Quickie DVD Review: "The Seven Decisions"

Rated: Not Rated
Starring: Andy Andrews
Released: December 27, 2005
Synopsis: Andy Andrews, author of best-selling books such as The Traveler's Gift, shares seven decisions one must make for personal success.  Drawing from history as well as his own life, and with a touch of humor, Mr. Andrews gives a lively stage performance that will likely both entertain and inform all viewers.

Review: The back cover of this DVD says that Andy Andrews has become quite influential in recent years; after watching this, it's not hard to see why.  Though solo stage performances aren't usually my thing, this is really well-done.  The special features include some extra stage sessions with Mr. Andrews, including an audience Q&A and his insanely funny account of flying a jet.  Unfortunately, the one low spot is the bonus CD, which is supposed to be Mr. Andrews going over the Seven Decisions, but has him reading too fast and repeating himself.  If you do decide to listen to the bonus audio disc, I would suggest copying it to your computer and using the half-speed function on your iPod or Windows Media Player to slow it down.

Content Concerns: Nothing worse than two misuse's of God's name and an occasional female audience member wearing a slightly low-cut or off-the-shoulder outfit.  However, some of the concepts may go over young kids' heads.

Score: 4.25/5
