A very technical track for a very silly film. Still, at least it's better than hearing people go "I love this bit" and "Oh, this bit i funny."

They talks about influences, mostly "In Like Flint", designing Dr Evil's liar and how bad guys don't normally have hand rails over lava pits.

They explain that it was Verne Troyer's idea to beat Austin up. McCullers explains about writing this movie and how he came up with the idea of Dr Evil's rocket. Which is Mike's favourite part of the film.

Mike explains that he was really naked in the opening but he was wearing a sock. He also talks about the nightmare that is the fat suit and how difficult it was pee in the thing and how he had to call his wife to help him.

They talk about visual gags and Mike jokes that some of the test scores were low because blind people saw the movie. McCullers asks "You don't think blind people should see movies and Mike replies "Well, I think movies are for everyone." Well, there's audio descriptions.

They end the commentary five minutes before it ends which was strange.
