Only a Real "Grease" Fan Can Score 100% on This Challenging Quiz!

Can you correctly answer all 35 questions about this classic musical rom-com?

Introduction

Grease premiered in 1978, becoming one of the most commercially successful (and wildly popular) films of that year. Its strong cast, witty dialogue, and great music cement this film as a true classic. Strong performances from John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John sell the love story between greaser Danny and goody two-shoes Sandy. Their strong vocals, too, make the film's songs some of the most memorable in movie history (as well as some of the most likely to get stuck in our heads). Randal Kleiser makes his debut as a theatrical feature film director in this rom-com musical; we wouldn't know it based on the masterful way he captures the film's most iconic moments, from the details in the dance sequences to the thrill of the drag race.

The stage musical on which this film is based is definitely grittier than the film, with Hollywood having had to tone down certain aspects of the story to reach a wider audience. Even if it it's not as explicit as its stage counterpart, though, the film Grease is more than just a simple romantic comedy. It still touches on some more serious topics, such as exploring identity and class, helping to make it a relevant movie no matter when it is viewed.

You know the dance moves. You can sing every song word for word. Now put that love for Grease to the test with this ultimate quiz (there are worse things you could do with your time!) This quiz contains 35 multiple-choice questions. Answer each one and you will receive a fun bit of trivia about the film. Click "Let's Play" to begin!
