The Sum Of All Fears is a must rent DVD, but not for the movie. The movie is decent, but the real gem here is the commentary with the director and Tom Clancy. Clancy is a loveable, know-it-all asshole that is just a wonderful foil to the director. Here is how he introduces himself at the beginning of the commentary: “Hi, I’m Tom Clancy, and I wrote the book that they ignored while making this movie.”

Through the whole thing, he lets us in on what parts are “total bullshit,” and how it would happen in real-life. Meanwhile, the director tries to defend his choices and egg on Clancy simultaneously.

Definitely worth a listen.
