Each character in the movie is given pretty much equal screen time. They all have their own problems, and are dealing with life in their own way. Instead of becoming a melodramatic soap opera, Burns is able to create, to put it simply, an engaging drama. One that doesn't try to force the tears out of you but pulls you in and gets you to give a shit. The movie also manages to create a sense of caring for its leads, and perfectly handles all their intertwining story arcs. It's not gonna bowl anybody over, but for what it is, it's a great little flick.
As for the actual extras, there's some good stuff, but nothing really spectacular.
Audio Commentary (with writer/director/actor Edward Burns): A very detailed and interesting commentary. Burns explains what it was like working with such a low budget, writing the story, working on the set, etc. A fun and in-depth listen.
Deleted Scenes (10:04): There are 5 scenes, all of which are actually pretty good. They add a little more development to the characters (like with Paulie and his dad), and are fun to watch. Check 'em out.
Blooper Reel (7:21): An amusing collection of mistakes and mess-ups. Pretty much what you'd expect.
Jay Mohr: The Outtakes (3:47): This is sort of a continuation from the "Blooper Reel", except focusing entirely on Jay Mohr messing around in certain takes. Funny.
Behind the Scenes (4:44): This is nothing more than a montage of behind-the-scenes footage played to the music of "Four Cheers" by The Blue Jackets (which the music video for is also included).
Also included is the film's Theatrical Trailer and a Music Video - "Four Cheers" by The Blue Jackets.
