It seems appropriate that Ron Howard, who grew up on television, would make a movie about a guy who agrees to have his entire waking life broadcast by a cable station called True TV. Matthew McConaughey is pleasant as Ed, a video store clerk who gets more than he bargained for when he agrees to be the subject of the show. EDtv looks at the nature of celebrity and the right to privacy but never delves too deeply. Despite this missed opportunity, the movie does succeed as a comedy.
