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

User Reviews

Even unfunnier than the first.
13 June 2003 | by gridoonSee all my reviews

You know where you stand with "Mannequin 2" early on, when you find out that the unfunniest character of the original has returned - and he has a bigger role to boot! The "romance" part of the film is still kind of sweet, but Ragsdale is no Andrew McCarthy, and Kristy Swanson, unlike Kim Cattrall, doesn't bring any personality to her character; she's beautiful but bland. In fact, that's the word that most accurately sums up the movie: bland. Its comic invention extends to "funny" accents, homosexual gags and chases in toy cars. If you like this sort of thing, go for it. (*1/2)
