A surprisingly sweet and funny fairytale - better than the original.
4 August 1999 | by MarahnnaSee all my reviews

Although not very well received at the box office or by critics, Mannequin Two has, in my opinion, outdone its predecessor, 1987's Mannequin. Its only connection to the original, with the obvious exception of the mannequin storyline, is the hilarious Meschach Taylor, who reprises his role as outrageous sidekick Hollywood Montrose. The story, with its time-travelling characters and medeival sorcery, does require a bit of imagination - it's definitely not realistic fiction, which is what I think possibly destroyed it when it was released. In and of itself it is a sweet and humorous story about a love that transcends the ages, and it would be unfair to compare it to the dull original. William Ragsdale makes the perfect prince, and Kristy Swanson fits quite nicely into the beautiful, innocent peasant girl role. It is a film to be enjoyed by all ages, and whether you're looking for adventure, comedy, or romance, Mannequin Two:On the Move will surely deliver.
