Grease is still the word…I DON’T THINK SO!

Yay!  I’m a winner (well, a big fat loser really).  I just won the trifecta of bad movie musicals when I took a chance on Grease 2.  To be perfectly honest with you I never saw this movie when it came out in 1982.  I’m not sure why.  Maybe I was grounded when it came out because I know that some of my friends saw it and liked it (there’s no accounting for teenage taste).  I’m so glad I was grounded.  Thanks Mom. 


Oh to go back to those days when I was innocent of all that is Grease 2.  How I long for the days before I had witnessed such musical atrocities as “Score Tonight” which involves the Pink Ladies and the T-Birds singing and dancing at the bowling alley with lyrics like “let’s bowl, let’s bowl, let’s rock-n-roll”.  And “Reproduction” a song set in sex education class where they sing things like “make my stamen go beserk”.


I won’t even go into who’s who and what’s what because, well, it’s just not worth it.  Michelle Pfeiffer plays Stephanie Zinino, the leader of the Pink Ladies, while they could never live up to originals, they weren’t that bad.  Don’t even get me started on the T-Birds more like the T-Blobs who are a total waste of space.  Zuko and Knickie would have been ashamed.


I can only think of one really funny line.  It’s when the Pink Ladies are in the Pink Mobile driving really fast and reckless as they are following the T-Birds who are following Mystery Biker guy so they can rearrange his face.  And one of the girls says, “We’re going to die and I’m wearing my mother’s underwear!”  I’m not even sure why I thought this was so funny, but it made me laugh.


Okay, so here is my favorite scene.  Let me break it down for you:


Michael, he’s Sandy’s cousin, asks Stephanie out and she turns him down because he’s not her type.  So she gives him a musical version of her e-Harmony profile which describes her perfect man as a “Cool Rider”.  Michelle’s singing and dancing are okay, but she’s so annoyingly adorable, it’s hard not to like this scene.  Here have a look:


Stephanie is so cute in her black skinny jeans and her black jacket with the pink satin lining but I think I her hair looks a little more like 1980’s than 1960’s. 


I guess I will have to put this in the Nice Ass Bad Movie category because Michelle Pfeiffer does have a tiny, but very cute derriere and well, sorry, but this a baaaaaad movie.  A bad, bad, bad, bad movie.  (Sing that to the “Cool Rider” tune for the full effect.) 


Here’s another clip I found.  I think it is jd and webster.  Or is that atoochie.  Maybe sheba and hootch?  I’m not sure.  Let me know.

    Hey I’m a single mom blogger too. I went to film school, so I have an interest in movie reviews as well, and was psyched to find your blog. You should update it!
