When I first heard the edited version on Focus on the Family's radio station, I cracked up so much. I loved it and had to own it. I also thought it would be a great, clean and an inspiring DVD for my husband to watch (he is an unbeliever). The DVD started off well with the jokes being funny to me; slightly humorous to my husband. But when he started making jokes about his son's jeans looking like "Snoop Doggy Dog" and saying "yo! yo! yo!" and doing gestures that are commonly seen in the black community, I and especially my husband, became quickly turned off. Just from seeing that I gathered that Jeff Allen probably has had no exposure to black people. The baggy jeans fad started in jail due to belts being taken away from all inmates and ex-cons, not just the black ones. And the "yo, yo, yo" is said by a particular socioeconomic class of black people. I've had black friends that never used yo or are familiar with Snoop Dog. So, this DVD gets a thumbs down from me. Sorry, Jeff. Keep your faith in God.
I bought this DVD because I heard excerpts of it on Family Life Radio. Jeff Allen was saying that he had found himself in a place where he just didn't care any more - about anything. I had just listened to a friend saying the exact same thing. The friend was bothered by this, but didn't know how to get out of that situation. Jeff Allen found a way through this same thing, so I bought the DVD and gave it to the friend. My prayer is that this friend may seek God after listening to Jeff Allen go through the same things and come out on the other side healed and whole.
