16 Reasons “Grease 2” Is Better Than The Original

The most under-appreciated sequel in movie history is actually amazing.

1. There are motorbikes instead of cars.

Paramount Pictures

Cool riders are so much better than greased lightnings.

2. The Pink Ladies Pledge.

Paramount Pictures

“The Pink Ladies Pledge: to act cool, to look cool and to be cool. ‘Til death do us part - think pink!”

3. Choreographed basketball dancing.

Paramount Pictures

Decades before Zac Efron ever tried it in High School Musical.

4. Feminist progress.

Paramount Pictures

In Grease 2, the boy changes in order to get the girl, rather than the girl changing her identity to please the boy.

5. This comedic power couple.

Paramount Pictures

Principal McGee and Blanche are in fine form for the sequel.

6. Frenchie is back and even more hopeless.

And road safety doesn’t appear to be an issue.

13. The T-Birds are more suave than ever.

Paramount Pictures

Walk, talk like a T-Bird.

14. Stephanie’s emotional breakdown.
