I must be all Loganed out. This is a pretty bland commentary. There is some good information on the cast, crew and production but a lot of it ass-kissing and telling us how wonderful the film is, as if we couldn't see it. Basinger also speaks at a slow pace. It's never riveting. One can only wonder what Bey Logan (or someone with a similar speech pattern) could do with the information at hand. It is also quite disappointing that this is the only extra concerning the making of the film on the DVD.
