Yanbu. Always thought this. "change yourself into something you're not and you're sure to get the guy". Not the best message really.

Are you my mum?
She wouldn't let me watch this as a teenager due to this very reason. and because she said it was a load of rubbish
Despite being very annoyed then I can see her point now especially about it being rubbish

WillYouDoTheFandango Sun 23-Sep-12 21:49:56

The message is clearly "boys like slutty looking girls" grin

OrangeImperialGoldBlether Sun 23-Sep-12 21:50:57

And the fact one of the girls got pregnant didn't change that, did it?

GoldShip Sun 23-Sep-12 21:52:09

I've always thought this!

Proudnscary Sun 23-Sep-12 21:52:43

WTF? So you mean women shouldn't dress and act like subservient trollops to lure/keep men??

Then what on earth should we ladies do to snag a man? Be amusing, intelligent and educated or something??

still love Grease though

It's on on E4+1 at the moment. grin

DH has never seen it. shock

threeorangesocksmorganisagirl Sun 23-Sep-12 21:56:55

what is it with mn these days, all mary whitehouse

DameEnidsOrange Sun 23-Sep-12 21:57:42

shock at Sparklings DH not having seen it.

But yes OP you are right, it is a dodgy message, but of it's time.

I do like the fact that there are some strong women in the film though

Sparklingbrook Sun 23-Sep-12 21:58:55

I feel the same about Dirty Dancing. Young girl on a family holiday has a sleazy time with the dance instructor bloke. sad

PrideOfChanur Sun 23-Sep-12 21:59:16

YADNBU! Very,very annoying. And what has Mary Whitehouse got to do with it? Rizzo is my favorite character in Grease.

OutragedAtThePriceOfFreddos Sun 23-Sep-12 21:59:31

YABU. It's Grease! You can't start trying to change Grease!

<shakes head and walks away muttering 'PC gone mad'>

YABU - apart from the hair it's a much better look.

He fell in love with her when she was naice though so I think she is doing it for her friends rather than him.

Lorelilee Sun 23-Sep-12 22:01:56

Leave well alone - my favourite film EVER.

storminabuttercup Sun 23-Sep-12 22:02:16

But he changes his image too, so who knows what happens after that flying car lends

Rizzo wasn't PG, was a false alarm

<has watched grease too often>

catwoo Sun 23-Sep-12 22:02:42

Hmm maybe that's the kind of girl she really was and she was repressing it.

Lorelilee Sun 23-Sep-12 22:02:53

Why don't you look at it from the POV that they BOTH had to comprise to be with the one they love?

Napdamnyou Sun 23-Sep-12 22:02:53

Maybe she did it for herself

Look at me, there has to be
Something more than what they see
Wholesome and pure
Oh so scared and unsure...

compromise even.

Napdamnyou Sun 23-Sep-12 22:04:12

Sandy you must start anew
Don't you know what you must do?
Hold your head high, take a deep breath and cry...
Goodbye to Sandra D.

freddiefrog Sun 23-Sep-12 22:04:15

But doesn't he end up sporting a rather natty cardigan to try and attract her?

I'd never seen it until a few years ago, my DH has never seen Dirty Dancing

sittinginthesun Sun 23-Sep-12 22:04:36

My mum went bonkers when I said that I couldn't wait to be a teenager so that I could be just like that.

When I watched it again as a teenager, I couldn't believe she changed just to please a nan. grin
