Really good commentary from everybody, even Seth Rogan whose choppy, stoner laugh can really get annoying,
They talk about every aspect of the movie with stories throughout. Not a technical commentary but really entertaining.

It was not too surprising how good this commentary would be, because the film is obviously so personal for both Apatow and Sandler, and even a bit for Seth Rogan. They talk a lot about the real life events that were the ideas of so many different scenes. And the risky directions they wanted to take the film in. And it is very entertaining because they are making good jokes, and talking about jokes that did not stay in the film. (Several are found in the deleted scenes.) And if you like comedian culture, the stories really are fascinating in many ways.

Also of interest, because I forgot in the commentary review I just left, was that they said towards the end of the commentary that they are recording it just a week and a half before the film comes out. And they hope it does well, but do not like to jinx a film by saying anything too hopeful in the commentary. (It did not do that great, but I doubt they considered the film to be a failure.)
