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

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

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.

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.

Grease is most emphatically not the word this summer.

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

As a sequel to "Grease" it's terrible, and as a musical on its own merits, it's absolutely abysmal.

Rizzo says "no" to this hacky sequel.

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

A gloriously unpretentious gem just waiting to be discovered. That the film hasn't yet received the full respect it deserves only adds to its charm.

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.

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.

Grease 2 is a bad movie that really doesn't deserve much of a defense. There are moments in it that are so cringeworthy, one might think they were the reason fast-forward buttons were included on VCRs.

As far as '50s-styled cornball tributes to heavy-petting go, Grease 2 has got nothing on Prince's "Jack U Off."

Several performers from the original Grease return for the sequel, but not the important ones. Most conspicuously absent is John Travolta, replaced here by Maxwell Caulfield, who can't lift the original greaser's comb.

Without a doubt the greatest sequel to a Stockard Channing musical starring Adrian Zmed!

Sure, it's nowhere near as good - but you'll forget about that onces the rockin' soundtrack kicks in

Yup, it really is THAT bad. Hilariously bad, even.

In its sheer awfulness, it is one of the best camp entertainments you could ever find.
