I don't know what that first commenter was thinking when he/she saidthat about this movie. Actually he/she has a point. Most movies thatare original should NOT have sequels made for them. For example,Mission Impossible. But, this movie, although I loved the first one,actually liked this one better. I think Mesach Taylor plays a veryconvincing gay man and is really good at the role of HollywoodMontross. If there was to be one role that is to be returning to thisplot, Hollywood would be the best one. I actually liked the chemistrybetween Jason Williamson and Lady Jesse more than Andrew McCarthy andKim Catrall. This one was a much sweeter movie because it had sweeterparts. Like how they shared a slow dance in that club. That was one.How he took her in mannequin mode all over, even ate with her when shewas that way. That combined with the song "I Can't Believe My Eyes",that rendition was the sweetest one I've ever heard. It just made alittle more sense how they had her come from Britain whereas KimCatrall came from Egypt? That doesn't make sense. Plus the endingswordfight, was a good touch. Loved it. Too bad they don't make it onDVD. PLEASE TELL ME WHERE I CAN FIND IT ON DVD. THANK YOU!
Mannequin 2 manages to remove whatever might have been enjoyable in theoriginal Mannequin. Amazingly, this makes the first movie look positivelybrilliant. Poor Meschach Taylor makes a valiant try to instill some senseoffun into this heaped pile of steaming film, but is unsuccessful. Themovieattempts to climax in a "zany chase scene" tm, but by that time, youcannotpossibly care how it ends, as though there was ever any question.Costumesbad, script bad, Kristy Swanson manages to seem vaguely charming, as doesthe Herman's Head guy. All in all, I would recommend chewing off your legto escape this one.
People like me who've seen the first one know that this one was nothing but a money making ploy by the movie producers & people at the company. (Artisan Ent.??) THe first one had humor, heart, and that loveable, bumbling Felix & his dog Rambo. The sequel--if you can call it that--is unoriginal, unimaginative, and downright boring. They reused the same theme from the first movie. How unoriginal is that!!! If there was a 0 on the rating system that would be my real rating for this movie. A BIG FAT 0!!
Some movies do not need or should have a sequel .This is a prime example ofthat .I loved Mannequin and it is an 80's fun time .But it did not have enough for a sequel ,plot being rather silly as in theoriginal but the leads do not have the same energy or charisma as cattralland mccarthy.Mesach Taylor comes off as a rather annoying queen instead ofthe funny one in the original. I give it no stars because itstinks..
Same plot... different characters... over the top fantasy plot... overacting... "Mannequin On The Move" is an uncalled for sequel to apopular romantic comedy. It was obvious that a sequel was on it's waybut my real question is: "why did it take 4 years to produce thissequel?". There isn't real effort in my opinion.Still, the movie is entertaining , pop corn entertaining. MeshachTaylor returns as well as the ultra flamboyant Hollywood. His characteris probably the most likable in the movie. Not that William Ragsdale orKristy Swanson are not good but Taylor steals the show. Talking aboutthe lead couple, I felt that Ms. Swanson wasn't very natural in herrole. She's extremely cute and had this "girl I would like to protect"personality but she lacks of a vibe. Ragsdale (a different kind of heroin "Fright Night") delivers a less usual performance as a geeky hero.It works. Terry Kiser of "Weekend At Bernie's " fame delivers an overthe top performance but strangely enough, it works for the movie. Ah, what the heck. Give a chance to this sequel and you might have agood time if you are into the post 80's mess. It's a cheesy movie witha happy ending. You can't go wrong.
The first 'Mannequin' film was a brilliant piece of cinema, and those fanshoping for a repeat dose of the action, romance, and comedy of the originalmay be disappointed by this sequel. William Ragsdale, of "Herman's Head"fame is believable in the lead role, but, to be honest, cannot hold a candleto Andrew McCarthy, while Kirsty Swanson does not have the same vim andvigour as Kim Cattrell. Meshach Taylor, reprising his comical role ofHollywood, provides relief from a plot that is, to say the least, crazy.Terry Kaiser, recognisable from that other Andrew McCarthy classic, "WeekendAt Bernie's", tries his hardest, but with the material he is given to workwith, his efforts seem a little wasted. A tip? Go past this film and rentthe original, and relive one of the best films of the 1980s.
I first saw this movie when I was about 10 years old, and it quicklybecame one of my favorites. These days, I'd probably dismiss it as purekitsch. But there's something about this silly sequel that hasundeniable charm.The film begins in the ancient Bavarian kingdom of Hauptmann-Koenig,where the dashing (if naive) Prince William romances the lovely (andeven more naive) peasant girl Jessie. The happy pair are on their wayto elope when they're ambushed by a group of soldiers, led by William'smother, the evil queen, and a dastardly sorcerer who quite literallytwirls his mustache in his interpretation of a cartoonish villain. Thequeen tricks William into bestowing a jeweled necklace upon hisbeloved, which, unbeknownst to the prince, has been cursed with a spellfrom the sorcerer, which dooms the peasant girl to be transformed intowood, until 1000 years have passed, or until she meets "her true lovefrom another land." Fast forward 1000 years (almost), and we meet youngJason Williamson (presumably a direct descendant of Prince William),starting his first day as assistant to Hollywood Montrose at Prince andCo. His first assignment is to assist Hollywood in the newest exhibitat the store -- none other than Hauptmann-Koenig's "Enchanted PeasantGirl," as she is now known, under the possession of Count Spretzle (whowe learn is descended from the sorcerer who placed the curse).Spretzle's plan to spirit the reanimated peasant girl off to Bermuda isfoiled when she awakens earlier than scheduled thanks to Jason, whoremoves the necklace. Upon awakening, Jessie is instantly smitten withJason, whom she initially mistakes for Prince William. The two embarkon a series of misadventures, with Count Spretzle and his three goonishbodyguards being the only obstacle to their happily ever after.The strongest thing about this film is actually the cast. Thedual-casting was the best choice for tying the two story linestogether. William Ragsdale is hardly tolerable as Prince William, butgeekishly charming as Jason. Cynthia Harris is wickedly likable as boththe evil Queen and Jason's mom. But truly the best of these dualcharacters is Terry Kiser as the sorcerer and Count Spretzle. The Countis perhaps as threatening as a ten year-old with a squirt gun, but histantrums and ridiculous dialog somehow only serve to make him that muchmore enjoyable. Stuart Pankin also puts in a passable performance asthe gruff, perfectionist store manager Mr. James. The film has itsweaknesses, most notably the absolute disconnect with any kind ofreality, although a willing suspension of disbelief is absolutely vitalto being able to sit through a film about a 1000 year-old mannequin.Therefore, the movie is best watched when you're not expecting toomuch. The DVD is often packaged with the first "Mannequin" film; I'drecommend watching both back-to-back whenever you're in the mood for acampy 80's fix.
HOLLYWOOD MONTROSE.Holllywood Montrose is outrageous. Such an outrageous guy. I mean what anoutrageous character. He was so outrageous. I could not get over just howoutrageous he was.I have seen many outrageous characters in my time but H. Montrose is theking (or is that queen) of outrageousnessnes. If they had an Oscar foroutrageous characters(which i think that we are all agreed they should) thenMontrose i think should win for being so outrageous.Anytime i see an outrageous character i will think of Hollywood Montrose.And they should put a picture of Hollywood Montrose's face beside the wordoutrageous in the dictionary. His antics in this film are particularlyoutrageous. It all adds up to an outrageous experience.Gi' me a break. This film is frickin' sh!t. Its like snorting acid, pouringpetrol in your eyes, putting an electric drill in your ear and then smokinga cigarette laced with rubber. It should never have been made and any fansof it are lunatics.Thank you for your time!
"Mannequin" was a likable guilty pleasure that worked because of its two leads, this totally unneeded sequel is void of humour(the most important thing) and talent(extremely important)this is really 90 minutes of pure misery, catch this one if you must if you can't sleep.
Although not very well received at the box office or by critics, MannequinTwo has, in my opinion, outdone its predecessor, 1987's Mannequin. Itsonlyconnection to the original, with the obvious exception of the mannequinstoryline, is the hilarious Meschach Taylor, who reprises his role asoutrageous sidekick Hollywood Montrose. The story, with itstime-travellingcharacters and medeival sorcery, does require a bit of imagination - it'sdefinitely not realistic fiction, which is what I think possibly destroyedit when it was released. In and of itself it is a sweet and humorous storyabout a love that transcends the ages, and it would be unfair to compareitto the dull original. William Ragsdale makes the perfect prince, andKristySwanson fits quite nicely into the beautiful, innocent peasant girl role.Itis a film to be enjoyed by all ages, and whether you're looking foradventure, comedy, or romance, Mannequin Two:On the Move will surelydeliver.
I found this film a thrill to watch. I never intended to watch it but oneday it was on and I decided to give it a go. I have not seen the originaland I had not even heard of it. But when I got in to this story I foundveryentertaining. The characters are wonderful. Kristy Swanson is beautiful asthe mannequin. Hollywood is hilarious. I also like the lead character as alot of people, maybe myself can relate to him. After Watching it I rate itas my favourite Romantic Comedy. It is one that the whole family canenjoy.I would highly recommend it as a film worth watching.
...that a certain mannequin in a department store like Macy's orsomeplace else that you think is so extremely attractive that you wishthat she or he was in human form? This movie, which is the sequel tothe other movie made four years before, does all of that. In fact, bothmovies have that happening! Hahahahaha!!!!! I will not go any furtherwith this, because I don't want to leave too much out for this movie.All I ask y'all to do is to go see both of these movies and give this aten! And the next time you're in the mall and you see a mannequin, you,too, will wish the same thing that's happening in both of these movies!My score: 10 out of 10!
This is a classic movie in my mind. It has action, comedy, and a love story. I would recommend it to anyone to see at least once. It finally comes out on DVD in April '08. Give it a shot.
Even though this is a pretty badly made movie, it's something that Ijust enjoyed when I was a kid. I think because I was in my princess and"damsel in distress" phase.Watching this movie now, it is pretty ridicules. I mean, the wholehistory back flash in the beginning, now I know this is a movie and itis supposed to be fairy tale like, but the peasant girl having abeautiful dress and cape with perfect hair and make up? Just didn'tmake sense. The knights were complete wusses when in real life theywere trained to take a sword through a gut and continue in battle.And the acting, yes it's pretty bad. But again, this was just somethingthat I enjoyed as a kid. For the kids, just let them have fun with it.But as a movie for adults in a serious train of mind, just ignore it.4/10
The movie's title was apt since Jessie, the peasant girl turned Mannequin,this time was on the run (in the modern times) away from Count Sprezle, adescendant of the Sorcerer from the middle ages. Through the course of themovie, Jason and Hollywood teamed up to help free Jessie from the Countwhoat the end swallowed 'his' own medicine -he was petrified when the amuletwas set on his neck until true love releases him from the spell.The film was enjoyable to a 16 yr old high school student when it wasfirstreleased and ten yrs later, I still enjoyed watching the film which wasaired last week on cable. I liked the idea of the 'what if' scenario, ofanindividual trapped for many years in a form of a mannequin and that lovewill find its way to that person again to set Jessie free.I have seen the first Mannequin movie, unfortunately, it didn't pique myinterest unlike the sequel. I didn't quite understand how an Egyptianprincess could end up as a mannequin.
In contrast to many posters here, I enjoyed this movie very much, andhad a number of laugh-out-loud moments. I see it is listed here as anUSA production, but the DVD I have starts with the classic RankOrganization gong man.. which I've seen so often introducing mostlydecent British films. Also, the medieval scenes had a strong taste ofMonty Python's items set in the same period, so I was under theimpression I was watching a Britfilm.That impression was even heightened with Jason's drive to work - havingbreakfast, brushing teeth, dressing while driving, and ultimatelyremoving the steering wheel - which to me were almost literal quotesfrom Mr. Bean (TV).Oh, just some of the little things that made me laugh: the toy race-carJessie parked before Jason's house, and a policewoman just applying aparking ticket...or the first dialog between Jessie and Jason, which briefly upholds thenotion that Jessie can only speak German: "Ah-choo!" - "Gesundheit!" -"DankeschÃ¶n!" Ah, such little details can cheer up my eveningconsiderably, it doesn't always have to be a huge hot-air balloon(though that was cool too, right through to the street-cleaning and thefinal Hauptmann-KÃ¶nig museum scene).This is of course a silly, childish film, but I as 52-year-old malecould definitely enjoy it. I know I'll re-watch it when I'm in thatparticular mood, and for now give it 8/10.
i think part 2 is better then part 1. The actors are good and reall funny. Esecially those three bodygaurds
Terrible sequel that compliments its awful predecessor very well. Bothfilmsare trials to sit through. This one may be just slightly better with thealways funny Terry Kiser, but overall this is another dud of epicproportions as another mannequin (Kristy Swanson) comes to life and fallsinlove with a hapless department store worker (William Ragsdale this time).Meshach Taylor also returns as a very gay co-worker. Once again, just atotal waste of time and film. A pure mess. Turkey (0 stars out of 5).
I thought this movie was better than the original. It had more feeling toit. I did like the original though and I thought the sequel could havehada more original title, but that's the only thing I disliked about themovie.I liked Jesse a lot. She was very deep and also beautiful in body andspirit. The fairy tale aspect was good too. I liked the scene where shewasdancing and teaching the people in the club 1000 year old dancing andtheythought it was cool. Yes, bring back the ancient ways I say! AndHollywood!What a character! I liked him a lot too - and the prince was cute!!!Bravo!A great feel good movie! I wonder if the curse on the Jesse's homecountryhas lifted now that She is back with her Prince! :)
It was good. And has the actress from Adventures in Babysitting which one of my fave movies growing up, but I still luv the first more.
