“Why its Greased Lightning”

published 03/01/2017

ProGreat songs. Easy to follow

ConsActors too old to play high school students

As a teenager I had two favourite films that I watched many times and one of them was Grease. I was recently discussing films of our youth with my husband when my 14 year old stepdaughter told me she had never saw Grease. The next time it was on TV we watched it. This is a film only review...

About the film Grease was released in 1978 and was based on the musical by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey. The film is rated PG because of minor bad language, violence and some sexual references and is 110 minutes long. Grease had a budget of $6 million but went on to make nearly $400 million...

Before I start this review I will let you know now that I love this film and have loved it since I first saw it when I was just a child. I saw the DVD on sale at £5 and had to buy it as I remembered the fun I used to have singing along to my record (yes record) of the soundtrack of the film. I...

Grease came out in 1978, the year I turned nine. My Mum took me to see it at the cinema, and I enjoyed it so much, that I dragged her back for a second time. Little did I know, that nearly twenty-five years later, it would still be a hugely popular film, and one of my won children's favourite...

Grease celebrates it's silver anniversary this year. Believe it or not, the film was released in 1978, when I was the same age as my daughter is now, and as it is such a special anniversary, there has been a recent surge in attention and coverage of the film and the cast. It has lost none of it's...

I swear that’s what I thought the lyrics to “Look At Me I’m Sandra Dee” went like when I was a kid!! Likewise, when John Travolta sang about Greased Lightning being “A real pussy wagon”, I thought he wanted to keep cats in it! But that’s one of the...

Grease is the epitome of everything young teenagers want to be: slick, cool, fast and gorgeous. As a film it just cannot date, as more and more people are converted to follow the lives of Danny, Sandy, Rizzo and the gang. I first saw this film when I was about three (my older sisters played the...

Product Information : Grease (DVD)

Manufacturer's product description

This film adaptation of GREASE is the zippy smash hit translation from the Broadway musical tribute to the fabulous 1950s. As a new school year begins, wholesome Australian exchange student Sandy (pop star Olivia Newton-John) and duck-tailed, leather-jacketed Danny (John Travolta) parlay their summertime romance into an on-and-off attraction that may or may not cross clique lines. Sandy seriously cramps Danny's style, so he dumps her. In response, Sandy begins dating a wholesome athlete, but, as a hedge, she also joins the gum-chewin', tough-talkin' clique known as the Pink Ladies. One of the most beloved musicals of all time, the popular soundtrack includes 'You're the One that I Want,' 'Hopelessly Devoted to You,' 'Sandy,' 'Summer Nights,' and the title tune.<BR><BR><BR>GREASE was a phenomenon when it was released in 1978, taking the box office by storm and the soundtrack album topped the charts. John Travolta—who had broken free from supporting roles in the previous year's SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER—cemented his reputation as one of Hollywood's most bankable stars and Olivia Newton-John's recording career benefitted immeasurably from the success of the film, but GREASE's appeal has yet to wane, as it has been loved by every successive generation in the decades that have passed since.

Professional Reviews

Review: Clunky kitsch quality that makes GREASE such a perpetual joy (Empire, 2008-07-24)<br><br>Its sensibility is not tied to the past but to a free-wheeling, well informed, high-spirited present (New York Times, 2008-07-24)<br><br>GREASE has got it, from the outstanding animated titles of John Wilson all the way through the rousing finale as John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John ride off into teenage happiness (Variety, 2008-07-24)<br><br>
