It starts off pretty boring as they munch on their food (hence the “dinner and a commentary” moniker) and offer the occasional banal comment like how one location was so beautiful that they were moved to tears (oh, hipster irony) and that White’s dog was so happy there because it had lots of land to run around in. Another “highpoint” is when they point out the longest scene in the movie. You get the idea. At about 24 minutes in they finally pick up the pace and talk more frequently – too bad it is just more inane comments on this very disappointing track. Avoid at all costs.

I agree that it's a pretty run-of-the-mill commentary track. I have no idea who thought having the guys eat at the outset was in any way clever or interesting (and it's unclear that they did, in fact, actually eat anything at all). That said, Jack Black's enthusiasm for the movie is obvious and makes it a likable, if not particularly rewarding, track.

Listening to these guys talk , you start to wonder why in the hell anybody would pay these guys to do anything at all. It's almost as if they went in and said let's do the worst commentary possible and see if they notice that we're sucking this bad on purpose. Everyone comes off as really annoying and moronic and not even in a funny or cute sort of way. I think you can only be this bad on purpose.
