Things in Grease you only notice as an adult
Grease is an institution. Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey's original 1971 musical was so popular it was adapted into a movie just seven years after its inception. A movie that was better and more life-changing than it had any right to be. There are those who scoffed at Chicago's Best Picture Oscar win but Grease is cheesier, sillier, and far more resonant, even 40 years later.
Women of a certain age will have watched it over and over again throughout their lives, sharing in-jokes with friends, family members, and colleagues. Now, another generation is discovering the movie, and the stage show from which it was adapted, thanks in at least small part to Grease: Live. The full-scale TV production was loaded with glitz and glamour, giving Grease a modern tint. As with any older (read: classic) movie, though, there are certain things that go over our heads as kids and young adults. Certain moments that begin to take on a grander meaning as society changes and grows. These are all the things in Grease you only notice as an adult.
