Trivia

When Stan Weaver said that the school would be on National Band Stand Principal McGee says "I hope it doesn't rain ." is a reference to the original Grease where Sandy sing the song Its Raining on Prom Night. See more »

Goofs

Although the set designers went through a great effort to disguise at least one camera as a period-appropriate one in the National Bandstand scenes, a modern-day "handheld"-type camera on a tripod and operator dressed in period-inappropriate clothes is frequently visible in the back of the gym throughout the scenes.

Nice to see a feeble attempt.
31 January 2016 | by rick_dustinSee all my reviews

I enjoyed it but the hype pretty much killed it for me. There are no replacements equal to anyone in a musical classic as Grease. The standard was set very high. Many songs were decent but the big hits such as Beauty School Dropout and the songs Travolta sang originally were so great,the songs in Grease live were poor and struck a nerve. Riz was great and sang super. Sandy was decent but no one ever could equal Olivia.The acting was entertaining and Mario Lopez tribute to Dick Clarks American Bandstand instead of "National Bandstand" took me by surprise.Overall it was fun to watch for awhile but I found myself tired of the music. I guess I am too picky! I won't watch it 100 plus times like I most likely have the original or even watch it again but it was better than the Pro Bowl.
