The flamboyant Hollywood Montrose is promoted to head window dresser at Prince and Company department store. Hollywood hires his new assistant Jason Williamson, who in a past life was the prince of the Hauptmann-Koenig kingdom. Prince and Company plans to display a mannequin known as the Enchanted Peasant Girl in celebration of the kingdom. And Jason has a nagging feeling he has seen this mannequin somewhere before. Removing a necklace from the mannequin reveals that the Enchanted Peasant Girl is really Jessie, the love of his past life who was placed under a thousand year spell by an evil sorcerer. Their rekindled romance is not without its challenges when the evil sorcerer reappears in his descendant Count Gunther Spretzle, who has plans of his own for Jessie. But Jessie must receive a kiss from her one true love to break free from the curse before Count Spretzle finds her. Written by MGM/UA Home Video

A somewhat underrated adorable film
17 August 2018 | by carlmyers-80296See all my reviews

Featuring the delicious Kristy Swanson this film is a sequel to the quite popular film Mannequin. A queen in some ancient times is cursed with a necklace that transforms her into a statue and she is then somehow transported to the real world where she(the statue) is kept in a warehouse. A guy accidently takes off the necklace and she comes to life. This is a harmless fun kind of film although it was torn apart by critics on release. William Ragsdale(wonder why he never hit it big) is the main lead opposite Swanson and they make a sweet couple. Watch this if you have nothing better to do but it is cute.
