The track is nice, but itís pretty much an extension of the movie. They do talk about how things are done like how they got Mrs. Altringer and how they got some of the interviewees they have. Most of it, though, is commenting on whatís happening on screen by providing what they think, as opposed to what the interviewee things, though the thoughts end up being the same. Mr. McWeeny acts as a kind of interviewers and asks interesting questions like, did they know they were going to get an NC-17 rating, and other nice questions. Mr. Dick answers everything and is quite honest. They spend lots of time telling you how absurd the MPAA is, and how it can be fixed. He also talks about why he left the scene where Mrs. Altringer talks about her girlfriend/life partner, and though it makes sense, I still think itís a small tangent that takes away some of the focus. The group also reiterates some points of the movie. All in all, itís a lively and very informative track. Itís an entertaining listen.

The above review hits it perfectly. It is really mostly just an extension of the film itself. It is almost like each scene simply has more to bring up and discuss, that works in a commentary format when it might not have during the film.
Sometimes even if it is just more shock that they got away with something, or that someone was willing to talk to them.
