I have always loved this movie more than any at all. John Travolta was the perfect fit for the character. This movie is the best of any musical with well done dance moves for the era. I normally do not watch musicals, but this movie has a place in my heart. The greesers to the pink ladies. If you've never watched this movie, it's recommended beyond the 5 star rating. If I could, I'd give it a 10. Most people who loved this one never really gave the sequel a real chance, but I love them both.
For something that was mediocre on Broadway, the film version revitalized the interest in this musical. Star talent as well as raw talent on the screen recreated an interest in this reminiscent creation of Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey.
Fun dance numbers, memorable songs, and Stockard Channing make this film one to watch again and again.
Very good copy! I know with the DVD there have been many different releases of this film and a lot of complaints about sound quality. When I bought the DVD (before I had a Kindle Fire) it took me a week to wade through the reviews to find a decent copy. Well wade no more, buy this one for your Kindle and wow - great sound and great video, no problems. Mind you, I have a Fire HD so I cannot speak for a regular Kindle but I see no reason why it wold not be the same quality. As for the film itself, its a classic and if you grew up with it you will love it. If you like musicals you will love it, if you fit neither category, run for the hills you will hate it. (unless you liked Hairspray).
