Thanks, Randy.

That's a good point, but I think there's a significant difference in intent. A MST3K commentary is done for the express purpose of mocking the film and making the viewer laugh. A review is done for...

I don't have kids, but I've read quite a bit about reading to kids. (Now that sounds like a pretty self-referencial sentence...) Anyway, one thing that's usually suggested is that parents read aloud...
