| One of the best musicals brought to the big screen.
Although it is old, Grease is still loved and watching by adults and children alike. Once you watch Grease you just want to get up and dance! Grease is the story of bad-boy Danny and good-girl Sandy meeting each other over summer break then happen to returning to the same school. There's a great mix of kids, they all are very different and have one thing that separates them very much from each other. There's a great mix of songs too; slow and very fast. Also, the dancing is amazing. The end also blows your mind and just makes you so astonished, but in such a good way. The up-beat fun never stops and makes you want to watch the movie again and again. Grease is a definite must see for everyone!

Goofs

During "Greased Lightning", after switching to the all white shop, the background dancer who hops up onto the shop table at the very back knocks the custom wheel off of its stand. It rolls off and hits a stool. In the next shot, the wheel is back on its stand. In the same scene, the wheel on the stand in front of the second to last table is shown sitting on its stand at the beginning. After a few cuts, a dancer lifts the same wheel back onto its stand from behind the table, then rolls it off instead to put on the car.


Crazy Credits

In the sing-a-long re-release, the Paramount logo from the 1970's is shown at the beginning featuring a blue background.


Alternate Versions

The film originally had a Coca-Cola sign in the diner behind Olivia Newton-John and Lorenzo Lamas as well as several other Coke signs around the diner. Before the film was first released, the Coke painting seen in the diner had to be blurred out due to a deal made with Pepsi and not Coca-Cola, and all home media releases have also had this blur in front of the large painting. However, for the 40th anniversary release, editors digitally constructed Pepsi art over the place where the blur covering the Coke art was, making the cover up much less obvious and jarring.
