'EdTV' vs. 'The Truman Show'

Year: 1998/99 Premise: Reality TV comes to the big screen The Verdict: Both movies feature a man whose life is a TV show, though "Truman" doesn't know it, while "Ed" does. "Ed" was a solid comedic effort (and was remarkably ahead of its time, looking back), but "The Truman Show" earned several Oscar noms and was Jim Carrey's first serious role. Edge: "Truman" -- Andrea Reiher, Zap2it
