i agree with the 6 vote this commentary has been given. everyone involved chimes in during the track and obviously they enjoyed working together. laughing and joke telling ensue, the problem is that you dont really find out anything when its all said and done.

you get a few tidbits here and there, but mostly back slapping and glad handing. thankfully the compliments arent overdone.

I can't give it even that high a rating! Sure everyone chimes in, but very seldom with anything worth opening their mouth about. When I realized that several of the castmembers where participating I got my hopes up, figuring they should have plenty to contribute with, especially since they've done a couple of these films together (not all of them, but several). But, as I've learned from previous experiences, more people often makes for lousier commentaries. The track is plagued by long gaps of silence all the way through and when someone does talk you just wish for the silence to return, like the endless comments about Beverly D'angelos hair. Pointless.

Maybe if I listened to it during the Holidays I'd be more forgiving, but as it is I'm amazed I sat through the whole thing and I urge everyone else to not repeat my mistake.
