The Dose Girls don’t disagree about much, but when we do, it is quite devastating.
Not since the great Barry vs. Neil fight of 2012 have things been so heated over here.
argument intense debate friendly disagreement went down over the phone, because otherwise things may not have been pretty.
We each took a little time-out and gathered ourselves, because would it really be worth it to have a knock down, drag out fight over a couple movies?
Um, yeah. Because, duh, these two movies in question are not just any old movies. They are classics. They are life-changing. They are the stuff of childhood memories and career aspirations (if singing into a hairbrush could be considered a career).
Grease vs. Grease 2.
Turns out we are each very attached to our favorite version.
Lisa is a Grease fan, through and through. She and her best childhood friend used to take turns playing Sandy and Danny. Because Lisa was better at the lower register, she got stuck being Danny a lot, but even that did not dissuade her love of the movie.
Whereas, while I loved Grease (especially those insane leather pants at the end), I was more attached to Grease 2. My sister and I rented it from our local video store so many times one summer that I am pretty sure we would have been better off skipping the “be kind and rewind” step and just buying the movie outright.
When I suggested that we settle this battle the old fashioned way, i.e. making our beloved Dose Peeps pick their favorite and see who came out the victor, Lisa laughed out loud.
She said, and I quote, “We can, but only if you want to get trounced”.
She asked if perhaps I was still just stinging from the “Adele Dazeem” incident at the Oscars and maybe it was clouding my judgement. I will admit that my blood pressure does still go up whenever I think about, but honestly, whose doesn’t?
Really, though, I just loved Grease 2. Everything about it.
And Lisa feels exactly the same way about Grease.
So, we need you all to decide for us. There may even be a Starbucks (and eternal bragging rights, of course) riding on it, so think hard before you make your choice.
By the way, I can’t help the fact that the Grease 2 video is larger. I can only go off of what You Tube has to offer (and I think it is quite clear which movie they prefer). [What is that old saying? Good things come in small packages? Certainly true in this case. Besides, our Dose Peeps won’t let a little thing like video size keep them from picking the right answer.-Lisa]
It is now in your hands, and we anxiously await your answers. Tell us in the comments. Would you rather watch Grease or Grease 2?
