Newt's movie review

This is an awesome parody of almost every 50s movie made. It's got leather jackets, great cars, rival gangs, those singing moments, and an amazingly hilarious subplot revolving around Traci Lords and her Square parents.

This gives Grease a poke in the eye and makes for a tolerable musical. And I love that the lead Square is named Baldwin. Check it out.
