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

This zest for life is particularly apparent in the lively and eminently sing-able chorus song-and-dance numbers. The tunes of retro party favourites such as 'Greased Lightning' and 'You're The One That I Want' will probably be familiar to many viewers, but lesser known songs, including the short and sarcastic 'Look At Me I'm Sandra Dee' and 'Beauty School Drop-Out' (with Frankie Avalon in the role of guardian angel) are also fun toe-tappers.
Musicals work best when, like Grease, they concentrate on the music rather than the plot; however, the story here is completely adequate. Sandy and Danny had a summer fling at the beach, but at school Danny has an image to uphold - which Sandy doesn't really fit - so their senior year at Rydell High is spent in a daze of "will-they-won't-they" teenage angst.
John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John set the screen alight as Danny and Sandy; there are some fabulous character roles in the "Pink Ladies" and "T-Birds" school cliques, and some very funny cameos - particularly the pairing of Principal McGee and Blanche the office lady. There are sexual innuendoes aplenty if you look hard enough, and despite the fact that the movie is set half a century ago, the viewer is led to conclude that teenagers have been, and will always be, teenagers.
They didn't go over the top with ridiculous grain smoothing; the colour balance is masterwork; cleanliness is flawless; smooth as silk; detail spectacular ... WOW.
Could not be any better. Sounds is epic, get out your most expensive speakers.
Regarding the movie itself _Grease_ - of course, it's one of the great masterpieces of Western civilisation, what can you say?
One of the best movies ever made has very fortunately received a ten-star BluRay mastering ... utterly wonderful. We're so lucky. So good you'll want to buy a better plasma! Enjoy!
Grease was created by the two geniuses Warren Casey and Jim Jacobs. Casey sadly passed away back in 1988; RIP. This ultimate-quality Blu-Ray disk is worthy of this film ... easily the greatest modern musical film!
This "new" DVD version is truly remarkable. The picture is sharper (which - thankfully - gives much needed improvement to the opening "cartoon" segment), and the soundtrack has been digitally remastered giving it a much clearer sound. I have seen the digitally remastered VHS version of "Grease", but it's pale in comparison to the DVD.Read more ›
1. Pure cheese - songs to remember, sing along to, the typical boy meets girl, drama, happy ending storyline
2. Costume - so much nostalgia within this film!
3. Actors and characters to idolize
4. Deals with little teenage mishaps such as boy problems, pregnancy etc
5. Its aim isnt to be a groundbreaking, convention-breaking, film but just a happy representation (yes, representation - an interpretation as opposed to a mirror) of high school and 1950s society.
6. I mainly love this film because I have never grown tired of it, some films are amazing because they completely surprise or shock you but this has the quality of being watched over and over.
7. Haha the jokes and loveable characters - always wanted to be like Rizz!
I could think of much more...
