It has no kind of focus in atmosphere or tone, it doesn't even have a look. It's just sort of floating insult, shopping for a subject to light on. Full Review
The New Republic
...A life that is all its own....Loaded with the kind of talent and exuberance you don't often find very far from a musical stage...
New York Times
Insidiously, it congratulates its audience on having achieved a stable perspective from which it can view with amused tolerance the turbulent times of its supposed teenage traumas. Full Review
Monthly Film Bulletin
...Zesty choreography and very excellent new plus revived music....Newton-John registers very impressively...
Never underestimate the power of catchy tunes, Travolta's hips, and a sweet-yet-smutty script. -- Grade: B+
Randall Kleiser's 1978 spoof of '50s iconography [is] so consciously cheesy from the outset that it hardly seems dated today. Full Review
The Age (Australia)
It's a winner. Full Review
New York Daily News
This film adaptation of GREASE is the zippy smash hit translation from the Broadway musical tribute to the fabulous 1950s. As a new school year begins, wholesome Australian exchange student Sandy (pop star Olivia Newton-John) and duck-tailed, leather-jacketed Danny (John Travolta) parlay their summertime romance into an on-and-off attraction that may or may not cross clique lines. Sandy seriously cramps Danny's style, so he dumps her. In response, Sandy begins dating a wholesome athlete, but, as a hedge, she also joins the gum-chewin', tough-talkin' clique known as the Pink Ladies. One of the most beloved musicals of all time, the popular soundtrack includes "You're the One that I Want," "Hopelessly Devoted to You," "Sandy," "Summer Nights," and the title tune.
