One of my favorites!
I didn't get to see Grease (I) in the theaters. My parents argued with the issue, but I watched it on the "Star Channel" which became the Movie Channel later. I immediately identified with Sandy--not just because of the accent, but because of the good-girl longing to break out role.

Grease 2 came out, and I HAD to see it. Mom had gotten me all the soundtrack songs from the first from the radio (the old tape-recorder and setting it alongside the radio, and I taped the 2nd movie's soundtrack the same way off the television. I fell in love with Michael--he began to haunt my dreams. As Cool Rider, he was so gorgeous, all that leather, and perfect. Stephanie was a perfect compliment to him. (Doesn't help much that I like Catwoman?) I also liked Adrian Zmed. I watched Bachelor Party tonight. I didn't realize that Jay O'Neil was he! It was when he same "...Demon..." that it brought back the memories of Grease. The man sang great. Wonder why he didn't go into the business?

There was something about being in jr. high when this movie was out that added to the flavour of my perception (like Catsup). I would have given anything for a Pink Ladies' reversible jacket. (Another neat touch--I didn't know they reversed to black!)

This was a wonderful comedy, as well as a great commentary about school-life in general. And yes, I own a copy. When I saw it at Giant Eagle last year, I had to grab it before it disappeared. To me, it's that good.

(I do admit that I've long been bothered though about Michael playing at the talent show after the jump though....)

8 out of 10 stars!
