A 'so-so' documentary that doesn't really hit the spot.
Inasmuch as GREASE was one of the most famous modern day musicals, VH1's had the material to produce a far better documentary than this.
'Behind The Music: Grease' is actually an updated version of their 1998 show, 'Where Are They Now?', with the only difference being the music from the movie takes precident over the actors tales of what happened behind the scenes.
You can't fault the content of this programme, but it's definitely aimed at those unfamiliar with the movie. Even so, as a fan of the movie AND the VH1 series, this documentary is a rather weak instalment.
Even the cast's recollections are rather boring. I mean, how many more times do we need to be informed the producers wanted Jeff Conway to play Danny Zucko (John Travolta's character in the movie)?
'Behind The Music: Grease' may be a mediocre documentary, still, it's nothing less than you'd expect from a DVD 'extra' (where this feature will no doubt appear one day).
<NOTE>> The UK version has a longer running time since the soundtrack album and singles taken from it had more chart success in Britain than in America.
