Real Life (1979).

Directed by Albert Brooks. Weirdly predicts the reality show phenomenon of 20 years later. I guess if this were made NOW it would be parody and not satire. This was most likely inspired by An American Family (which I never saw gosh darn it), the PBS program featuring the Louds of Santa Barbara, and which revealed (what would be ho hum drama now) things like their son coming out as gay. This is worth a watch.

This trailer predicts the return of the “3D absolutely everything” trend we have now.
