this commentary doesn't really delve into characters beyond what's grasped on a regular viewing, however, I don't know that that's a bad thing. The movie is there for everyone to watch, the commentary has little else than shooting anecdotes, at one point director and actor are both describing the action as is seen on screen "this is the part when she walks out of the house, this if the scene when she cries". pretty dreadful.

...and if you think the director's commentary is below average wait until you hear sigourney's. I was incredibly disapointed in listening to this, the only commentary sigourney weaver has ever recorded, because it's just plain embarassing. she speaks in fragments and goes quiet for very long periods of time (leaving you to relive the dreadful experience of watching this movie), does little else than praise how beautiful and good actors them all were and that's.about.it. she offers no more insight into the film than what the average viewer might be able to garner and talks as if she had never acted in a good movie or read a good script before, which is alarming because this is by far one of the worst movie she's ever been involved in. Amy Hackerling's 'Vamps' has a lot more depth of character and showcases her skills better than this phony and pretentious piece of garbage. this is painful for me to say because I bought this dvd solely because of her commentary and those are $3 I will never get back and goddamit aaaaaaarrrrrghhhh!!! there's one revelatory contribution she makes, that the two clever lines of dialogue were actually improvised by the actors, which confirms how untalented Harris is as a writer and leads you to seriously question how this 23 year old even got the chance to film his script and direct Sigourney in it. here's a hint: he's one of Bryan Singer's prótegés. okay that wasn't a hint as much as an acusation but you catch my drift. avoid at all costs.
