Labute does most of the talking here, with occasional comments by Pevner, Plotch, and questions from Simon. Eckhart is noticably silent, but more talkative on the actors commentary. The comments include those on editing, photography, color scheme, cut scenes, costume, score, locations/sets, casting, performance, filming problems and reshoots. Sometimes it gets too technical but often the discussion just stops for no reason and resumes. The end is particularly abrupt with no comments at all on the last scene.

The actors do most of the talking here and while they are not always scene-specific, their anecdotes of working on such a low budget film are still entertaining. They discuss edits and cut scenes, and their laughter displays their affection for each other, based on the fact they lived together for the film's production. Stacy Edwards is the most vocal of the actors, and the producer Stephen Pevner also speaks of the reception the film received. There is one odd moment when the commentary fades in and out, but otherwise not many pauses.
