Jon Favreau, Vince Vaughn, and Co-Producer Peter Billingsley sit together for an engaging, informative track. Topics covered include the challenges of working within a limited budget while shooting on location, casting, cuts they made and the reasons for those cuts, motivation of the characters, and what scenes were ad-libbed. Vaughn and Favreau are very energetic and their friendship is very obvious to spot based on the way they relate to one another. Peter Billingsley offers little, and when he does his voice is very low and muffled. But Vaughn and Favreau are the stars of the commentary track here. They make use of a "Madden style" tracer throughout the track, which is more gimmicky than informative. Highlights that I remember include plaing tic-tac-toe, and counting all the F-bombs during the scene in Harlem when the pair waits for Ruiz. This is one of the most enjoyable tracks I've listened to, and strikes the perfect balance between entertaining and informative.
