Theater Thursday


That's right! It's Theater Thursday! Wow! Sometimes I feel the week flies and all of the sudden and out of no where it's Thursday! This week I'm talking about Grease 2

I absolutely love Grease 2. I actually enjoy it more than the 1st. Grease 2 begins with the start of the next school year. This time instead of Sandy (Olivia Newton John), it's her cousin Michael (Maxwell Caulfield) who's come to study abroad. He immediately becomes smitten with the head of the Pink Ladies, Stephanie (Michelle Phiffer) wants nothing to do with him. He in turn tries to figure out a plan to win her heart. 

There's a great ensemble cast in this movie. The only original Grease movie member to make an appearance is Frenchie. The T-birds include a now famous actor Chris McDonald (known for Happy Gilmore). Surprisingly, all of the actors can sing remarkably well. I hate to pull out my nerd card....but I do own the soundtrack to this movie....
  

Anyways, check out Grease 2. If you ever saw the first one and liked it, then I'm sure you'll enjoy the 2nd one as well! Pre-Warning: It comes with some catchy tunes that you'll find yourself singing!

Yup and I love them both! Robert, however, refuses to watch it because he was forced to do a play on it in highschool....He can't tell me how many times they had to sing those songs and he's sick of them:p But I still love them!

They are both so awesome! When I hear one of those songs they are stuck in my head for at least several days!

I've never seen Grease 2 but you've inspired me to rent it and I may do so tonight! I LOVE the original Grease, obsessed with it really. So, I imagine I will also love the 2nd. Thanks for your overview! Have a wonderful day, lovely!

dud...I cannot believe you put this movie up!!! We would sing the soundtrack on the bus to our soccer games in HS...waaaaay back when. Can you imagine a bus load of girl soccer players singing "Reproduction" and "Let's do it for out country" and "Let's bowl" BWAH! We even had a Paulette and a Johnny singing the solos. Good times. Fabulous post. I am sure that I will have to go watch it now.

I LOVE Grease 2. I'm not even embarrassed to admit I own the soundtrack. I know the movie's been on all sorts of Worst Movie Ever lists, but I think the cheesiness is so fun. One of my college roommates brought back her VHS version after a winter break and we watched it a million times.

omg, I absolutely LOVE this movie! I even owned it on VHS - I have yet to get the DVD. For some reason, the bowling song just got caught in my head. hah!

You like Grease 2 better than the first? Seriously! Maybe its because I love the 1st one so much, but I am not a big fan of the second. Of course I've only watched it once on TV, so maybe I should give it a second chance?

P.S. I left you an award on my site
