Don't Bother!

Where do I start? This movie has a horrible plot, horrible acting, horrible songs, and the worst ending I've ever seen. Unlike Grease, a movie that is very offensive if you look at it closely, it had good music. This has horrendous music. The song "Who's that guy?" might be the worst of them all. Besides the obvious things wrong with it, like the way Johnny treats Paulette, the underlying message is.... change yourself! It's GREAT! As for the age rating, I'll say it like this: if you've seen Grease, it's fine. I'm not surprised Rizzo wouldn't go in this movie. It's probably the worst thing I've ever seen - and that's saying something.

Waste of time

Did not like this movie. I only watched it because Michelle Pfeiffer is in it. Did not get the whole story and it has horrible songs and a horrible ending. Not worth watching or buying, but if you're going to anyways then its free on YouTube. Tons of smoking, yelling and pushing.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
