>GREASE Going back to see Grease, rereleased for its 20th anniversary, is like leafing through your high school yearbook. It's great fun, but you wouldn't want to live through that again. The film is still a bubble-gum musical delight, but you're more aware of Grease as an ersatz look at the '50s as filtered through a '70s sensibility. The passing years have only polished the shine on John Travolta's virile, snake-hipped turn as the film's greaseball heartthrob and Stockard Channing's almost too knowing take on Rizzo, Rydell High's baddest bad girl. (PG)

Bottom Line: A blast from the past
