Grease is one of those movies that you just can’t help but like. It has a great, 50s inspired soundtrack, some good young actors, led by the charismatic John Travolta, who look as though they are having the time of their lives on-screen and a good screenplay based on the hit stage musical. It is very hard to pinpoint just one factor that made Grease such an enjoyable film.

I have seen Grease probably a thousand times since I was a kid and it’s a film that I still love to watch. My sister used to be obsessed with Grease and more specifically with John Travolta, which is one of the reasons why I watched the film so often. My sister also liked to watch Grease 2 a lot as well but I never really liked that movie so much.
