What It's About: Ah, the ultimate musical film. John Travolta is at his finest as a high school boy from the wrong side of the tracks in love with the preppy, fresh-faced new girl, played by Olivia Newton-John. The two sing and dance their way through typical teenage problems alongside their "gangs" of friends. Travolta has his T-Birds, and Newton-John has her Pink Ladies, featuring a young Stockard Channing.
Why We Love It: Sure, most of "Grease" takes place during the school year, but is there anything better than the blowout end-of-year carnival where the two lovebirds finally get together and literally fly away in a car?
