Grease (preview)

The official 20th anniversary release of this popular musical, set in the '50s rock'n'roll era. The story is about two teenagers - one a rebel, the other a goody-twoshoes, who fall in love with each other. However they misread each other's signals and think the other party is not interested. So in an attempt to win true love, they both switch personalities to the opposite...

I suspect a whole new generation of teenage boys are going to fall hopelessly in love with Olivia.

Visitor Comments

Lynette Anthony: One of the best all time musicals.

Rob Fisher: An all time great! A classic.

Reyaaz Hassan: Grease deserves a 10 simply because it is a big screen Must See - an all time corny classic - even if you've seen it a 1000 times : Nothing beats singing along in the dark to some of the catchiest tunes of all times : Also listen carefully - there are some dry bits of humour that may have escaped you in your teens.

Bruce Humphrey: Come sing along with the digitally remastered audio. John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John in their prime. Stockard Channing is very good as well. Great, entertaining, relaxing fun!

Yvonne Leonard: The best movie that I have seen! I own the video but still had to go and see it at the movies!
