BTW, Criterion tried to make this dream come true for their very first laserdisc release (and the first ever commentary track) in 1984. Although people including Roger Ebert tried to convince Welles, he refused, as he thought people focused too much on that film and ignored others he had done.

Nice! I might throw in a few more cast members or maybe on a sperate track. Here's my choices:

South Park: BL&U - Drunken Commentary(Matt Stone & Trey Parker)
South Park Season 2 - Commentary on episodes by above.
Office Space - Mike Judge, Stephen Root, & Ron Livingston
Almost any Jim Carrey Movie - Jim Carrey
Big Lebowski - Bridges, Goodman, Buciemi, and Coen Brothers.

South Park - Season 2 and BLU (Stone & Parker, maybe a character commentary as well)
Office Space (Judge, maybe a couple of actors)
Big Lebowski (Coen Bros, Bridges)
Any other Coen Bros film (Coen Bros...doing a serious commentary)
Any Kubrick film (Kubrick, but given that's not possible, I'd love to hear from some film scholars/critics)
Any Hitchcock film (see above, but replace Kubrick with Hitchcock)
Any Spielberg film (Spielberg)

But really, I'd like Ebert to quit his job as a reviewer and become a full-time DVD commentator, as his commentaries on Citizen Kane and Casablanca are two of the best I've ever heard (I have yet to listen to the Dark City track).

For me, I'd think it'd be a hoot and a half to hear a Spike Lee commentary on Birth of a Nation.

I only have one dream commentary, because I only really listen to Simpson commentaries. I'm hoping that Conan O'Brien does commentary for the Season 4 episodes he produced.

Another vote here for a 'Thin Red Line' commentary with director and cast/cameo members commentary.
