I think this one is great. This is the imfamous "Fuck DVD" commentary that landed K. Smith in some trouble. Missing from the track Is Jason Lee, but it is still a great commentary.

Very funny track! Well worth a listen, I really dig commentaries like these where everyone's just sittin' around a room together.

This commentary is great and definitely one of my favorites. It's also, I think, Kevin Smith's best film. You can really tell these guys are all good friends, and it makes it that much more fun to listen to them. Yes, the only thing that could make this track better would be the addition of the great Jason Lee.

As has been said. This is the infamous 'Fuck DVD' commentery and should go downas one of the first commenteries that i ever listened to (wasnt THE first, but was one of them) and its helped me on the road to listen to as many commenteries as i can (although im nowhere near as big a fan as The Cubist is of chat tracks)
If Kevin Smith is on the commentery. The purchase of the DVD is worth it. Even if the film was terrible (which this one wasnt)

Probably my favourite Smith and Co commentary track, mainly due to the Smith and Affleck self deprecating chemistry. Vincent Pereira and Scott Mosier handle technical info and Bob Hawk gives the studio perspective. Mews as usual is too damn stoned to make any valuable contributions. One of the best commentaries out there, I've listened to it many, many times and it still amuses and fascinates me every time.

Fun track originally done for the laserdisk release hence the tirade at the beginning lol!

Honestly, it is more entertaining than interesting. And it is not as entertaining as some of the other tracks done by Smith. He speaks about the personal points that came up and created this story, but beyond the writing, the making of was rather ordinary.

And yes, it does start off with Fuck DVDs, which I definitely stood behind when he said it, as any hardcore commentary fan will tell you, for the first 3 or 4 years DVD was being pushed, almost every laserdisc was better than almost every DVD.
