Beloved musical about an Australian “good girl” and a tough guy greaser who try to rekindle their passionate summer romance despite belonging to drastically different high school cliques in 1950s California.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
Vapid pop escapism, just shut off your brain, relive your childhood. Despite the aggressive faux nostalgia, I'll always love this film for its bold colours, comic book aesthetics and character designs, as well as the glorious CHA CHA!! who for ten minutes transforms the movie into 'Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!"
Just loved all the musical #s!
Ending kind of disappointed me. Isn't true love when you're comfortable w/ yourself compared to the other person? *SPOILER* Sandy goes all out with the leather and black, perms her hair, and starts smoking and Danny just puts on a freaking varsity letter cardigan. She stays w/ the rebel chick look & he goes back to greasing his hair. .__.
More like a two and a half. It's been a sore spot of mine for years now: my disdain for Grease. On one hand the songs can be a lot of fun but there's something irritating about the movie as a whole that always gets under my skin. I still have yet to see the whole thing because of this.
i don't think this movie is bad at all. i love this movie, it was fun, full of teen spirit, and the songs are catchy. but i kind of dislike the ending. why sandy has to be one of the bad girl? her old self is fine tho~
