Continuity mistake: When Ed and Sherry get back together, you see a few shots of Rita, Sherry's roommate, watching them on TV and she's wearing a red top. Then about two minutes later, when Ed starts the contest you see another shot of her but she's now wearing different clothes, green dungarees and a grey jacket. Then later on just before Edtv is cut off, she's wearing different clothes again. Why would she change three times in one day? (01:43:05 - 01:47:15)
Continuity mistake: After Ed's real father dies and he arrives at the hospital, his mother is coming down the hallway wearing high-heeled shoes. After she gives Ed a hug she has flat shoes on. (01:30:30)
Continuity mistake: Ed's feet change position between shots when he is sitting in the bathroom on the hamper and talking to Cynthia. The hamper also changes position in the overhead shot. (01:14:20)
Continuity mistake: When Ed and his family are discussing whether or not to do the show, the cap on the 2 liter bottle of Mountain Dew appears and disappears between shots. (00:13:30)
Trivia: Pointless mention, but took me by surprise. About half way through the film, a guy called Shane tries to get Ed to listen to his band's tape. He's played by Christian Kane, who went on to play Lindsay in "Angel". Yeah, minor point, but I'm an Angel fan, so it was interesting to me.Jon Sandys
