Jeff is on fire in this track as he sits with Kevin Smith, in showing interesting details that are both funny and informative on how this flick was made. When it reaches the 50 minute mark, it gets even better, as they show interesting details of growing up in New Jersey and tales from their high school experiances as well.

Mr. Anderson made good on his first screenplay/directorial debut...but he didn't make The Matrix! Just kidding. Yes Jeff did great,the movie holds up,tool time tool girl in bikini:),and a fantastic commentary,a nice Q&A as well on the dvd. p.s.-kevin smith hooks up with his actual wife in a cameo(props to Mrs. Jennifer Schwalbach-Smith)!

Agree with the above commentators. This track recalls the great Carpenter and Kurt Russell pairings. Two old friends who devote much of the track to their history, including New Jersey bars, Junior High teachers (including a hilarious bit about Mr. Anderson holding "People's Court"), and the stark difference between L.A. and their hometown.
All of this conversation does not come at the expense of the action on-screen. Ample time devoted to casting decisions, low-budget film-making, and their experiences after the films' release. Very enjoyable, with Zero "dead air." Personal, and informative. 9/10
