It's the unforgettable story of a nobody...that everybody's watching! Matthew McConaughey and Jenna Elfman star in this hilarious romantic comedy Joel Siegel of Good Morning America calls "Big-Laugh Funny." Ed Pekurny (McConaughey) is just a regular guy who feels he has nothing to lose by agreeing to be a star of a new reality-based TV show. Almost overnight, the program becomes a hit, and suddenly this goofy but engaging video clerk is a national celebrity! Everything's fabulous...until Ed falls head-over-heels for Shari (Elfman), the girlfriend of his brother Ray (Woody Harrelson). Suddenly their most private moments become public entertainment - and the ratings go through the roof - as millions of fans tune in to watch a real soap opera filled with comedy and romance. Superbly directed by Ron Howard and featuring a stellar supporting cast including Elizabeth Hurley, Sally Kirkland, Martin Landau, Ellen DeGeneres, Rob Reiner and Dennis Hopper, EDtv is an outrageous look at instant fame, overnight success, and sharing your life with a few million of your closest fans.

This is an Ultraviolet title, but the encoding transfer for the film (Disc-to-Digital) did not work for me using the VUDU-to-go app on my home PC. At the time, I was borrowing my parents’ copy of the film, and so I was motivated to purchase my own copy of the DVD, for use and (cheaper) UV transfer. Buying the HD streaming title outright on VUDU is $13.99. Knowing that my new DVD copy of EdTV In would also not register (which I have since verified), I planned to have the film transferred at the Walmart Photo counter using their in-store conversion process.
Just this week (March 21st, (?)), VUDU updated their mobile application to include a Disc-to-Digital bar code scanning feature. Accordingly, an individual may scan a DVD bar code in their home library, and then transfer the film to an HD (or SD) stream. However, VUDU has added a copy protection feature that uses GPS and prevents a user from scanning titles (in their local Walmart or other) to fake the ownership process for digital transfer. Should this work for me, it may eliminate the need to wait at the Walmart photo counter for certain titles.
All this stated, EdTV In is a romantic comedy worth owning. Here’s a quick quiz: what film did Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConnaughy star in together prior to the Emmy Award-Winning True Detective? The answer is EdTV.
Really hit to nail predicting where reality TV would go.
Could easily cut the movie length to hour and a half rather than 2 hours and 4 minutes.
It would actually made it better IMO, help to keep a good rhythm on some slow moments.
A really good cast of comedic talent which includes Matthew McConougehy, Woody Harrelson, Ellen Degeneres, Elizabeth Hurley, Jenna Elfman,and more.
