This is the type of commentary I tend to find to be a waste of time. It is a collection of a dozen people's comments from a documentary and interviews, spliced together to overlap the most appropriate scenes. Or randomly to fill in the gaps.

However, one absolutely brilliant moment is by Danny Devito, who really wasn't in the movie that much, and saw it for the first time with Kevin Spacey, also not in the movie as much as the other primary actors, and also seeing it for the first time. They were stunned watching it, as they had no idea of the full story, and couldn't believe how good every part of it was. And when it was over, they turned to each other, and Devito just said "Who knew?"

Note: Watched this on the blu-ray, so this is probably the only commentary we are ever going to see.
