Grease 2

Film, Drama

Time Out says

As gaudily tempting a soft-centre as ever graced a Woolworth counter. Liberally picking'n'mixing assorted elements of American popular culture, Birch picks up the story of Rydell High a few years on from where Randal Kleiser left it. Travolta and Newton-John have moved on, Conn is back from beauty school, and straight skirts have replaced full ones; these changes apart, we're on familiar ground. Pink Lady Pfeiffer steals the heart of Caulfield, a straight A, strait-laced student from England who is excruciatingly dull (rating 8 on a chuckability scale of 10). However, he gets himself a pair of wheels and wins his girl. Such niceties as a plausible plot and three-dimensional characters are trampled under Weejun-shod foot, but sheer energy, a handful of good tunes (including a great theme song from the Four Tops), and some very funny one-liners save the day.
