As Blu-Ray still remains largely the province of gamers and fanboys, I don't really see the point of even releasing Grease on the format at all.

I can definitely imagine a modern tween coming across this movie and thinking, "What the heck is this?"

...there's no denying the charisma of the stars and the infectious nature of the song-and-dance numbers. (Blu-ray Edition)

Overall, the Grease (Rockin' Rydell Edition) is absolutely worth buying even if you have the previous edition, as much for its newly-remastered transfer as the bounty of bonus materials.

The Broadway-hit-turned-movie succeeds ... because of its charismatic cast, show-stopping musical numbers, and genuine sense of fun.

A solid-gold Fifties' atmosphere, great singable/danceable songs, good character chemistry, plenty of humor, and the kind of energy that you normally only get on a Broadway opening night. The cast really makes up for any shortcomings in the script.

Allen Carr calls Grease his own big party on the bonus featurette. Why do I get the feeling he auditioned for the part of Patty Simcox?

Simply put, the 1.33:1 Pan&Scan...image severely amputates the width of the original 2.35:1 image and destroys the technical characteristics of a widescreen composition (not to mention the film's artistic integrity).
