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

Trivia

Both Grease and Grease 2 are about the class conflict between stodgy upper-middle class characters and the more "authentic" and rebellious blue collar Greasers. Both Sandy and Michael represent the upper middle class that these movies are trying to satirize; the Greasers like Stephanie and Danny represent the rebellious blue collar people who are challenging this upper class. Both Sandy and Michael come around and leave their cushy privileged stations in life and join the more authentic and exciting underclasses, represented by the Greasers. In a sense this is what the show producers want everyone, all the audiences watching, to do. See more »

Goofs

Alternate Versions

In the film, after Stephanie wins the contest, it goes on to show the steakout in the final scene. Originally, there were a few minutes dedicated to a scene in which Micheal(believed to be dead in his alter ego, by Stephanie) comes out on stage as Stephanie is exiting the stage, unbeknowst to her that he is the cool rider and he is alive. He attempts to ask her what's wrong and she storms past him and runs off crying, then it cuts to the stakeout. See more »

Great film!
13 August 2002 | by Lozbee2000See all my reviews

This film to me is not that bad, most the people who have seen it compare it to the original. What I reckon is that if this was just a film and not a sequel to Grease it would probably be appreciated more.

In my opinion I like Grease 2 better, I actually found Grease to be quite boring, but hey that's just me. In Grease 2 I like the songs better and the guys are much more better looking than the first one.

Overall this movie for me is quite entertaining and I like it, and I certainly do not compare it to the first one as it is a whole new different movie and storyline.

So if you haven't seen Grease 2 before because people say it's crap and that it's a waste of time, at least give it a chance and watch it, it might surprise you.
