Plot
A tongue-in-cheek documentary on Ed featuring interviews with people who knew him and clips from his films.
'Wood'-ness
This movie tries hard to capture the feel of an Ed Wood film, using dialogue from Ed's movies for intros and stock footage whenever possible. For the most part it succeeds and gives a good view of Ed and why people love him. Also features clips of hard to find work by Ed, most importantly, the never produced Beach Blanket Bloodbath.
Best Line
"Eddie was my friend. He was a nice guy. But the booze killed him." - Stephen Apostolof
(I know this one isn't funny, but in a movie that aims for comedy, this is still the line that stands out. -ed.)
