Overview

In Mannequin, a lame attempt to revive the style and panache of fantasy-tinged romantic comedies of the '30s and '40s, Andrew McCarthy stars as a department store window-dresser who discovers that one of his mannequins (Kim Cattrall) is actually a woman from ancient Egypt when she becomes animated one evening. She then inspires him to become the most expressive window-dresser the business has ever seen. Of course, there is intrigue involving a rival department store's attempt to drive the good guys out of business, and together the two store-crossed lovers must combat the forces of evil to save the day. There is no real mystery about what will happen in the course of the film; it all seems color-by-numbers. The only thing unique about Mannequin is its uniquely bad and illogical script, which has holes larger than the Grand Canyon. Mannequin was a surprise box-office hit, earning nearly 25 million dollars in just under a month of its release -- no small feat considering its miniscule budget and seeming lack of appeal to any particular demographic. It spawned an inferior sequel, Mannequin Two: On the Move, reaffirming the belief that anything is possible. In spite of being panned by critics across the board, it did manage to receive one accolade -- its theme, "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now," was nominated by the Academy for Best Song.

This movie was absolutely fabulous! The main actors (Andrew McCarthy & Kim Cattrall)were perfect for those roles. It also had a neat plot, and the acting was awesome. It is just one of those movies that make you feel good after watching it. "Mannequin" also had amazing performances by Estelle Getty, James Spader, Mesach Taylor, G.W. Bailey,& Carole Davis. This movie has to be my all time favorite!

I remember when I first saw this movie I wished I owned it so I could watch it over and over again. Kim was fantastic in this movie and Andrew was as well! It was so cute and pure and innocent, like most of our fave 80s movie turned out...that perfect happy ending. The originality of the story is untouched by the replication movies we have today and that montage...who could forget that. By far, one of my top five moments in the film and Hollywood of course! Some other familiar faces not to miss are Estelle Getty-everyone should own The Golden Girls, and James Spader who is an on-screen chameolon...I can't decide whether he was more of a jerk in this movie or in Pretty in Pink-great performances all around. A good time movie!
