Grease 2

From Academic Kids

Template:Infobox Movie Grease 2 was the 1982 sequel to 1978's smash hit movie Grease. The movie was somewhat criticized at first by many, as most sequels are. However, in recent years, it has surfaced on some cable TV channels, such as VH1, which has shown it on their show Movies That Rock, and has attained "cult movie" status for some.

Plot summary

The movie starts in the fall of 1961 (two years after the original) with a new group of students who are members of both the T-Birds, headed by Johnny (Zmed), and the Pink Ladies, headed by Stephanie (Pfeiffer). He wants to keep dating her, though her feelings for him are no longer there.

Meanwhile, Michael (Caulfield), an exchange student from England arrives. He is the cousin of Sandy, the character played by Olivia Newton-John in the first movie. Michael asks Stephanie out, but she does not feel like going out with grade worried, good student Michael. Stephanie tells Michael she would like to date someone with a motorcycle, a "Cool Rider".

Michael starts doing the T-Birds' homework for money, so he can buy his own bike and impress Stephanie.

A fight ensues between the T-Birds and rivals The Cycle Lords (headed by Balmudo, who had played the leader of the "Scorpions" gang from the original movie) after a game of ten-pin bowling. As the T-Birds are being beaten, a mysterious biker emerges and beats the Cycle Lords, embarrassing them and conquering Stephanie along the way. Now Michael has a dilemma: either keep on going as the mysterious biker, or take the risk of telling Stephanie that he is the biker who has her so impressed and lose her forever.

Johnny is jealous of Stephanie and Michael. He vows to retaliate against the biker, threatening to Stephanie that he will hurt him the next time he sees him.

At the June Moon Talent Contest (as summer graduation 1962 approaches), The T-Birds chase the mysterious biker into a construction site ("Dead Man's Curve"), from where he is forced to jump into the night. The T-Birds look around to try to find their victim. Everyone assumes he has died, and Stephanie feels broken-hearted. Later during the talent show, Stephanie "spaces out" and ends up singing "(Love Will) Turn Back the Hands of Time" in the middle of the Calendar Girls' (Pink Ladies) performance. This appears to the audience to be a solo, but to Stephanie it is a duet with her recently lost love, the mysterious biker, who now seems to be in biker heaven.

Johnny and Stephanie are crowned king and queen of the talent show. Soon after, however, the Cycle Lords reappear, threatening to destroy everything within sight. Out of nowhere, the dark biker reappears, to Stephanie's relief and happiness. He finally reveals himself as Michael.

While Stephanie is shocked, she realizes at that moment that the man she had loved all along was Michael, so she goes over to him and expresses her love to him with a kiss. Johnny was shocked too. Admiring Michael for the way in which he had beaten arch-rivals the Cycle Lords twice, he decides to make Michael a member of the T-Birds by handing him a T-Bird jacket.
