There are tons! You could do a search on youtube and find lots of great moves by personal trainers.
I do a video called Ab Attack put on by Crunch and it really works. I've never felt the burn like I do with that video.

I'm currently working on getting rid of my belly fat and I'm doing that with cardio and that Power 90 Abs Workout - you can find it on Youtube. He has you do like 100 crunches (various) in like 5 minutes if not less and I LOVE it. I do about three sets a night.

Jillian Michaels said that a combo of cardio and ab workouts helps to get rid of fat in your belly area and that crunches and ab strengthing workouts will not work alone.

You need to burn the fat off your abs, just doing abdominal exercises won't approve the appearance of your belly area as long as you have fat there. Doing ab exercises also doesn't burn fat from that area. What it will do is strengthen your muscles in that area which is important in general.

Nelie beat me to it!

If by "work" you mean "remove belly fat", then there's no one exercise that will do that, because you can't spot lose fat.

The only thing that will help you lose belly fat is cardio and diet.

Now, you can work the abs, back, and core muscles so that as you lose the fat, your belly looks flatter and trimmer - and all the old standbys are good for that. Crunches. Planks. Any core work ... will help build those muscles to show off as the fat goes away.
