Mannequin 2 is not lifeless, its' fun!
6 August 2005 | by inkblot11See all my reviews

Jessie (Kristy Swanson) is a peasant girl in love with a prince (William Ragsdale). His mother will have no engagement between her son and Jessie so she finds a sorcerer to turn her into a statue for 1,000 years. Fast Forward. Jason (also Ragsdale) is a new department store employee with the job of helping to bring the "peasant girl statue" to an exhibit at his store. Naturally, he finds a way to unlock the spell and turn Jessie into a real person. They enjoy a few brief days together (they even go dancing at a nightclub!) until, it seems, the spell is reworked. Is there someone else after Jessie, as a love interest? How will the course of true love be fulfilled? Fans of these sorts of films will be delighted to discover this one, especially girls and women of all ages. Swanson and Ragsdale are beautiful people with a talent for comedy, too...watching them is a very real pleasure. Costumes and scenery in New York are quite wonderful and the silly but fun plot is most appealing as well. Yes, teenage boys will cut this film to shreds, if they get their hands on it. But, hopeless romantics, after your purchase or borrow this film, keep it in a secure place. You will want to watch it whenever you need a trip to the fantasy land of romance.
