You didn't say what you are using
No version of Adobe Reader can comment/review enable a PDF file.

To accomplish what you want obtain the appropriate Acrobat release to open the file and enable comment/review with Reader.

Appropriate Acrobat releases are:
Acrobat 7 Professional
Acrobat 3D Version 7
Acrobat 8 Professional
Acrobat 3D Version 8
Acrobat 9 Standard
Acrobat 9 Professional
Acrobat 9 Pro Extended

If you have the proper program, have a look at these

That is my understanding
I cannot tell you for sure because of lack of experience

All of your options to comment or make markups on the document will be inactive if the document restrictions and security have been set to prevent this. You can check the document's restrictions by following these steps (you must have Acrobat Pro in order to be able to do any edits, remember):

With the document open, pull down the Document menu, choose Security, then Display Restrictions and Security. This will give you a summary of what you are able to do with the document (copy/paste, print, edit, etc.) If commenting is not allowed, it will be noted.
