Jonathan Switcher is a young artist. He just doesn't seem to last in any job he does. But when he builds a mannequin, he makes it so perfect, he falls in love with it. It is the first thing he has made that makes him feel like a real artist. The mannequin ends up in the window of a big department store. When he saves the life of an old lady who happens to be the owner of that store, he is rewarded by getting a job at the store as stock boy. Later the mannequin comes to life as Emmy, who was an ancient Egyptian living in the year 2514BC. The two redesign the window display to make it most eye catching in town. The store competitors are not happy and will do anything to stop them!Written by

Towards the end of the movie, Hollowood holds off several security guards with a fire-hose, hosing them down and completely soaking them for at least 5 minutes. However, when the water is turned off and the guards burst into the store room, all their uniforms are dry and many appear to be freshly pressed. See more »
[Jonathan is explaining to Roxie about the first time Emmy came to life]
You could've decided to tell me that you wanted to stand me up. Instead you come here to be lying with this ridiculous story!
I'm not lying. I'm insane.

I liked this movie. Andrew McCarthy is a classic 80's actor, paired with another 80's co-star James Spader in a cute comedy about a mannequin who comes to life. The music is cool, and it is a cute love story. Meshach Taylor is hilarious as Hollywood, the other window dresser. Watch if you are in the mood for an 80's flick.
