First off - big 'Respek' to Sacha Baron Cohen and Martin Freeman for doing the whole commentary in character. Clearly they have these characters down perfectly.

Secondly - as mentioned above, this is all in character (like Bruce Campbell as Elvis in the Bubba Ho-Tep commentary) So if you don't dig Ali G and you don't dig the film then you are not gonna dig the commentary.

Personally I found it damn funny. Cohen and Freeman play off each other just as they do in the film. Lot's of ribbing and childish insults. One weird thing, there is probably more swearing in the commentary than there is in the film itself.

My favorite points are Ali G and Ricky C trying to spot various 'fit birds' throughout the film and Ali G accusing Ricky C of fiddling with his cock and balls whenever a fit bird is on screen.

A great addition to a great film. But I still wish someone would do serious tracks for Sacha Baron Cohen' films. I would love to hear how it was all accomplished, especially the later films like Borat.

I hate character commentaries. They're pointless. If Sacha and the director did a proper commentary, that would've been nice. If you're looking for proper behind the scenes info, look else where.
