Happy 25th anniversary to Grease 2! And I’m sure many of you are thinking, “Um, why should I care?” Well, um, many reasons. The first is that there is a blog clearinghouse dedicated solely to all the bloggers out there who love the 1982 movie musical as much as I do. (And no, I’m not ashamed to admit it!)
Among the other reasons you should be ecstatic over a celebration of this awesome sequel:
- A young Michelle Pfeiffer was excellent as Stephanie Zinone, the rebellious Pink Lady who enjoys chomping on gum and singing about finding her “Cool Rider.”
- What other flick has an entire scene in a bowling alley where the entire cast sings and dances to such provocative lyrics as: “Don’t get sore when you lose tonight, We’re gonna show you how to do it right.We’re gonna score tonight…”?
- Didi Conn reprised her role as the ditzy yet endearing Frenchy (she of the cotton candy coiffure), but luckily left her beauty school ambitions behind.
- During science class, the teacher and students break out into a number about reproduction with the key phrase, “Where does the pollen go?” I wish my high school classes would’ve been as lively as that!
So who’s with me on my love for Grease 2? And who’s running out right now to rent it because I was so persuasive? Anyone?
