...is it about the movie musical "Grease"? I've seriously tried and I just can't get it. My wife is inside now with her eyes glued to it like it's The Godfather - and does this on occasion when it comes on. I watch 5 minutes of it and consider poking my eyes out. So I ask you, what the heck am I missing here?

Should this be in rant?

once? ONCE? no one can see Grease only once... if you are older than 35 that it is. NO WAY...

...and your point about that IS????? ;)

I have both screenplays memorized and the soundtracks are always in my car. I'm hopelessly afflicted, I'm afraid...so I can't be objective. I thoroughly love both movies. As an undergrad, we had Grease parties at my sorority house and watched them all the time.

I guess it comes down to the ability to suspend your disbelief entirely for a little while and escape to a little musical world of 50's fantasy and fun.

Is it completely insane that I wanted a "cool rider" of my very own? ;)

The movie sequence will be:
Ferris - Grease - Ferris - Grease - Ferris - Grease - *

You will be assimilated!

*I have both of these movies on top of the tv, for easy viewing access

Don't think so... there are several things in life that I may miss... but Grease is definitely not one of them.

I can still vividly recall my wife and her mother standing in line to see this piece of drivel... while I opted to watch Capricorn One. I have never regretted my decision.

In the list of truly great movies... GREASE simply does not cut it.

...it's just I've never personally met a guy who likes Grease or my other favorite musical chick flick, Dirty Dancing. No offense meant!

Grease and Dirty Dancing are my girlfriends top 2 fav films ever too! Those and "10 Things I Hate About You". I'm not sure whether I'm conditioning myself into liking them just so I don't get a slap, or whether they actually are growing on me...

I'm scared :S

Look, spaghetti arms. This is my dance space. This is your dance space. I don't go into yours, you don't go into mine. You gotta hold the frame.
