You can blame your boss, your wife or even yourself for having to much commitments. But I don't think it's fair to blame the way (methodology, system) you handle those commitments. GTD was designed for doing great things. Not for doing everything.
GTD is a start
On the other hand, I agree GTD needs some revision, or at least there is something missing. The basic rules are alive and kicking and still very true. But especially when I have to translate those basics into everyday life, I keep running into the brick wall of apps and (web)services that don't quite help me across. All products seem to be inspired by the basics. But it takes more than just some basics to actually make it work. I really feel there is something missing. So I see GTD (the book) as a start.
Priorities and reviewing
Whatever way you use to review your projects and actions, I don't think there is a wrong or right way. David Allen's advice is to be properly engaged with your commitments. And what 'properly engaged' looks like is really up to you.
