Storyline
Return to rockin' Rydell High for a whole new term! It's 1961, two years after the original Grease gang graduated, and there's a new crop of seniors – and new members of the coolest cliques on campus, the Pink Ladies and T-Birds. Michael Carrington is the new kid in school – but he's been branded a brainiac. Can he fix up an old motorcycle, don a leather jacket, avoid a rumble with the leader of the T-Birds, and win the heart of Pink Lady Stephanie Zinone? He's surely going to try!

Rating:

You know, Grease 2 has taken a lot of flack & extensive bad reviews for not
living up to the original. I really don't think that is to fair considering
the cast was totally different. Granted there was no super-star-pop-icon
like Olivia Newton-John. There wasn't the hot-70's & 80's actor John
Travolta. However, there were some great stars in this film. The writing may
have been a little less than perfect…the direction might not have been up
to par. But for me, being EXTREMLY young when both Grease 1 & 2 came out, I
never compared the two. I think they are two different films with the same
"type" of concept. The music was good. The dance scenes are good. & yes,
even the story is okay. Grease mania is about being a devoted fan… that is
something I am. I liked both of these films on two different levels. Grease
without a doubt is the better of the two. But this one is not as bad as the
negativity everyone feeds into it. If see one, see the other. Just note that
they are both FUN movies! Nothing more. The sequel centers around Sandy's
cousin Michael. He is in love with Stephanie, & trys EVERYTHING possible to
win her over. The Pink Ladies are still cooler than ever. The T-Birds are
not as tuff, but are sexy! 1-10 Grease(10) Grease2(8) Z.
