We gave it a B+

Paula Abdul is as endearingly bubbly as ever bouncing through this aerobic dance tape. Though the singer seems a bit awkward at first — repeatedly chirping ”How’re we doing?” — her experience as choreographer for the L.A. Laker Girls and Janet Jackson serves her well. Abdul leads her eclectic group of ”every day people” through the complicated routine with a steady hand. And while the fancy arm pumps and funky moves may appear daunting, they turn out to be great fun. By the end, Abdul had convinced even me — a left-footed would-be work out queen — that I could star in her next video. B+
