This is in Cantonese, but thankfully there are some English subtitles. (Well, there are subtitles in Chinese, English, Korean and Thai, but Iím just using the English ones, soÖ) The track is very enjoyable, always keeping a light tone throughout. The jokes start right from the beginning, with Mr. Chow poking fun at his own companyís logo, wondering if they should change it or not. They keep things rolling, pointing out various crew members with bit parts. Mr. Chow talks about why he chose certain actors like Bruce Leung or why he had certain scenes the way he did. The dancing used for is a character development method, and he uses a lot of angles to show as much of the sets as possible. They keep joking about various things, while asking each other questions. Itís fun throughout and if you like the movie, this is an entertaining listen.

I did not vote on this commentary as I did not finish it, but I would like to note: Sony Pictures Classics ought to take a cue from New Line and their Lord of the Rings commentaries and put a subtitle at the top of the screen that identifies the speaker. Stephen Chow is often recognizable, but the other two actors on the track are harder to distinguish.

Yeah, it was to tell who's who. But I didn't care. They talk how people reacted to the Shining reference, what's CG and what's real, the theme for the movie is rebirth and actors Chow worked with before.

The also talk about how the sound design was done in America and they mention how American food sucks.

They point out stuff in the background that we haven't noticed "There's Butt crack taking a dump."
