One of those feel good movies...
9 August 2003 | by orient_celtsSee all my reviews

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, a descendant of the Sorcerer from the middle ages. Through the course of the movie, Jason and Hollywood teamed up to help free Jessie from the Count who at the end swallowed 'his' own medicine -he was petrified when the amulet was 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 was first released and ten yrs later, I still enjoyed watching the film which was aired last week on cable. I liked the idea of the 'what if' scenario, of an individual trapped for many years in a form of a mannequin and that love will find its way to that person again to set Jessie free.

I have seen the first Mannequin movie, unfortunately, it didn't pique my interest unlike the sequel. I didn't quite understand how an Egyptian princess could end up as a mannequin.
