To wish Danny and Sandy didn't fly off in the car?

At the end of Grease? To me it’s just a horrible cheesy ending to one of my favourite films. And yes, watching it as a grown up i can see its messages are sexist and wrong and Danny is a complete turd, but I loved it as a child and can’t put it aside.

But the car, no...crap even as a child.

Isn't she dead?

He's driving her to heaven, surely?

Well it is a horrible and cheesy film so the ending does fit...

Agree it is just daft. But not sure what they could have done otherwise. Maybe a shot of Danny standing outside the toilets while Sandy took 3 years to pull her lycra trousers back up?

She's dead? What makes you say that? It is a very cheesy ending I agree.

Never got to the end of that misogynistic crap fest.

Queen why would she be dead?

There's a fan theory online that Sandy is dead in Grease, but I can't remember the finer points.

I thought she drowned at the beginning and the movie was a dream sequence while she was in a coma.

Why else would he fly her into the sky whilst she waved goodbye after singing a song about always being together 30 seconds before?

That's just a fan theory though. Not actual. A fan can put forward any theory and say it as fact that's what it meant.

JonnaSilvie Sat 11-Nov-17 08:23:12

I love fan theories, though. Very interesting. The Friends Phoebe one is chilling.

What's the friends phoebe one?

AlbusPercival Sat 11-Nov-17 08:26:33

What's the phoebe theory?

Just switch it off after 'You're the One that I Want' miss all the 'Ramalamadingdong' crap and the flying car.

I watched the story of Grease the other night the producer just wanted an over the top camp ending- I like it- I loved it when Queer as Folk paid homage to it too.

PumpkinSquash Sat 11-Nov-17 08:29:54

Almost afraid to ask, as I love Friends too, but what's the Phoebe theory?

MyGastIsFlabbered Sat 11-Nov-17 08:31:13

Hey, you want the Phoebe Friends theory you start your own thread! (Just kissing in case it wasn’t obvious).

TitsalinaBumSqoosh Sat 11-Nov-17 08:32:00

It must have been a coma induced fantasy because both Danny and Sandy and in fact the whole cast were about 10 years too old to be at high school ... and who doesn’t look younger, fitter and more beautiful in their dreams?

MyGastIsFlabbered Sat 11-Nov-17 08:32:20

Kidding not kissing!

Did anyone watch the program about the cast of Grease with Shane Ritchie (aka Shaven Quiche)? Program was interesting but my god was he annoying.

Phoebe was she was some kind of homeless addict busking across the road and she sat dreaming about being friends with the rest of them?

AlwaysHaveABobble Sat 11-Nov-17 08:38:05

Isn't the Phoebe theory that she's a drug addict, homeless person sleeping rough in Central Park and she spots the 'Friends' in the window of Central Perk and makes up a whole fantasy in her head to escape for her horrible life? So the whole Friends series is Phoebe's little fantasy world?

TheQueenOfWands Sat 11-Nov-17 08:41:41

I wish wish wish they'd film the alternative ending to friends.

Doesn't even need to be the same cast. Or set. But it needs to be done.

Ugh I hate the 'fan theories' they make up about things. Just let it be as it is.
I agree about the ending!
