Now, to make an impression and win the girl's heart, Michael needs to up his game; learn how to ride a motorcycle, and transform himself into Stephanie's hot leather-clad fantasy. Is he up to the task?Written by
The title "Grease" refers to the Greasers that the show focuses on; specifically the T-Birds, who all grease their hair. The greaser subculture may have emerged in the post-World War II era among the motorcycle clubs and gangs of the late 1940s and the 1950s. The original greasers were aligned by a feeling of disillusion with American popular culture, either through a lack of economic opportunity in spite of the post-war boom or a marginalization enacted by the general domestic shift towards homogeneity. Most were male, often ethnic and working-class, and held interest in hotrod culture or motorcycling, (which explains the "Greased Lightning" number in Grease 1, and the "Cool Riders" number in Grease 2). A handful of middle class youth were drawn to the subculture for its rebellious attitude. This explains the rebellious attitudes of the T-birds and their female counterparts the Pink Ladies in the movie. See more »
Eddie Deezen returns as Eugene. However, in the first movie (set two years earlier), Eugene was portrayed as being a senior. Yet, here he's still portrayed as a high school student. See more »
That jacket you're wearing is T-Bird property. You want to leave the party, leave the jacket at the door.

In the film, after Stephanie wins the contest, it goes on to show the steakout in the final scene. Originally, there were a few minutes dedicated to a scene in which Micheal(believed to be dead in his alter ego, by Stephanie) comes out on stage as Stephanie is exiting the stage, unbeknowst to her that he is the cool rider and he is alive. He attempts to ask her what's wrong and she storms past him and runs off crying, then it cuts to the stakeout. See more »
Film was made with little love with the goal being to cash in on unsuspecting original GREASE movie fans.The idea was ok but the movie was dne so carelessly.The directing,screenplay,script,music and choreography was all poor.Too bad because the movie could realy be enjoyed more due to it's great setting and genre.The lead actors did their best but to no fault of theirs,they could not save this debacle.The movie will still be enjoyed by big high school life genre fans and big fans of the lead actors although they will be swallowing a lot of bad sequences just to justify their fanatisism......
