Pretty straight forward and mundane without any great insight or revelations. It's not unlistenable or horrible really, it's just boring and uneventful. Kind of like watching a bug crawl across the floor stopping and walking and stopping and then after a while you're resenting the bug for being there because it wasn't doing anything but wasting your time. You probably should just kill it which would be a lot more interesting but it's too easy and you don't want to be that cruel. So you leave it but now you can't stop watching it. That's precisely what this commentary is like.

At least Hoffman didn't use his Capote voice in this. Capote's voice was borderline annoying but Hoffman's imitation was over the top annoying. Great actor they said, maybe but not necessarily in this case. However the movie still works and its a great film.

This commentary is a bit better than the first. It's actually director Bennet Miller and cinematographer Adam Kimmel. The writer was busy at the hospital with his wife who was having a baby.
Apparently these two guys ( Miller and Kimmel ) lived together during the filming and the friendship is evident as the conversation flows better. This one is at least worth a listen.
