Grease (1978)


Movie Review

Directed by: Randal Kleiser

Starring: John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John

Danny Zuko (John Travolta) and Sandy Olsson (Olivia Newton-John) meet on the beach one summer and fall in love.  At the end of the summer, they go their separate ways believing they will never see each other again because Sandy lives in Australia.  When the school year kicks off at Rydell High School, Danny once again joins up with his greaser friends the T-Birds.  Sandy, who unexpectedly remains in the US, enrolls in Rydell and makes friends with a group of bad girls known as the Pink Ladies.  Danny and Sandy tell their respective friends about their summer romance.  They both remain unaware of the fact that they now attend the same high school.  Their friends put things together and try to reunite the two young lovers, but they're not the same two people who fell in love on the beach.

Grease is one of the most celebrated musical films in American history for good a reason.  With catchy classic tunes such as “Grease Lighting” and “We Go Together”, you’ll certainly have loads of fun with these 50s teens.  Fresh from Saturday Night Fever, John Travolta delivers another enjoyable performance as the tough guy Danny Zuko.  Olivia Newton-John plays Sandy Olsson to perfection.  There is no musical that deserves to be on this bucket list more than Grease.
