Synopsis: John Travolta solidified his position as the most versatile and magnetic screen presence of the decade in this film version of the smash hit play Grease.  Recording star Olivia Newton-John made her American film debut as Sandy, Travolta’s naive love interest.   The impressive supporting cast reads like a “who’s who” in this quintessential musical about the fabulous ’50s.   Grease is not just a nostalgic look at a simpler decade–it’s an energetic and exciting musical homage to the age of rock ‘n’ roll!

Special Features:

  1. Commentary by Director Randal Kleiser and choreographer Patricia Birch
  2. Introduction by Randal Kleiser
  3. Rydell Sing-Along
  4. Deleted/Extended/Alternate Scenes with introduction by Randal Kleiser

 

There is no doubt that Grease must be one of the most watched or heard film musicals of all time. It is not a great movie by any means – certainly not at the level of Singing in the Rain, The Sound of Music, or Evita for that matter. It is however a fun easy kind of movie that anyone can enjoy. It does not take itself seriously, but just seeks to entertain us. If you are a fan of Grease, I would suggest a strong buy for the improved picture and sound quality.

You’ll also enjoy righteous bonus materials that give you an insider’s peek at this hilarious comedy hit from John Hughes (Planes, Trains & Automobiles, Sixteen Candles).   So, barf up a lung, forge a “sick note” from the parents, and tag along on the funniest adventure to ever sweep through the Windy City.   What are you still doing here? Save Ferris!

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off resides among the best the Comedy genre has to offer. Paramount has done right by the film’s Blu-ray releasing, providing a good video transfer, a surprisingly robust and clear soundtrack, and a few extras. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off comes highly recommended. 

Named the “Bueller…Bueller…Edition,” this Blu-ray release of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off isn’t absent special features, but it certainly doesn’t earn an A for quantity, either. Getting the Class Together — The Cast of ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’ takes a fairly interesting and strong look at the assembly of the cast, told through both classic and retrospective interviews. The Making of ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’ is another piece the combines both classic and retrospective interviews that this time look at the making of several scenes in the film, accompanied by behind-the-scenes photographs and clips from the movie.
