During one scene, after Shari has left, Ed is in his video store and sees a woman in a wig and sunglasses outside whom he recognizes as Shari in disguise. In the background you can see a poster for the movie Vertigo (1958), which features a woman disguising herself in a similar fashion. See more »
When Ed follows Shari into the theatre's female bathroom the sign reads 'Female" but the sign below it shows it is a unisex bathroom with a man, woman and disabled images. See more »
I first want to say, all those comparing EDtv to "Truman" just miss the point completely. They are as different in approach and intent as are "The Rock" and "The Birdman of Alcatraz" which both happen to be set in the same prison.
"EDtv" is meant to be a comedy with a lot of subtle and not so subtle references to the intrusive nature of the media. The characters are very engaging and well-acted. I laughed all the way through this movie. That's all I think it was supposed to be.
It isn't quite as good as "As Good As It Gets" or "Analyze This", but I still give it 8 of 10!!
