Very good and informative commentary by Director and sister and uncredited script doctor Delia Ephron. Both women are very entertaining and they share very valuable information on the writing of the script. They talk a lot about how the actors improvised a lot and it was all added into the screipt and they separate what each writer brought, which was very ilustrative of the screenwriting process. I love watching Nora Ephron's commentaries because it feels like you're sitting down with her and chatting about her film and she shares an enormous number of stories and references not only on the making and production of the film but before that, on stuff, books, films, stories and "little essays" that inspired her to do the things she did. All of her commentaries are like master classes for screenwriting and filmaking, specially ilustrative of the movie making process, commenting on absolutely everything, music, sets, characters, acting, the weather, the little details that no one ever notice, recurring themes and motivations.

Fantastic and a MUST HEAR
