What kind of name is that? Thats going down as one of the stupider "__ Edition" out there. For a movie like Grease, theres plenty of better names out there.

Yeah, apparently the "What Is This... a Gangbang? Edition" is being saved for the 30th anniversary.

So now the question comes, will those of us who are in a relationship or have a significant other buy this for ourselves, or because we must? Luckily I am currently seeing a woman who thinks Grease is stupid, so I'm omitted.

Jeez, that's bad. Wouldn't something like "The one that you want" edition be better?

Picky picky picky!

The name is not as bad as it could have been.

I'm glad I never got the first release though and knew the SE would come eventually.

I thought the Beavis & Butt-head SE nickname was clever, but this one is not.

Certainly "Grease: You're The One That I Want Edition" could've sounded better, if any cheesier.

Considering it's two years late, I don't give a crap what it's called just as long as it comes out.

Compared with the first release, the only new items I'd be remotely interested in are the deleted scenes. This looks like a rental... but we'll see.

Finally! Hopefully the reviews will be better than the original release, I've really wanted to own this for quite a while, but wasn't willing to put up with the inferior initial release.

i wonder if the transfer will be improved, since the current version doesn't look too great (its based on an early dvd transfer that was made after the theatrical rerelease.)

Okay, I'm a girl, and even I thought that was hilarious!

Grease: The Guy Who Usually Comes Up With Our Special Edition Names Was Just Kicked Directly In The Balls So He Couldn't Come Up With A Name For This One Edition

Considering some of these names, I'm willing to bet it's not a guy doing it.
