Fans of the movie 'Grease 2' have spotted a very explicit wardrobe malfunction in a scene from the 1982 movie, leaving viewers scratching their heads as to how it made its way into the final film.

The much criticised Grease 2 starring Michelle Pfeiffer and Maxwell Caulfield has become a cult classic after bombing at the box office in the early eighties.

After the runaway success of Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta as Sandy and Danny in the original Grease, it's not surprising that a sequel would face a lot of criticism.
