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
Jeff Conaway was originally going to have a cameo as the Bowling Alley Manager. The idea was scrapped. See more »
Johnny and Stephanie are trying to paddle the raft when Michael shows up. A few seconds later he jumps the pool on his motorcycle and we can see that now Johnny and Stephanie aren't moving at all, and the water is suddenly completely still. On top of that, a second later one of the motorcycle gang jumps his bike into the pool and it's once again calm. Then his buddy also tries to jump the pool right after him and the water is still somehow flat as a pancake when he hits it. See more »
In my opinion, this movie shouldn't be rated on it's merits as a film. It's simply god-awful - but that being said, you cannot tear yourself away!
The songs themselves are ridiculous, the performances of them even more so but the kitsch value cannot be underestimated. Laugh as Michelle Pfeiffer spins across campus like a deranged duck at the end of "Cool Rider". Chortle as Maxwell Caufield (in an absolutely horrendous sweater) desperately tries to carry a tune. Giggle at all of the players as they attempt to make a serious go of it!
That this is a bad movie & doesn't live up to the original goes without saying. But there is definite entertainment value to be gotten from this disaster and you shouldn't discount that. Tonight...we bowl!
