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

The movie is explicitly set in 1961, two years after the first film. During the opening "Back to School" number, basketball players dribble red, white, and blue basketballs. Those tri-colored balls were introduced by the American Basketball Association (ABA), which was founded in fall 1967. See more »


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!

I can't believe people STILL hate this movie...
3 September 2003 | by TerryLSee all my reviews

Take it on it's own merits. Forget the vulgarity of the original Grease. You can sing these songs (even "Reproduction") without embarrassment, something you CAN'T do with the songs from "Grease". This is a fun movie. I saw it I don't know how many times at the theater and took my friends by the herd to see it and they loved it. Maxwell Caufield <sp> was great in the role of the misplaced Englishman and Michelle Pfieffer <sp> was great as the confused Stephanie. I thought that the change of the 'coolness' of the T-Birds and the Pink Ladies was a good reflection of the changing times--not too many people were interested in gangs and codes etc, I guess. Don't try to judge this movie as simply a sequel to "Grease"...it's NOT really a sequel. It's more of a continuation, just in a different atmosphere.
