I couldn't complete the warm up in the beginning, either. It wasn't until a few work outs in that I could make it through the warm up. Now I am back at not being able to complete it for month 2, but I'm hoping I will be able to soon.
It's definitely a program where you need to take breaks & each time strive for just a wee bit better. Even Shaun T (the lead guy in the workout) said on youtube that he still can't get through one of the workouts without a break.
I had been wondering about Insanity too and on Amazon.com I found a DVD called Insanity: Sanity Check an Introduction to Insanity. I've only done it once, its intense & I had to modify but I liked it. They recommend using it for a few weeks before tackling the full Insanity program. I think it was like $20 but that's better than dropped the $100+ on the full program without being sure you can commit to it.

I know friends of mine who have tried it and couldn't complete the warm up, and they're in pretty good shape. I certainly wouldn't try to do as many reps as they do on the DVD if it's pushing it, at least when you get started. I might try it when I reach my goal weight. I have P90X, but I can't find a pull up bar that fits in my door so it isn't very successful for me.

I'm 2 days into month 2 of Insanity. I enjoy it. It's really, really REALLY difficult for me but that's one of the reasons why I do enjoy it. I did find that month 1 started to get a little repetitive (especially the warm up) but I didn't really feel that until the last week of it, so hopefully it will be the same for month 2. Once I'm that far, it's OK if it's feeling repetitive.
If you want to do it I say do it. I don't think you really know until you give it a go.
