Say what you will about the original “Grease,” this sorry sequel makes it look like “Singin’ in the Rain” by comparison. Its half-baked musical numbers are devoid of memorable melodies, most notably the song devoted to the joys of bowling (''Let's bowl, let's bowl, let's rock and roll''). There is also an utter lack of chemistry between romantic leads Maxwell Caulfield and Michelle Pfeiffer. Not even their role-reversal from the Olivia Newton-John/John Travolta storyline (Pfeiffer only wants to date a “cool rider”) can justify this gross re-hashing of the original.-Xfinity Entertainment Programmers
