The commentary with Jeremy Piven is worth listening to, simply because it's one of the few commentaries you'll ever hear where an actor tells the TRUTH! He constantly talks about how he resented the fact that the director wouldn't let any of the actors improvise. The director's commentary is cool. He mentions that he had to clean up a lot of the film in order to receive a PG-13 rating.

One of my all time favorite movies, only for the reason that it brings back memories of my youth and is just pure fun. One of those movies where you throw around lines of dialogue with your friends for years..
Anyway the commentary is a little boring, its just Piven basically complaining how the director was a real dictator.

The story was that Piven improvised his audition which got him the part. They loved him and he was proud that his skills on the spot got him the job. However he was forced to stick to the script word for word, which pissed him off. He was only allowed to improv one scene; the WAAAAKE UPPP scene where he harasses his former roomate (played by David Spade)
Piven felt that this was the most brilliant scene in the movie and spends the entire movie wondering how much better it would have been if he was allowed more freedom the whole time.

Basically, the entire commentary is just that... Piven complaining about not being able to improv.
