Video Review: 'Paula Abdul's Get Up and Dance!' (1995)

MPAA Rating: Unrated

Details Movie Rated: Unrated; Genres: Musical, Sports; With: Paula Abdul

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+
