In my opinion, this is the rare case when sequel is better than the first film. In  Grease, of course, all was fine. —  & Travolta dancing, and singing Newton-John, and great songs. But the story was flawed. However, in the musical it wrong and now for example, "Grease 2" see you can combine all of the above (though in the performance of other actors) with interesting and sometimes even exciting story.

Very nice to see such young Michelle Pfeiffer and Maxwell Caulfield. Well and Adrian Zmed (remember the photographer-womanizer in his performance in the movie "Bachelor party" with Tom Hanks?) here is just ducky. And singing-how!... Not even know someone I picked place Stephanie...

In General, this film I put 10 out of 10. And review times and two.

In a number of films, especially exposing the subjective nature of perception of works of art in the same as the film adaptations (the Book is better!), the remakes (And how they only dared to touch the Holy!), biographies of famous personalities (No wrong everything was really!) suffer from the bias of high expectations and sequels of popular painting, according to the firm conviction of the audience doesn't need the sequel. And a tendency to replace the second part of favorite characters with new actors, a point guard, the fact that same story, only in the new scenery, only exacerbates the situation.

"Grease 2", which is living proof of this rule, could not to appear on the light, the producers manage to resist the temptation to develop a gold mine, which was the original film — technonology the musical with John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John. And as story of the further destiny of heroes of the first part would be a radical change of genre, the creators have stuck with the original choreographer Patricia birch, which took place in the Director's chair, no one of famous actors and raised half the budget. The result — film a crash has failed in hire, has been mixed mud critics and got a very bad reputation supported by the now ridiculously low rating on IMDb.

However, in my opinion, the picture is more than worthy to be justified in the eyes of modern viewers, representing, of course, neither an example of highly artistic art, and a little silly, but this cute and funny musical with enchanting music rooms and charming characters. In familiar school of Rydell high comes from England clever and studious boy, cousin of the most of the heroine Olivia Newton-John, instantly falling into the whirlpool of local passions, with required for any separate companies imposed stupid rules and hierarchical structure, not allowing even breathe in the side of the representatives of the higher castes. Of course, it falls in love with a girl school of elite, cool and willful Stephanie (a young Michelle Pfeiffer — the main bait for spectators), with he well, not, and it's not only class stereotypes — she's bored even with the most popular guy of the school and then there any lover of Shakespeare turn up.

And the heroine, Michelle, is not difficult to understand: the most obvious disadvantage of the second Grease is, especially in the compared Travolta, inexpressiveness of the hero, completely cleaned in the background character adriana SMEDA and the whole motley company of students, played on the good traditions of American cinema, adult uncles and aunts. For the Central character of the musical image created by Maxwell Caulfield, too static. We're used to that in this genre on the first cast are always a kind of PEP (from Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly, up to the same Travolta and Ewan McGregor), ready for the extra share of viewers ' attention literally confetti to scatter. Yes  & sprightly Stephanie, he put it mildly, not a couple of. It remains only to start drooling, imagining how many sparks would be flogged the characters of John Travolta and Michelle, if they are in one movie. However, this disadvantage is easily mitigated by the abundance of climbing on the first plan of young actors, not intend to lose given them the chance to start their own career (sorry, but most of them and left to languish in a tertiary projects and rarely seen the series), and a mass group of musical numbers that allowed the Director plenty to work on specialty.

It is on them on the crowded energy of youth and fight on the felling of his hit songs, I want to dwell: immediately sets the tone the entire film driving "Back To School Again" in the performance of the old man of the "Four Tops" seem to claim to the most accurate crystallization of feelings gnawing unfortunate students on the eve of the upcoming academic year; "Score Tonight", masterfully adapting a conventional bowling alley under the needs of the musical, proves that the invention of movies with songs and dances it is possible to remove at least about the boxers, though about mortuary workers; fierce and burning "Cool Rider" would have done the honour of young Kim world in therefore, great singing Michelle, whose grace subtle sexuality is clear, who is a female cat; "Reproduction" in times raises in memory which excitement among students contributed to the theme of reproduction in the one of the most boring of subjects with the perspective of the average pupil; mouth-watering "Do It For Our Country" nuclear "Prowlin" inadvertently spawn a blasphemous thought "not better "Grease 2" of its predecessor?" Convincing mantra appears crowning the film "Well Be Together" that adds the final necessary melancholic notes. No one room milk!

However, it is not only the songs, otherwise you would be limited to the purchase of the soundtrack or watching videos on the respective sites. "Grease 2" — this touching Comedy, and nostalgic greetings from the past, even given the dissimilarity of the local realities on our your high school years. It is foolish to seek out about the film is that there be the principle is not can. Before us is a youth musical film with work, but yet held on a rickety log elementary artistic taste, and got to the opposite shore in the arms of his older brother, too, by the way, do not competing for the title of the profound drama. So that is not matter bad karma this broken fate, but has found an appreciative audience, opus I can equivocation to say that never got so much pleasure from movie such a low rating. Indeed, the execution can not be pardoned.

I decided here to watch the continuation of the film "grease" in 1978 with the participation of all else a young John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John. It was after this film with Travolta through their appearance and excellent ability to dance became very popular in America. The actor began to demand literally selling like hot cakes. And the first part of "Grease" has become the benchmark tapes dancing the standard of those musicals years. Olivia Newton-John fame is also enough. Here only us deplorably little is known about the first film, and especially the sequel, it to say, not worth it. I know, but if the first picture you can see the and I be afraid of these words, not once, and even a few, I have the name "grease 2" I personally have been considered with large voltage.

The original painting with the name "grease" I looked the month of February this year. It was after the tapes with John Travolta I became interested in this mysterious name — grease. I found out after some time that is a kind of lubricant, the type of gel, which is applied to for obtaining the necessary forms. But, , this is the title is not quite right. As and usually, in fact, our domestic distributors have tried. After all, the word "grease" (so the tape is called in the original) translates as "fat". Apparently, Americans love the hair grease (I wonder what?), but it is a very different issue in details to get going.

You probably guessed that I sequel not like it. I want to say that it, it nor any gate not climbing, as said. Cost the first film to stop yourself, to calm your financial impulses. Although the second picture of 1982, has already and the creators of the other, and the performers of the main roles were reversed, of course. to say that tape is nothing new carries. And, not matter the presence of endless dancing and music, the timing seems too very long, gets bored, in other words.

All the action takes place in 1961 one of many American colleges. After the first film has grown a new generation of young American slackers. Young people doing everything: they sing, dance, smoke, drink, actively change their partners lives. Makes young people all but one — they do not learn. And really, why should they learning, if the educational institution has turned into a entertainment.

The plot revolves around a young and very beautiful girls name Stephanie. To nobody can affect, she lives his life and obeys only his own laws. She wants to meet  - called tough guy. The guy who would drove the bike, drank, smoked and cussed. This her real dream. In College you receive a suspicious newcomer on behalf of Michael. This boy is different from all — he is a good, kind, and most importantly, he smart. Mikey instantly falls in love with Stef, but problem that she not like it pretty.

This film may be notable only by the fact that it plays a very young Michelle Pfeiffer. The role of early, here she is to show how something is not worked out, because it is the musical is, therefore, to estimate the acting is not going. And so that tape is quite passable. Most of all irritated that it is constantly mentioned about Russian. About us with you said, of course, with the bad side, all jokes jokes aimed only in the direction of our country. In located in the record book of this picture directed by Patricia birch stand nothing will. Two, student.
