For the most part, I enjoyed this addition to the DVD. But I can't believe Cary Guffey (among others) would have so many memories. For instance, Mr. Guffey's memory (and Ms. Dillon's as well) of the "kitchen going crazy scene" lead one to believe the kitchen effects were performed in real time while Guffey and Dillon did their part. To achieve the scene as described, it would have to be captured by multiple cameras, but watching the scene, one can tell that different portions of the kitchen were probably filmed at different times. "The knives" that Dillon worrried would hit "the baby" were likely filmed at a different time, and the actors weren't even present. Of course, actors aren't always known for their memory of shooting. . .I can't remember some of my theatre work (as a musical director) from 10 years ago, let alone 25. If these fanciful memories are entertaining to the average "non-show-biz" person, then I guess they serve a purpose.
The technical descriptions and such, though, are quite entertaining.
