I love it. The opening notes from Summer Lovin' never fails to get people up and dancing!!

RIP - I go through stages of hating and liking the film. Never love. My other half will be gutted, though. :(

Grease was a brilliant film. Very sad :( Also sad to hear that the actor who played Kenickie died this year, which I didn't know.

I loved Grease! Know all the songs... yes even the final one thats a tongue twister :D

Sad to hear this... My goodness thats young to die.

My daughters school threw a dance for the kids one year. When we turned up to drop them off there were dozens of "classic" cars parked outside the hall...... and inside!!!.... all the school staff had dressed up as the characters from Grease :lol: Brilliant!!!!! (and the headmistress was the spitting image of the headmistress in the movie)

AND they had been practising the dances etc and put on a show for the kids. I think the teachers had more fun than the kids that year.
