From the longrunning hit Broadway show comes one of the most popular screen musicals of all time. 70's pop icons John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John join some of Hollywood's oldtime favorite personalities in this valentine to the 1950's. Things are really hoppi n' at Rydell High when Danny (Travolta) discovers the object of his "Summer Lovin'" fling Sandy (Newton-John) has moved to town and enrolled in his school. Rama-Lama Ding-Dong!
Grease was a phenomenal hit with its target teenage audience when it was released in 1977. The songs dominated the pop charts and brought heady success for its lead actors, John Travolta (Danny) and Olivia Newton-John (Sandy) despite the fact that--as with their energetic co-stars--their own teenage years were some way behind them. As they seize the chance to relive their schooldays, their verve and enthusiasm explodes from the screen. The real class, though, comes from Stockard Channing as feisty Rizzo and, in a couple of cameos, wisecracking silver screen actresses from yesteryear Eve Arden and Joan Blondel.
Based on the 1972 stage show and adding several new numbers, Grease is at heart a rites-of-passage movie with plenty of feel-good moments and a euphoric buzz. "You're the One That I Want", "Hopelessly Devoted to You" and "Summer Nights" became the soundtrack for a generation of high-school students on the cusp of adulthood. Today, it looks like a pastiche of those 1950s Connie Francis rock & roll beach films. But the steady stream of double entendres and knowing body language render it more accessible to the less innocent late 1970s. It's overwhelming nostalgia for anyone in the vicinity of 40.
On the DVD: The 25th anniversary special edition of Grease rolls back the years: the 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen presentation transports you instantly back to fifth-form heaven in the local fleapit. The Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound ensures that the songs--ever the staple of MOR radio--complete the nostalgia trip with real zip. The main extra is a short series of fond reminiscences from the actors and director Randal Kleiser, actually filmed for the 20th anniversary. --Piers Ford

It is a run of the mill corny romance. Terrible acting, if it can be called that.
Where it succeeds is the music which is till good almost 40 years after the making of the film and will continue to be good
listening many years from now.
I've lost track of how many times I've watched this, always spot something new.
Who is that on the right? and who is snogging in the background at the dance contest?
When the girl slips and nearly broke her neck is funny. I trust she is ok.
Always something new. Sadly a few product placements and a swastika have been added but not enough to spoil the cartoon.
2018 will be the 40th anniversary. All the remaining cast and crew should celebrate that.
A 40 year anniversary edition without the products and the swastika will be the greatest film in history.
