this commentary is perfectly on par with this tone-deaf comedy about a lottery scam gone wrong. I came to this sincerely hoping to hear some sort of an excuse for all the bad decisions made in Lucky Numbers - which she's acknowledged in the past. She offers none, in fact, you'd think she's watching an entirely different movie and has not read the reviews. she calls the central plot "shakespearean" at one point. she keeps pointing out how all the people involved know comedy so well this could have gone wrong with a different crew and cast.

there is simply no reason to listen to this, she chose the project (not her own script mind you) so she could film the line "fuck me, no fried clams?". that should tell you a thing or two.
I rated it 4 because there's no dead air and she comments on the film throughly but considering her other commentaries, this one seems a bit off - without the usual food banter or her own motivations for the film.
