Grease – A true review from a big fan!!

I absolutely love this film… like way too much!

So much so that Stephen refuses to watch it with me because I will literally say the entire film as it’s said on the screen!! That level of obsessed.

But no matter how much I love it, there are some things that I just cannot watch!!!!

So here is a list of pros and cons from one of my favourite films of all time!!!
Be sure to let me know if you agree or not in the comments.

 

Pros

You cannot help but feel good after watching this film, if it doesn’t make you smile you’re dead inside.

Sandy is literally perfect for the little miss perfect image and her transformation also works so well! It’s not easy to find someone who can do both. 

Rizzo’s “There are worst things I could do” sends shivers down my spine… BEST SONG IN THE FILM.

“Men are rats, worse than that, they’re fleas on rats, worse than that, they’re amoebas on fleas on rats, the only man a girl can depend on is her daddy.” Best line in the film. 

Danny and Sandy’s chemistry is out of this world.

Sonny Latierri is too funny. 

The music from this film literally brings everyone together at a family party… don’t believe me, gather your family in a room and play you’re the one that I want, you’ll see.

It is classed as a low budget film yet it’s one of the biggest films of all time!

It makes so many British people wish they could go to high school in America! It literally seems so cool.

It was that good, they tried to make a second one which completely failed because nothing could ever live up to the first one. 

It is pretty much impossible to find someone who has never seen this film, it will probably be iconic for years to come.

Its actually quite relatable to high school kids. 

It unites all ages.

 

Cons

What the hell were they thinking having Sandy date that boring as hell loaf of bread?! No need… could have chosen someone a little bit less dull.

THE CAR FLIES….WHAT?!?!

Beauty school drop out is by far the creepiest scene I’ve seen in a long while, in any film! I have to fast forward.

Someone please teach Sandy to cartwheel.

Why does Danny not tell ChaCha to do one…?

Would they really film a high school dance and put it on TV? Like I’ve never heard of them doing that before… unless it’s something from the 50’s? 

Danny cannot sing. Like fully, he can’t!!!

I can’t help but love this film but there are just some things about it that really don’t sit right with me. If they changed it though, it just wouldn’t be the same!!!

Is there anything you don’t agree with on this list? Or something you think I missed?

    1. So apparently it’s something to do with a metaphor of how powerful they made the car and the whole grease lightening but it’s still so strange😂
