Grease 2 (1982)

Given the runaway success of Grease, which became the biggest-grossing movie musical of all time, it was all but inevitable that there would be a sequel, and four years later this follow-up brought a new group of kids back to Rydell High.… More

Consensus: Grease 2 is undeniably stocked with solid songs and well-choreographed dance sequences, but there's no getting around the fact that it's a blatant retread of its far more entertaining predecessor.

Roger Ebert
Chicago Sun-Times

This movie just recycles Grease, without the stars, without the energy, without the freshness and without the grease.

Where this film has a decided edge on its predecessor is in the staging and cutting of the musical sequences.

It doesn't work, but you could spend the time spotting relatives of the stars.

I don't mean to deny the self-evident second-rateness of the project, just to suggest that it's preferable to the third-rateness that has become the norm in the genre.

Sheer energy, a handful of good tunes (including a great theme song from the Four Tops), and some very funny one-liners save the day.

Definitely of the so-bad-it's-almost-good genre, this kinda stands the test of time in a camp way, mainly because of the charm of Pfeiffer and Carrington.

Grease 2 is the most serendipitous sequel in recent memory. It is an ingratiating, jubilant improvement on a crummy original.

Janet Maslin
New York Times

Grease 2 is dizzy and slight, with an even more negligible plot than its predecessor had. This time the story can't even masquerade as an excuse for stringing the songs together.

People Magazine

Grease is most emphatically not the word this summer.

In an attempt to topple its predecessor, Grease 2 fails to concoct even a remotely decent storyline. The progressive, incoherent plot and faltering chemistry… More

The music was awful, the plot was thick as oatmeal, and the dialouge felt like cheap vinyl. The only thing they did right was cast Michelle Pfeiffer, who's… More

An unnecessary and silly sequel to musical classic, Grease.
Dean McKenna
This sequel of 1978's blockbuster musical film is ridiculous. Surprised to see Didi Conn, Eve Arden, Sid Caesar, and Dody Goodman, all faculty members from… More

A horrible sequel to Grease, a classic musical. This one has very silly songs that don't have anything to do with the story. I hate it.
Candy Rose
Not a patch on the first one. Why did they do it?
