What Parents Need to Know

logo for common sense media

Parents need to know that Grease is full of somewhat racy material, although most of it isn't any more shocking than the content of today's teen films and television shows. Still, you might want to give it a quick "refresher" watch before showing it to kids under 13 to make sure you remember exactly what they'll be seeing. Characters smoke, drink, and spike the punch at the school dance. Characters use an obscene finger gesture and say "ass," "crap," "weenie," "flog your log," and the like, and one sings, "Look at me, I'm Sandra Dee, lousy with virginity." The song "Greased Lightning" has profanity including "t-t," "s--t," and "p---y wagon." Characters make out. At the drive-in, Danny makes a pass at Sandy. Sexual activity is implied when two characters discuss a broken condom, resulting in Rizzo's fear she may be pregnant. Naked derrieres are seen when characters moon a passing car and, later, a television camera. The T-Birds discuss female anatomy, and one fellow peeks up the skirts of female students. The Pink Ladies dance around in their nighties mocking Sandy's virginity. A T-Bird draws a switchblade in preparation for a rumble.
