Grease can even make guys want to sing

05.27.2010

Yeah, I'm sure I’m going to get shit for this, but I actually love GREASE. It's one of the few movies with singing I actually enjoy, and whenever it’s on TV, I’ll always stick around and watch it to the end. Actually, I can’t ever remember seeing the beginning.

It’s John Travolta at his most awesome (besides PULP FICTION I suppose) and the whole thing is just so damn catchy.

Well, it’s so catchy in fact, that there’s going to be a theatrical re-release of the film, complete with subtitles so the entire theater can sing along. An interesting concept to say the least. Check out the preview below and go here to see if it's in your city. 

Extra Tidbit: And you can't beat Olivia Newton John in those leather pants at the end.

Grease is awesome...I think that and hairspray are two musicals i can actually dig (and both have travolta) - we got it back on the big screen last year also and went to see it and its awesome...but I heard for this re-release they are going to cut some scenes containing 'sexual content'?? Ok sure for its day maybe but these days that movie doesnt really do anything very offensive - yeah he tries to get his grope on in the drive-in but really...you need to cut that? Hopefully they dont cut

Grease played at one of the cinemas in my town at the beginning of the year and me and my girlfriend were the only ones in the theater. It was pretty cool.

Grease is one of my favorite movies of all time and it is a timeless classic. I watch it everytime it is on television and always feel better after watching it. I think this is an awesome idea.

Very comfortable...

This movie is a timeless classic like "Rocky Horror" and I would definitely see it again at the theatre if it came. Not big on the subtitles though as real fans shouldn't need them.

Grease isn't my thing but turning it into a fan experience like Rocky Horror is a pretty good idea.

Personally I'm a bigger fan some of the older, big studio productions like My Fair Lady, The King and I, Mary Poppins...

Or for a crazy musical experience, watch The Umbrellas of Cherbourg!

Funny how they put "the chicks'll scream" in the subtitles, but in the song they still say "cream".

I was actually a bit frightened that this was going to be a "Remake" story.

Grease Lightening!

New highschool musicals cant compare to this true classic. "Highschool Musical" was more of a "HEY LOOK AT ME" and had cheesy songs. With "Grease" you felt a connection to the characters, the story was believeable, the songs were great! There arent too many young teen musicals that can really compare to "Grease".

YES.

There is nothing like getting a nice drunk on with friends and singing songs from Grease at the top of your lungs.

Grease is one of my favorite musicals of all time, I love the movie. This is a good idea for an interactive re-release in spite of the fact I know the words to all of the songs in the movie.

Love Musicals.

Im a married straight man and yet I really enjoy musicals. Fiddler on the Roof, Grease, Sound of Music ect. Even if there were no musical parts they are all still great movies.

My wife thinks its weird though lol.

Why would you need to qualify your sexual orientation before stating your affinity for musicals?

I don't understand the problem some people have with Musicals, or the stigma attached. "Grease" isn't really my thing (I'm a Sondheim fanboy), but I love more than a few musicals. I don't consider them 'guilty pleasures' either, since musicals require incredible amounts of work and talent that most film fans are unaware of.

That's because you're being as shortsighted as people who can't understand why people *do* like musicals. Get some perspective - it makes life sweeter. Besides, I don't have a problem with all musicals, I just don't like Grease. Don't extrapolate things from my comment that weren't there.

Smooveluv- Sorry,that wasn't meant to be directed at your comment and wasn't directed at you. I'd like to think I have perspective, though. I used to HATE musicals, like really dislike them. That is, until I started doing them. There's a lot of crap ones (I still HATE "Rent") but there's brilliance in them too ("Sweeney Todd, Gypsy," etc)... "Grease" isn't my thing, either...a bit too 'pop'-ish for me.

Never took to it myself

...but kudos to you for not being ashamed for it. I'm sick of people having a "-23" next to their post because they cut against the grain. Be a square peg. It's not like everyone here doesn't have a guilty pleasure.
