** Rizzo, in the original play and 1978, zips from being a {{Jerkass}} to a [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold]] like a pinball. In this version, she is more established as the latter, as she is shown to be a bit more nicer to Sandy, even talking to her about changing after the climatic race. She even asks Kenickie to be careful before his race, despite their earlier fight.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalHeroism: The T-Birds gained more redeeming qualities in this version, especially Danny. Examples include being more kind and respectful to the Pink Ladies, and finally repaying Eugene for helping them win the race by welcoming him to their gang.

* TranquilFury: Danny spends a lot of the movie blustering, strutting, scuffling, and generally trying to look tough. Then Balmudo laughs at Kenickie's accident, and Danny gets very quiet. Balmudo's pinks were in Danny's pocket before they even got to the starting line.

Danny Zucco is back in Rydell High School for senior year. He's a bad boy who wears a leather jacket and hangs out with others who do the same. He tells his friends, the T-Birds (or the Burger Palace Boys, if you're going by the play), about the great summer vacation he had at the beach with this girl Sandy.

Sandy has just transferred to Rydell High and is trying to make friends, which happen to include the Pink Ladies. She is TheIngenue, and she is also a senior. She tells her side of the story at the same time. Then the other girls realize the fella she was with was ''Danny Zucco,'' and they take her to meet him. At that moment, he is more interested in maintaining his image than acting like the sensitive guy Sandy remembered, and she leaves broken-hearted.

They love each other. Can they get past their differences and get together before the end of senior year?

** All of the Greasers (with the exception of Danny) change into [[EverythingsBetterWithSparkles purple sequined jumpsuits]] during "Greased Lightning" and change back into their mechanic uniforms at the end of the number. Kenickie's ''car'' even gets a quick change during the number.
** "Those Magic Changes" is aptly named; Danny and Doody both go through several costume changes while the other is on screen.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: In the song "Greased Lightnin'", JohnTravolta's character rubs saran wrap against his crotch. This is supposedly a reference to the use of saran wrap as a condom. The lyrics of the song contain lines like "You know that ain't no shit/We'll be getting lots of tit"; "With new pistons plugs and shocks/I can get off my rocks/You know that I ain't braggin'/She's a real pussy wagon"; and of course "the chicks'll cream!"
