5 stars out of 5 -- It’s still a sugar-rush of a film.
...The enduring appeal of the teenybopping musical spawned a knock-off sequel, a Broadway revival, and countless high school productions...
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
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)
Rating: 4/5 -- It succeeds...thanks to some toe-tapping numbers, sprightly hoofing and slick performances, not least by Stockard Channing as the most unruly teenager in town. Full Review
Rating: 3.5/4 -- What can I say? In the immortal words belted out by Sha-Na-Na, I guess I was born to hand jive, baby. Full Review
Never underestimate the power of catchy tunes, Travolta's hips, and a sweet-yet-smutty script. -- Grade: B+
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.
