A friend of mine helped me come up with this idea to watch 15 seconds of the beginning, middle and end of a movie and try to guess what the plot is. So I’m going to try it for a few posts. Because why not?
I’m going to start with Grease because it’s on Netflix and I’ve never seen it and apparently it’s quite popular. I don’t know what it’s about, though I feel like it shouldn’t be that hard to guess. Also, I should add it’s gonna be the first 15 seconds of the actual movie, not the opening stuff, (like Paramount and their shiny mountain.) Here we go!
First 15 seconds:
Water hits rocks and two people (who look pretty fit) are running on the beach. They stop. They hug. They kiss.
A woman with pink hair is sitting on a white couch being serenaded by a man in what looks like an Elvis outfit. He is surrounded by girls with foil on their heads. He’s singing to her. Her name is Annie and he’s telling her to get movin. She looks both surprised and… happy?
John Travolta and some blonde are driving away in a car while being sung to by a bunch of teenagers. I have no idea what they’re saying, but John Travolta and the blonde look happy. The car starts… flying? The blonde is smiling and waving to the people.. down below?
Based on the 45 seconds I saw, this movie is about a couple who enjoy the beach, and kissing on said beach. Their friend Annie, however, does not like to do this and so a friend tries to convince her (with the help of some alien women) to “get movin” like her hot friends and frolic on the beach as well. Annie does not make another appearance at the end of the movie, so I must assume she remains unconvinced of the thrills of beach frolicking. Her nameless hot friends decide to take up residence on another planet in their flying car, likely a planet made solely of beaches. I suspect that is where the singing alien women are from.
Would I watch it?
No. I, like Annie, remain unconvinced.

Nah, I’m kidding, nobody cares. I just wanted to sound like a YouTuber for a second.
