Quickie DVD Review: "The Best of Mark Lowry and Bill Gaither: Volume One"

Rated: Not Rated
Starring: Mark Lowry and Bill Gaither
Released: May 4, 2004
Synopsis: For years, Bill Gaither has played straight man to comedian/singer Mark Lowry's crazy, hyper antics.  Now, you can see some of their greatest hits alongside Bill and Mark's account of how the entire act came to be! Whether Mark is sporting a Ricky Williams hairdo, handing out zany Christmas presents to the Homecoming Friends, or belting out his much-loved song "Mary, Did You Know?", this collection features him and Bill Gaither at their best!

My Review: I like Mark Lowry's comedy; I identify with him because he has a psychological condition as I do, albeit a different one (ADHD in his case, mild autism in mine).  While this DVD features some of the best moments he and Bill Gaither had on the Homecoming videos, most fans of the series have likely seen all this already, and probably own the videos from which they came.  Though the interview clips are nice, those alone don't make it worth purchasing.  Unless you find this super cheap at a garage sale, I can only suggest borrowing this from the library, your church, or a friend.

Content Concerns: Some people may have a problem with Mark Lowry's comedy, but, if you've seen the Gaither Homecoming videos before, you know what to expect.

Score: 2.5/5
