guy with a loser video clerk job. TV producer Cynthia Topping (Ellen DeGeneres) wants to do a 24/7 reality show for a failing cable network. They choose to do the show with Ed. His brother Ray (Woody Harrelson) is a bit of a douche. Ray breaks his girlfriend Shari's (Jenna Elfman) heart, and she falls for Ed.

If there isn't the gimmick of a TV show, this would be a simple rom-com between McConaughey and Elfman. However, the movie is too simplistic about what a camera following somebody all the time would actually mean. This feels like a Hollywood movie of a Hollywood TV show of a Hollywood reality.

Director Ron Howard doesn't actually do edgy that well. It's definitely not his forte. And this movie needs to get down and dirty, but Howard's light touch fails him here. After an interesting start, it quickly gets boring. It's a speed bump in an otherwise great directing career. The sad thing is that it's so obvious that Howard is not up to this job.

Sneak Peek

Reality TV - 24/7 "surveillance and something some people are doing nowadays in some form. Filming themselves as much as possible and if they don't do it, there are enough cameras on the streets in some cities to cover you. Now let's begin with one major flaw: to be able to air all what we see, everyone would have to sign a contract with the TV station ... giving away their rights. Something completely unthinkable nowadays.

And not because it ain't happening (everyone films everyone),but because they make money with everyone. So if you can wrap your head around this and be like "ok it's a movie, creative freedom", you will be treated to a really funny romantic movie. Outdated things aside (yahoo? video stores unfortunately),this has a lot of heart. It also has quite some cliches and you can see where it is going . predictable but more than decent

"ed"iting the world for "tv"

In a way, it was sort strange that less than a year after "The Truman Show" came out, there was another movie about a man's life getting broadcast on TV. Moreover, it seemed like whereas "TTS" was more of a biting satire, "Edtv" was going soft - maybe trying to be cute - with cameras following a video store clerk (Matthew McConaughey). However, years of reality shows have shown just how disgusting TV can get. And these two movies predicted it. Although I do prefer the former, the latter actually seems to be portraying what we now know as reality shows.

So, I will say that this movie doesn't do as good a job as "The Truman Show", it does have some funny scenes. I actually thought that Ellen Degeneres and Rob Reiner were the two best cast members. OK seeing once; Ron Howard has done better. Also starring Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Hurley, Jenna Elfman, Sally Kirkland, Martin Landau, Dennis Hopper and Clint Howard.
