Donen and Stone have a great rapport and their good-hearted bickering throughout this commentary is both endearing and amusing. The recollections of these two Hollywood stalwarts on luminaries like Grant and Hepburn are priceless. A great track.

This is a spirited, entertaining conversation between the two men. Stone mentions that he wrote the screenplay with Grant and Hepburn in mind and gave it to Donen, figuring that he could get the stars to do the movie. It is readily apparent that these guys have remained good friends over the years in the way they joke and correct each other over certain anecdotes. They talk very knowledgably about their experiences on the movie and recount all sorts of stories that makes you feel like you are really sitting with these guys over a couple of drinks, watching their movie.

It's a great commentary by some old pros who should know. The bickering gets a bit annoying at times, but still it's very informative and entertaining.
