The PCU jeremy piven commentary...

I was surprised to find not just one, but 2 separate commentaries.

the first one by the director, hart bochner (who comes off like he did as an actor... a jerk)

But more interestingly....

The one by jeremy piven.

He has nothing important to say, really, and tends to repeat himself over and over (sometimes to near hysterical levels--especially the thing about how he wasn't allowed to improvise. He repeats it at least 10 times!)
But... he's brutually honest and real. He's funny and smart-alecky, and never afraid to say it like he sees it.

For an actor commentary, this one gets a big

Man I just wish I could FIND this dvd. When I get paid I'll just order it online I guess, but this was one of my most anticipated dvd to date and I can't believe no one around here has it yet.

At Best Buy in Dallas today, I had to ask if they had even ordered any, and they had a box of 25 sitting unopened in the back. They "hadn't gotten around to putting them out yet".


Grrr......

that's what I was thinking, but it turns out thats actually the name of the movie for once. http://imdb.com/title/tt0110759/

I like Jeremy Piven too. He's been in a billion big budget movies even though he never gets to be the leading man and he has to audition for every role.

there was an interview with him in one of the men's mags(stuff, maxim or FHM) asking him about always playing the sidekick. He said he is working out and buffing up so he can get some leads, along with leading ladies.

I thought he was great in the TV series "Cupid". I almost bought Very Bad Things, but the reviews were pretty bad, and I didn't think I wanted to see a drunk Piven accidentally killing a hooker.

Piven Rules! Remember the episode of Seinfeld where they were auditioning characters? Piven's George was hilarious!

Also, PCU is one of the 2 for $15 DVDs at Best Buy tomorrow.
Edit: Sorry just realized people mentioned that already.

I'll definately be picking this up with that Best Buy sale! I loved this movie and this seems like a commentary I'll actually listen to.
