EDtv | 1999 | PG-13 | - 4.2.5

Matthew McConaughey becomes the willing subject of a 24-hour all live TV show, with unpredictable results. Also with Woody Harrelson, Jenna Elfman, Elizabeth Hurley, Dennis Hopper, Sally Kirkland, Viveka Davis, Ellen DeGeneres, Rob Reiner and Martin Landau. [2:03]

SEX/NUDITY 4 - Sexual innuendo and discussions of sex and nudity; there's also a description of a penile implant. A couple kiss passionately and fondle each other; then they move to a table where they thrust against each other (they remain clothed). A couple kiss tenderly and then passionately. A couple begin kissing in a car and the man removes the woman's shirt (we only see her shoulders). A couple is also shown kissing in bed, under sheets, exposing bare shoulders and a leg. A man wakes up with an erection (we briefly see a bulge through his sweatpants) and he reaches into his pants and rubs himself. Two shirtless men are shown a few times. A woman's naked buttocks and her bare back are seen, a woman wears a very tight fitting sweater, a woman wears a revealing evening gown and several women wear midriff-revealing tops.

VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - There's a really gross scene of a man clipping his toenails in extreme close up. A woman is knocked to the floor by a large crowd and a man gets knocked in the head with a football. A man falls on a cat. Two men nearly fight.

LANGUAGE 5 - Three profane hand gestures (one is quite elaborate), about 10 scatological terms, 1 sexual term, a couple of dozen anatomical references, 2 remarks about sexual performance, many mild obscenities and a few insults.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Human nature, relationships, divorce, greed, TV and TV ratings, infidelity, lying, loyalty.
MESSAGE - Family and love are more important than fame and fortune. Paternity doesn't necessarily mean fatherhood.
CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
