Good girl Sandy Olsson (Olivia Newton-John) and greaser Danny Zuko (John Travolta) fell in love over the summer. When they unexpectedly discover they're now in the same high school, will they be able to rekindle their romance?
A musical about teens in love in the 1950s. It's California 1958 and greaser Danny Zuko (John Travolta) and Australian Sandy Olsson (Olivia Newton-John) are in love. They spend time at the beach, and when they go back to school, what neither of them knows is that they both now attend Rydell High. Danny's the leader of the T-Birds, a group of black leather jacket-wearing greasers while Sandy hangs with the Pink Ladies, a group of pink-wearing girls led by Rizzo (Stockard Channing). When they clash at Rydell's first pep rally, Danny isn't the same Danny from the beach. They try to be like each other so they can be together.Written by

"Grease" may be "the word" and the title, but it is never said once in the entire movie. The only time you hear anything close to it, is when you hear the word "greased" in the song "Greased Lightning" (and, of course in the animated opening credits, as well in the closing credits). See more »

I'm going back to Australia; I might never see you again.
Don't... don't talk that way, Sandy.
But it's true! I've just had the best summer of my life, and now I have to go away. It isn't fair.

Danny, don't spoil it!
It's not spoiling it, Sandy, it's only making it better.
Danny... is this the end?
Of course not; it's only the beginning.

UK Alternate (TV) Version: although the movie was rated (in the UK) as a 'PG' and usually received an early-afternoon TV screening (during the early 80's), most of the 'sexual references' featured throughout the movie (edited version) were kept in, mainly because of the cultural differences between the US and the UK. In other words, the terminolgy used by American 'teenagers' differs from their British counterparts. See more »
I personally love this movie, however I have been told that you have to be a big fan of musicals to enjoy it. The music is catchy, the dancing is impressive, and the story line is great.
Sandy and Danny meet in California over summer break and fall in love. Little did they know that they would be attending the same high school when going back to school. Both were surprised and excited to see each other, however they were influenced by there friends at school. It is a question throughout the whole film whether or not Danny and Sandy will be able to regain their love.
