"Polyester? What plant is that from?"

Sequel to Mannequin has little in common with the first movie, outside of Meshach Taylor's character Hollywood and the Jefferson Starship song played at the end. A lot of people hated the first Mannequin but I'm one of its fans. It's a movie that never fails to bring a smile to my face, despite its perceived faults. This one is not as good, for a variety of reasons, but it is watchable fluff. It recycles some elements from the first movie but goes in its own direction with the cursed necklace and all that. It's not very funny but there are some laughs here and there. The romance this time doesn't work as well due to the bland chemistry between William Ragsdale and Kristy Swanson. Despite this, both of them are cute and fun individually. Terry Kiser is amusing as the villain. Meshach Taylor aggressively steals every scene he's in. The trio of German bodybuilding guys are very lame. I assume they were put in this because Hans & Franz was a thing on Saturday Night Live back then. Aside from "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now", this is a terrible soundtrack. The gagworthy "Can't Believe My Eyes" by Gene Miller (who?) is just one of the tacky songs in this. If you liked Mannequin, give this one a shot but keep expectations low. Oh, and be prepared for a surprising fate for one of the characters. I doubt you'll see it coming.
