Just dreadful
7 January 2000 | by NeelyOSee all my reviews

Allan Carr -- who gave the world both "Grease" movies and "Can't Stop the Music" -- trampled the wonderful 1960 original with this greasy remake, featuring over-the-hill ingenues, a lamely smutty script and just generally poor taste in every possible category.

Worth watching as a jaw-dropping example of Reagan-era crassness, perhaps, but that's about it.
