Mannequin 2: On The Move
24 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't know what that first commenter was thinking when he/she said that about this movie. Actually he/she has a point. Most movies that are 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 very convincing gay man and is really good at the role of Hollywood Montross. If there was to be one role that is to be returning to this plot, Hollywood would be the best one. I actually liked the chemistry between Jason Williamson and Lady Jesse more than Andrew McCarthy and Kim Catrall. This one was a much sweeter movie because it had sweeter parts. 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 she was 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 a little more sense how they had her come from Britain whereas Kim Catrall came from Egypt? That doesn't make sense. Plus the ending swordfight, was a good touch. Loved it. Too bad they don't make it on DVD. PLEASE TELL ME WHERE I CAN FIND IT ON DVD. THANK YOU!
