Almost everybody has seen Grease, but what about its sequel Grease 2? Controversial, maybe, but we think it's a classic and these are the reasons why we love it...

1. The soundtrack

There’s no denying there are some absolute tunes in Grease 2. Reproduction, Do It For Our Country, Cool Rider and Score Tonight to name but a few. Don’t we all want a rider that’s cool?!

2. The leading couple

So they may not be Danny and Sandy, but we loved the Michael Carrington (Maxwell Caulfield) and Stephanie Zinone (Michelle Pfeiffer) love story. We were especially fond of Michael because he’s a Brit!

3. The familiar faces

Frenchy, Eugene, Principle McGee and others make appearances in both Grease and Grease 2. We like the familiarity and it helps remind us it’s a sequel.

4. The Pink Ladies and T-Birds

Grease 2 is set two years after the original at Rydell High School. We love that, albeit different people, the Pink Ladies and T-Birds still exist!

5. The Judy Garland connection

Judy Garland’s daughter, Lorna Luft, plays Paulette Rebchuck – one of the Pink Ladies. Too cool for school!

6. The stunts

The motorbike stunts in Grease 2 were pretty cool. It made us want to dress in leathers and learn how to ride too. We can’t deny being impressed that Michael made that jump either.

7. The plot

It’s nice that the guy changes for the girl – and not the other way around – for once! We do love a happy ending too!
