Kind of a dull track. So much of the information they give has already been said in the retrospective featurette which is much more enjoyable. They talk a lot about their histories before making the film and not as much about the film itself and most of it is not scene specific. They also talk extensively about the casting, though again most of it was also said in the featurette. Listen to it if you really love this movie, otherwise just check out the featurette.

I agree somewhat with the poster above me in that much of what they talke about has been covered in the retrospective, but I still think there's much to enjoy in this commentary, they do cover a lot of different topics and, while some of it may be a little of topic at times they still serve a purpose in explaining the many hurdles and difficulties that arose in the making of the movie.
It's not perfect though, there are a couple of silent passages and the two contributers have a nack for interrupting each other, but it's a passable time with some interesting and amusing stories told by the two friends whose obvious enjoyment of each others company contributes to a relaxed atmosphere.
Favourite bit: during the end credits they talk about their surprise and exaltation when their oscar nominations were announced, sweet.
