The movie was shot in California. Paramount Pictures released it. It has a great soundtrack including songs like Grease, We go together, Freddy my love, Summer nights and You’re the one that I want. A dance mix of songs form the movie Grease was released in 1997 and the movie was re-released in 1998. The movie was also re=released due to the 20th anniversary of the original one. Grease had a lot of critiques about the acting and the singing but despite that it was still a big hit.
In this link there is a scene where they are singing You’re the one that I like. I think it gives a good overview of the movie.
