EDtv 1999 122 PG-13 3.0 out of 5 ducks
Cynthia, TV producer, has an idea about how to save the station: a reality-based show about a person's life, broadcast 24 hours a day: "ED TV." It's off to a slow start as they follow around normal guy Ed, but it gets a bit more interesting when Ed drops in on brother Ray, who's overnight guest isn't his girlfriend Shari. Shari dumps Ray, and Ed and Shari each confess attraction for each other, and the show takes on a soap opera like air, and the ratings jump. The 30 day broadcast is extended to 60 days by Cynthia, and down-and-out Ed is glad to get the money. The show begins to impact his relationship with Shari, who ends up moving away abstemiously because of the coverage, but really due to relationship fears. Hoping to boost ratings, Cynthia is pressured into bringing in a model that seemed to have the hots for Ed, but nothing happened. Ed tries quitting, and station manager tells him the contract says he and his family (they all signed releases) are on the air until the station pulls it, or Ed is responsible for lost income. Ed ends up switching it around on them, and offers the audience $10,000 to the best bit of dirt on the station executives. At 9pm Saturday as Ed is about to reveal station manager Mr. Whitaker has a penile implant, the show is taken off the air. Shari comes back to town, Ed sees her and runs after her, and they end up together. We close with Ed and Shari in bed, watching the TV talk program guessing how long before the world forgets who Ed is; the guesses ranged from 5 years to six months. Moving film reel
