Ugh, who the hell thought a commentary by kids was such a good idea? They haven't even seen the film. Kirk desperately tries to get the kids talking, but instead we have one kid who keeps wanting to go to the toilet, one who keeps eating crisps and one who wants to stop doing the commentary because he thinks it's boring.

Why didn't Kirk join in the other track or do one on his own?

This is more like it. Despite a tad too much jokey misinformation, they do talk about the technical side of things, differences between the book and film, working with child actors, comic timing and special effects.

They realize that in the final act, they have forgotten to introduce themselves at the beginning!

Emma admits that she's into fart humour and that she was jealous of Kelly McDonald looking gorgeous and both admit that they get teary at the end.

A good track. Just avoid the first and go to this one. Emma ends the commentary by saying "I must have a sherry this instant!"

Indeed another hilarious commentary by Emma Thompson. She's hilarious 100% of the time and informative as well, maybe not as much as she usually is, regarding the writing and acting. A lot of this commentary is dedicated to remind the viewer the process of writing the script and getting the movie made, which took over a decade and went through infinite story changes with an original script of 190 pages.
She's very entertaining and a very intelligent woman. Look out for the comments on Mrs. Blatherwick (Imelda Staunton)and her comparison to Mrs. Brown.
