Haven't listened to the commentary, the trailer is average, and that's all for extras. The picture and sound are adequete. A typical Paramount release.

Even though this was theatrically released in mono, I'm disappointed. The soundtrack should've been stereo at least.

Re: mono, Paramount did the same thing with their recent release of Children of a Lesser God. The least they could do is make it a good mono track.

I would recommend it. Yes, they should have done it in Stereo or a remixed 5.1, but the picture quality is pretty good, one or two spots of "haze", but overall good. Commentary is pretty good as well.

The ending was parodied in The Simpsons, so that means it must be a pretty important film.
