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

Quotes

Paulette Rebchuck: [after Johnny gives her an order] Yeah? Well, you wanna hear my 'final word' Mr Push-everyone-around Nogarelli? You may be able to bully some of the chicks in this school, but this chick has been bullied by one Johnny Nogarelli for the last time. I may not be the classiest chick in this school, but I'm the best you're ever gonna get. So take it or leave it!

A really good movie!
20 August 2001 | by daisyduke8000See all my reviews

I think the reason this movie did so badly, and most people don't like it is because of the constant comparison to the original "Grease." Of course, compared to the original it would come up short. but, try to watch it not as a sequel, but just as a movie in itself, and I think most people would like it more. Granted, it does have it's cheesy moments, such as the "(Love Will) Turn Back The Hands Of Time" number, but it's a nice, sweet movie. I loved it, personally. Rent it, it's lots of fun!
