Comic satire of reality TV; lots of dysfunction, sexuality.

...a fine premise that's utilized to progressively underwhelming effect...

EdTV isn't bad enough to get angry about, but it's a mundane and toothless satire.

Though thunder lost to "The Truman Show", this screenplay still has real and punchy dialogue.

The best part of the film is the bright and accessible script, [and] with Ron Howard as the director, you can be sure that you'll leave with a satisfied smile on your face.

Its screenplay veers in highly questionable directions before reaching a mean-spirited climax that outweighs Ron Howard's workmanlike filmmaking and the contributions of a star-powered cast.

Matthew McConaughey...leverages his immense charm to keep this broad comedy--highly reminiscent of the far superior Truman Show--airborne.

It's a slightly lackluster comedy that wants to have something to say, but never gets around to saying it. Or worse, says it, and the audience replies, 'And--?'

A respectable, intelligent film, but one, to be sure, that prospers more while in the individual moments, rather than one that remains deeply ingrained in your long-term memory.
