Review:

While the title might seem like something more likely to be found on one of Letterman's Top 10 Lists ("Future Careers of Movie Has-Beens" or "Reasons to Wear Pajamas in Public"), David Carradine's Tai Chi Workout for Beginners is nothing if not completely serious. Carradine narrates and helps a certified tai chi instructor lead three students through the Chen style, considered by some to be the original style of tai chi. Against an ever-changing (and distracting) nature video backdrop, the 60-minute tape breaks the exercises into sections: "Opening the Gates" loosens and warms major joints; "Specific Health" movements relieve headaches or soothe joints, for instance; "Stillness" harnesses the mind's powers; "Linkage" shows how to combine the moves; and in "Coil & Flow" you see how it's supposed to look once you know what you're doing. It'll take repeated viewings to master this ancient and complicated martial art- -the number one reason to own this video. --Valerie J. Nelson
