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

nice attempt...
23 March 2002 | by insomniac-rodSee all my reviews

"Mannequin 2" is not better than the original, but sure it's a great light comedy. I'd say that it's perfect to watch this movie with your sweetheart, or by yourself if you're in the mood for silly jokes, and a silly plot, but hey!!! you'll enjoy it.

William Ragsdale's role kinda reminded me his role in "Fright Night", he is dumb, but gets what he wants, but maybe it's just my imagination.

Kirsty Swanson looks great, and is OK, ... oh yeah, she was hot! mmmh Meshach Taylor gives the most homosexual performance in a 90's comedy movie. And Gail's character was OK because Julie Foreman is so pretty.

Don't expect too much of this movie, have a nice time watching it!
