GREASE is a musical romance, set in the 1950s, about a pair of teenagers who fall in love despite their differences.

Sex

A group of girls taunt their friend for being a 'virgin'. There are some jokes about a woman's large breasts. There is an undetailed allusion to masturbation when a woman asks a young man if he is going to ‘flog

the log’. A couple talk about contraception as they kiss on the back seat of a car. It is later implied that they had unprotected sex when the woman thinks she might be pregnant.

Language

Mild bad language includes uses of 'shit', 'crap' and 'pussy'.

Various teen characters are seen smoking cigarettes.
