If you are worried about looking silly this is not for you - but thats part of the fun!!! If you are super fit and into serious workouts, you would find this too easy. I myself am definately not super fit and don't really exercise much. However at first I wasn't getting hot or out of breath at all but carried on because I was having fun. Then as the video went on I found myself getting quite hot. One or two of the dances are more like stretching and are slow, so I tend to skip them and just do the funiest ones eg. "burn baby burn". I think that anyone could do this no matter how unfit you are, as once there has been one of the faster higher intensity routines, the next one is a slower one so you have time to get your breath back. The dance moves are easy to pick up and there is a section on stomach crunches and a good cool down.
If you are motivated by having a giggle and doing some cheesy moves like "travolta arms" to 70's tunes, then definately get this DVD!!!
I say thank you Richard at last I have found a dvd I really like wont need to waste any more money on any others (Except for yours of course) 11/10
Michele Lee, playing the star, comes over as a cross between (in her early scenes with Patsy Cline) Mae West and (later) Tina Turner, with little of the tenderness, not to mention emotional scars that must have existed (following the tragic childhood abuse at the hands of her father).
The best scene for me is the studio recording of EVERY TIME TWO FOOLS COLLIDE, with Kenny Rogers, but, even here, Ms. Lee makes Kenny sound great, whereas, on the record, Dottie makes him sound ordinary.
For fans of Dottie West, I would say, forget this & stick to your CD's. For non-fans, please don't be put off - there was a whole lot more to the lady than this - ESPECIALLY the voice.
P.S. The recollections of Chet Atkins, Willie Nelson, etc. are good and, personally, I'd have much preferred these, coupled with clips of the real thing.
