Not a patch on the commentary on the original Mummy (1999) film. Seems more labored.

Another good commentary by Sommers and Duscay. They offer such a comfort and a light-heartedness. A lot of fun to listen to.

Not quite up-to-snuff with Stephen and Bob's other commentaries, but still worth a listen to. Rarely is there dead air and, as usual, they fill the runtime with interesting facts about locations, practical vs. CGI effects, funny anecdotes about the actors, pointing out their continuity errors and flubs, etc..

The part(s) I liked most about the commentary was when Stephen and Bob make comments about Roger Ebert's criticisms about the film. "It's just a Mummy movie, Roger!", "Ebert probably didn't like it", "Ebert pointed this mistake out in one of his reviews, but he obviously didn't know that we were aware of it and went for it anyway".


-The Rock only shot for a few days on the film, but during his time he suffered from sun stroke and food poisoning, yet carried on like a trooper.
