It seems like Rogers does not want to be doing this. Most of the commentary he just talks you through the story, as though you were blind or just listening without the video, as in: '..and now nadia shows up..' etc. We learn very little about the making of the film and almost nothing that can't be had from the other commentaries. This is a waste of time.

Herz talks about his writing process a lot and he comes across as a cool, down-to-earth, unpretentious guy. The commentary offers much more than just "He/she was a trooper. They all did a great job."

Suvari was useless as she was BARELY in the movie at all! But still a good piece.

I love that commentary. Just a great addition to the movie. Fun, energetic, and with three actors who are clearly not just friends on the screen, but friends in real life as well. They're enjoying themselves and there's no question - the enjoyed working on "AP2"(which is in my opinion the best "American Pie" movie).

I love Mena Suvari's self-deprecating humor and Jason Biggs's laidback, everyday-dude behavior. Thomas Ian Nicholas is pretty much like his character - the quiet guy. On the commentary all of them provide humorous on-set stories, they talk locations and sets, share some thoughts about the other actors, Biggs and Nicholas prove that they know a thing or two about camera work, and last but not least they are not afraid to make fun of themselves.

At a certain point during the commentary Biggs says that they need a filmmaker with them to provide more specific details, but I have to say, even on their own these guys are very informative.

There is some dead air, because the commentary is recorded for the theatrical version, but it's presented with the unrated version as well (the one I saw on DVD). But it's just a few very short scenes, so actually it's not a big deal.

In the end I'll say this: if you love "AP2" as much as I do you gonna dig this commentary. For sure. A feel-good track for the ultimate feel-good movie.

Eddie Kaye Thomas is the best. He was even funny in the bits he was not in.
