Although low on actual filming information, this commentary is very funny, especially towards to the end where everyone just tries to outgross each other. Other fact that I loved was that Jonah Hill was constantly amazed at how vulgar Seth Rogen could be. Judd Apatow leaves the commentary about halfway through because Jonah Hill is being a bad influence to poor young Maude, which is a total joke from the whole commentary crew since the only deadtime on the whole commentary happens just before this "incident". A highly recommended track, if only for extra laughs to an already very funny movie. 9/10

It's amazing with this many people that the track is both reasonably coherent and it's easy to identify each speaker. Some people are more dominant than others but it's surprisingly well balanced for a non-stop (other than that obvious pause) stream of conciousness that goes on just under two hours (I figured Rogen would drown everyone out with that laugh of his). I'd like to believe that the whole Judd/Jonah/Maude setup was done to try and see how long Jonah could go without swearing.

Fairly funny, but a waste of time overall. Better move to just watch the movie again. The part with Apatow leaving was funny, though.

This was a very funny track full of very funny people, so I would recommend it for anyone with a sense of humour. If you don't have one, then perhaps a commentary from a humourless robot may be more suiting for you. In that case, I'd recommend the commentary for The Exorcist or something. Or to buy the Monty Python boxset, 6CC's of that could cure anyone of serious-itus.

Motolla, Rogen, Goldberg and Cera offer some funny stories, even if they don't directly deal with the movie. A favorite of mine is how Cera talks about his audition for The Sixth Sense but not knowing it was a horror-drama. Other parts are almost cringe-worthy. Hill gives us a lot of jokes that don't go over well and he has to repeat them (as if no one heard, but really, simply no one thought it was funny).
Producer Judd Apatow, his 9-year-old daughter, director Greg Motolla, and actor Jonah Hill are all recording from New York City while the rest of the gang are recorded in L.A. I never rewatch the first 45 minutes of the commentary because of the awkward chemistry between the NYC participants and staged fight used as an excuse for the Apatows to leave and do publicity on The Colbert Report (Apatow's reason he's in NYC to begin with).
The presence of Judd's daughter and Hill being required not to curse (which shouldn't be that hard for anyone) is what wrecks pretty much the first half of the track.

Not much I can add to the above except to say that I highly, highly recommend this track if you just want a good fun track. I really enjoyed it. I doubt there are many tracks you could watch with a buddy, this one may qualify.

Sort of famous because of the incident of the director storming out because people keep swearing in front of his young child he brought to do the taping.
Before he leaves, it is actually worse. Or at least less funny. But overall, it actually wasn't all that funny or informative. Some parts interesting, but not enough for me to recommend it as something that makes you appreciate the film more.
