Although a fan of this movie as well as a fan of Sandler, I found the character commentary to be a little off target. Covert seemed to be the anchor to the commentary's sanity while the characters of Whitey and Eleanor went off in different directions than portrayed in the movie. At times I felt a little snicker, but most of it was just sitting through to listen to Sandler, who only broke character once to hail Jon Lovitz. I really wanted to like this commentary. I found it to be very creative. That Whitey and Eleanor would have their own commentary and that Adam Sandler could actually keep up the voices for an hour and a half. But unlike their characters in the movie they did divulge in the comic relief that Adam Sandler partakes in. Once you've seen the movie about 15 times, throw in the commentary track in the background while you wash dishes. You might get a kick out of it.
Commentary 2: Director Seth Kearsley, art director Philip A. Cruden, head of animation Stephan Franck, effects supervisor John Bermudas, and executive producer Ken Tsumura Rating:9.0/10 (1 vote) [graph]Login to vote or review

I gave this commentary a 3 because weaved in and out is some decent information. Even if I didn't understand it myself, I know that other animators may have. I would've probably given it a higher number rating though, had it not been bogged down by the unending Oscar speech. It seemed that they had to thank anyone and everyone who ever existed. I understand the importance of gratitude. But at the same time I'm listing to a commentary to get info about the movie, not to join in their celebration of a career boost. I really felt that the only way I would understand this commentary and enjoy it fully was if I actually knew these guys personally

While the movie may be pretty bad, the animation for this is absolutely gorgeous, and the team on this commentary is just as enjoyable. Seth, Philip, Stephan, John and Ken are all very nice to listen to, which is more than I can say for much of the film itself.

The animation crew weaves their techniques and stories on the making of this film, and they all sound like great people to hang out with. And even though the team didn't get the career boost they hoped they would from making this, I DO hope that some day all or at least some of these guys will get together for another, better production in the future.
