Thanks for the post from Hal Potter.

If somebody asked me what my favorite chick flick was, I wouldn’t even have to think about it. By far, Grease is the best chick flick you could watch. I mean, what else could you want? There is a lot of musical numbers, something I’ve always enjoyed. The clothes are simply divine; at least, if you can appreciate clothes from the 1950s. And the plot is cute, especially if you’re a fan of love stories.

I think this movie could be enjoyed by people of all ages. Kids can watch because they may not understand some of the more adult jokes. The adults, depending on their age, can reminisce about times gone by. I actually got my grandma to see it once, and she ended up talking to me about raising my mom back then, and what it was like.

The music is very catchy; even if a person has never seen the movie, chances are they know about the songs. I mean, they’ve played on the radio numerous times. Not all of them are the best, but many of them are. You just want to stand up and dance, whether you’re in the office or on the road.

Definitely, if a person is looking for a good time, they should check out Grease. Sometimes, if I’m lucky, I may catch it on Satellite tv; and when I do, you couldn’t pry me away.

Best Thing Ever

No actually, you might not want to know more. The new “Grease” is one of six films that Paramount Pictures is giving the “direct-to-video” treatment to through their newly set up Paramount Famous Prods. So, that means that we most likely will not see either Danny Zuko or Sandy Olsson, even thought I could totally picture them trying to make the new film about one of their kids (aiming things at the High School Musical crowd of course). Or not, since that would take the film 15 years in the future and out of the “Grease” time period. No matter what, the new film will be leaps and bounds better than the motorcycle racing “Grease 2” (although Michelle Pfeiffer could never do anything wrong in my eyes). Hey, if we’re lucky, maybe they will get Stockard Channing or Jeff Conaway to make an appearance.

The other 5 films going straight to DVD are three that I can careless about; “Mean Girls”, “Road Trip”, “Without a Paddle”, one that I’m iffy on; “Bad News Bears”, and one that deserves to get the theater treatment with a director and lead actor who have always expressed interest to make a 4th film in the series; “Naked Gun”.  I will be making a future post/rant about that last one.
