The cool riders themselves, Allen and Chris turn back the hands of time and discuss notorious flop Grease 2.

The original Grease has become a classic, rediscovered by every generation while the  songs from the soundtrack are burned into the pop culture consciousness. Grease 2 is the film that made Maxwell Caulfield the star he is today.

However this much maligned sequel has been garnering a cult of late, has history been kind to Grease 2 or is it better forgotten?  

We talk about Michelle Pfeiffer in her first big role (as head Pink Lady, Stephanie), Christopher McDonald's agelessness, the dodgy sexual politics of the T Birds and we answer the question that has plagued man since the dawn of time....

Where does the pollen go?
