Skip It

Film: GREASE 2
Director: Patricia Birch
Actors: Michelle Pfeiffer, Maxwell Caulfield, Lorna Luft, Maureen Teefy, Didi Conn, Christopher McDonald, Pamela Adlon, Eve Arden, Sid Caesar, Adrian Zmed
Year: 1982

In an effort to capture the magic of the 1978 original, "Grease 2" was released. I've seen this film quite a few times, each one to see if maybe I can find something good. The only thing that saves this film from being the absolute worse thing to hit the silver screen is Michelle Pfeiffer (and honestly, her singing is atrocious). This movie follows Michael (Caulfield), who happens to be Sandy's (Olivia Newton John) cousin. He too has transferred to Rydell High and falls for an American greaser (Pfeiffer). It just doesn't do it for the audience. The story is tired, the cast is okay, and you won't really get into it. I'd recommend just skipping this turkey. **Lorna Luft, who plays Paulette... is the daughter of Judy Garland and producer Sidney Luft.

    As much as I like Michelle Pfeiffer I can't deny the fact that Grease 2 is a disgrace!
    It hasn't got any saving graces.
