"This DVD loses three stars from me for three simple reasons:
ONE - WTF is w/ the blurred out Arsenio Hall (in "Straight Up" taking up the full screen in most cases) and brand-names (in "Forever Your Girl")?! ...Probably not a big deal if you're not used to the vids, but annoying as hell if you're a longtime fan...
TWO - Where is the ENTIRE "Rush Rush" video? ...B/C there's an awesome intro that was cut for whatever stupid reason (the disc is short enough as it is... There ain't no need to cut that out - LOL)
THREE - Probably the most disappointing of all: Where are ALL the vids?!!! I mean, if they were gonna just stick to that particular era of Paula's musical career, then they could've had the decency to throw one of the two versions of "Knocked Out" and "The Way That You Love Me"... Such a rip-off... Not to mention that there are numerous vids after that as well that could've easily been added... LOL... Oh maaan...
So basically, I do advise this if ya love Paula and wanna support her and enjoy what ya can, but... Virgin needs to get off their lazy @$$es and throw a real bone to the starving fans out there..."

"My opinion: very sad. It's disappointing. The DVD features only 6 of Paula's 16 music videos. Coincidentally, the only music videos on the DVD are Paula Abdul's #1 hit singles... in which she only had six.
The DVD had been rescheduled for release multiple times.
After waiting as long as we have for a DVD collection with all of Paula's videos on it, frankly this is a disappointment.
Why not put all 16 videos on DVD?"
Disappointing release of FANTASTIC material

"I have loved Paula Abdul ever since I first heard "Straight Up" on the radio. It was shortly after that I discovered the awesome videos Paula created for her music and which played in unending rotation on MTV. There were two collections of her videos released on VHS in the early 90s but they didn't include all her videos. Paula fans have been desperate to get all of them...too bad it wasn't on this collection either.
Not only is it just the six number one videos but they are edited too. For example, in "Straight Up" Arsenio Hall is blurred out in all his appearances and the Lakers logo on her jacket in "Forever Your Girl" is also blurred out. I realize this may be due to rights issues but you would've thought Keanu Reeves would be blurred out of "Rush, Rush". (Luckily he isn't). And speaking of "Rush, Rush", this mini-movie remake of the James Dean classic 'Rebel Without a Cause' is not the full video. It simply begins with the song, rather than the brief scene at first.
I had the chance to meet Paula Abdul at a Meet-N-Greet in 2004. She was asked about her music videos being released and she said she was aware that someone was going to release a collection without her permission and she wasn't too happy about that. She also said that she viewed her music videos as art and that she would release her own collection that would present them as they should be. Let's hope that this is soon."
Simply not good enough.

"I really enjoyed Paula Abdul's videos back in the peak of her popularity, particularly "Opposites Attract" and "Straight Up", so I figured I'd buy this and be satisfied. Then I popped in the DVD and saw right away that Arsenio Hall was blurred throughout the "Straight Up" video, which was very distracting and a little disappointing. Perhaps it was an issue of rights, but if whoever released this disc thinks that we don't know by now that he was in that video, I feel sorry for them.
Sadly, the highlights of this DVD were "Promise of a New Day" and "Cold Hearted Snake", simply because they seemed to be the only ones untouched or edited.
The lack of "The Way That You Love Me" and "Knocked Out" was disappointing, also. In all, I give it two stars and hope that Paula later releases a collection I'd be content with.
