Storyline

Return to rockin' Rydell High for a whole new term! It's 1961, two years after the original Grease gang graduated, and there's a new crop of seniors - and new members of the coolest cliques on campus, the Pink Ladies and T-Birds. Michael Carrington is the new kid in school - but he's been branded a brainiac. Can he fix up an old motorcycle, don a leather jacket, avoid a rumble with the leader of the T-Birds, and win the heart of Pink Lady Stephanie Zinone? He's surely going to try! Written by Anonymous

Goofs

The movie is explicitly set in 1961, two years after the first film. During the opening "Back to School" number, basketball players dribble red, white, and blue basketballs. Those tri-colored balls were introduced by the American Basketball Association (ABA), which was founded in fall 1967. See more »

Quotes

Paulette Rebchuck: [Walking across football field] So, what's the story with you and Johnny?
Stephanie Zinone: Let's just say I outgrew him over the summer.
Paulette Rebchuck: Yeah, well, he sure hasn't lost the hots for you.
Stephanie Zinone: Johnny just hasn't learned when you're dead, lie down. Besides, there's gotta be more to life than just makin' out.
Paulette Rebchuck: Y'know, I never thought of it that way!

Very enjoyable and funny
8 November 1999 | by (PHX,AZ) – See all my reviews

I dont understand why this movie is being slammed so much. The first Grease is a classic and its always impossible to follow a classic with an equal sequel. I happened to enjoy this sequel better than the original. I thought it was funnier and I enjoyed the music in this movie better than the first. Especially the "Reproduction"scene...you can't watch that and not agree that that is one funny part of the movie. I also thought Maxwell Caulfield was GORGEOUS as Michael. I overall give this movie 7/10.
