The Music and Feeling go on Forever.
It's 1961, two years after the original Grease gang graduated, and there's a new crop of seniors and new members of the coolest cliques on campus, the Pink Ladies and T-Birds. Michael Carrington is the new kid in school - but he's been branded a brainiac. Can he fix up an old motorcycle, don a leather jacket, avoid a rumble with the leader of the T-Birds, and win the heart of Pink Lady Stephanie?
I wasn't expecting Grease 2 to be anywhere near as good as Grease (1978), but it also isn't totally awful. The songs are fairly enjoyable (despite often lazily masquerading as sexual innuendo) and the story, despite covering familiar ground, is still quite fun. I'll admit the performances leave a little to be desired, with Michelle Pfeiffer often looking embarrassed in most scenes, and Maxwell Caulfield doesn't quite have the charisma to pull off leading man duties. It's also painfully evident that the script still required a lot of work before shooting began - but I suppose following the success of the first film it was inevitable that greedy hands would want to cash-in. Still, it's nice seeing some of the supporting cast from Grease return.
Otra secuela que se aprovecha del éxito de la original. Esta es realmente conocida como una de las peores secuelas de la historia, no es para menos, consigue destruir todo lo creado en la anterior. Primero, los personajes principales cambian, nuestros dos carismáticos protagonistas de la anterior se desvanecen para dejar a Michelle Pfeiffer y a Buenorro Anónimo, seguramente a Travolta le dijeron de aparecer y dijo que no, él tiene algo de integridad. El único personaje de la anterior, resulta ser un malo, la secuela se ríe de nosotros.
Es musical, como la original, pero en esta, las canciones aparecen por todo, no hay un motivo sino: -Tío, tenemos que poner una canción aquí +Pero si aquí no pega…
Secret Screening Room strikes again! This was terrible, but gets a second star for rip-on-ability. I liked pretending that Michael Carrington was actually The Terminator under all of his Cool Rider gear.
"I need your clothes, your boots and your motorcycle."
In actuality, a horrible, silly film. But I love it anyway. Michelle Pfeiffer is a goddess.
The infamous sequel to the hit musical certainly isn't substantially worse than its predecessor, and throws in several moments of actual charm alongside its general sense of cluelessness about what it's trying to do.
steaming pile of crap
One of my first movie crushes was Michelle Pfeiffer in this movie. She was hawt!
Yeah, it's not the original, but there's something about Grease 2 that I like.
Maybe it's the Pheiff. Or the devastatingly handsome Maxwell Cauffield. Or the catchy songs (YOU try getting Reproduction out of your head). Or the overall campiness.
Double feature with Xanadu for a great time.
Let's do it for Disneyland, guys.
