Andrew McCarthy and Kim Cattrall star in this comic farce about a ne'er-do-well stock boy who falls in love with a department story mannequin that is actually an ancient Egyptian princess. McCarthy plays Jonathan, a hapless stooge who can't seem to hold on to a job, or his girlfriends. He finally lands a job at a Philadelphia department store, Prince & Co. At the store, he meets a collection of wacky characters, including belligerently gay window designer Hollywood (Meshach Taylor), cool and scheming store manager Richards (James Spader), and Felix (G.W. Bailey), a fascistic security guard. And of course, there is Emmy (Kim Cattrall), the Egyptian princess/window dummy. Jonathan begins an affair with Emmy, who can only turn into a real woman when she is wrapped in her lover's embrace. But inanimate romance has to be put on hold as Jonathan comes to the rescue of Prince & Co. when they are threatened with a hostile takeover by rival store Illustra. Jonathan, with the help of Emmy, concocts eye-catching window displays that draw the customers to Prince & Co. But Illustra won't give up the takeover bid that easily. … More

Critic Reviews for Mannequin
One of the stupidest movies ever conceived... its very off-the-wall shoddiness is astounding.
Dirigido com frouxidão e contando com um roteiro que certamente não foi revisado, o filme é claramente datado, o que, de certa forma, até lhe confere certo charme.
silly and endearing
Blandly likable romantic comedy fantasy.
Mannequin's not even good enough to be a "guilty pleasure". I'm mortified to admit that I ever liked it.
Audience Reviews for Mannequin
Sweet, funny, and awfully touching movie. Andrew McCarthy is GREAT!!!!!!! This is one of my fave 80s movies :) Kim Cattrall is just sweet too and adorable :)More
First of all, this was a remake of the 40s movie One Touch of Venus, and second, if you watch this movie beware that it is extremely cheesy and not in a good way. The actors are okay, but their dialogue is lame, and so is the script. On top of that the overall plot is pretty stupid. I do not recommend this movie whatsoever.More
