10 God-Awful Scenes In Otherwise Perfect Movies
9. The Car Flies Away - Grease
Easily ranking as one of, if not the greatest teen comedy/musical of all time, Grease is still as cherished today as it was back when it first drove into fans' lives all those years ago in 1978.
However, there has always been one specific moment that even the most passionate T-Bird and Pink Lady has struggled to get their heads around. That being exactly what in the hell was happening at the very end of the flick when Danny and Sandy took driving off into the sunset to a whole new level.
Despite the rest of the flick largely playing out like a fairly grounded love story, outside of the odd Beauty School Drop-Out and Grease Lightning tune, the fairground conclusion sees the lovebirds dance through various rides with their pals before eventually hopping into a car and literally flying away from the gang.
Now admittedly, this is a movie realm where folks regularly burst out into song and occasionally transform an entire garage with a smoothly edited cut. But even with that being the case, watching the leading lights suddenly blast off into some clouds late on still feels like it belongs in an entirely different film and has become something a beloved god-awful joke of a final sequence at this stage.
