Kevin C points me to Rifftrax
. These are audio tracks from the guys who did Mystery Science Theater 3000. You just play the audio track along with the DVD and, presto! No copyright violation.
The jokes are mostly pretty lame, but Kevin has an interesting use for them:
I'm finding them a great resource as a writer, because they point out the holes in screenplays even as your watching them. Stuff I would just gloss over watching it myself becomes painfully obvious when its the butt of a funny quip...
The site has samples, in case you're wondering just how
lame the jokes are, and whether you want to spring for $3.99 worth of commentary, or just put it towards a sixpack to share with a witty friend.
Thanks for the tip, Kevin!
