I enjoyed this commentary, though it wasn't the most informative one I've ever listened to. It starts out with Richard Curtis, Bill Nighy, and Thomas Sangster (Hugh Grant is late...caught in traffic). Once he does arrive, he proceeds to take a telephone call...but all is forgiven as he definitely adds laughter to the commentary. Basically, Richard Curtis throws out a few little bits of trivia but mainly just his own opinion on such things as his favorite shot of the movie and how hard some scenes were. Bill Nighy basically just groans everytime he comes on screen and gawks at the women, as does Hugh Grant. They have a very self-depricating way of talking about themselves. One thing I found amusing is how awful Hugh Grant was towards Colin Firth (who wasn't there to argue back). It's obvious the two are great friends, having worked together on numerous occasions. Thomas Sangster doesn't really say much throughout. Overall, an enjoyable commentary, but again, not too informative. Worth the watch!

This was a great commentary, I enjoyed it very much. I think it was great that they included so many cast members, including the boy who played Liam Neeson's son. Everyone has quite funny things to say, and it's really a great addition onto this film. Highly recommended.

I hated this track. All they do is watch the film, Bill and Tom haven't seen it. They just laugh at the funny scenes and just say every actor and actress is great to work with.
They make fun of Colin Firth a lot.
It's just not a very memorable track.
