It's not really something I hear discussed a lot, but I at least enjoy listening to a lot of the commentary tracks on my DVDs. Anyone else?

I don't really have a single favorite; Kevin Smith always has a fun commentary track on all his DVDs, and the Apatow flicks are usually good for a good laugh.

On the more technical side of things, the Star Wars Trilogy DVD set's commentary tracks are really informative and entertaining.

If you're a commentary fan, what are some favorites?

Sky Dog's dreams have been shattered....

But on topic the commentary on super troopers, specifically the scene where they chug the syrup, is hilarious.

Those guys are funny mofos.

Family Guy DVDs have funny commentary

I think I've only listened to the commentary on one full length movie...I'm trying to remember what it was. I think it was Saving Silverman.

turn on the audio commentaries for the visually impared on V for vendetta.

awful film in my opinion but with a quirky narration using a very strange (almost clockwork orange like) vocabulary it becomes amusing enough to watch =D

Kevin Smith is just a funny guy in general. His live Q&As are so worth the price of admission. Plus if you won't ever meet a more humble dude.

Yeah, all the Kevin Smith movies have hilarious commentaries. The Clerks X edition and Mallrats the most.

Joss Whedon also does great commentaries

director commentary for walle is pretty good... the time and dedication the pixar team put into their movies is unbelievable..

i also learned that the guy who led the sound effects team was the guy who did the sound effects for the original start wars, and the lasers from blasters and tie fighters and whatnot were made by stretching out a slinky and tapping one side while recording it.

the more you know...

i dont watch commentary often though, walle was probably the first one i watched from beginning to end.
