Movie Info

Flamboyant window dresser Hollywood Montrose (Meshach Taylor) provides the link between this film and the original Mannequin after the departure of Kim Cattrall and Andrew McCarthy from the cast. Hollywood has now been promoted to the head of Prince & Company's Visual Display Department.

Unfortunately, the recycled plot is still the driving force here, and the movie becomes increasingly frantic trying to accommodate it. In the end, Raffill can't bring this dummy to life, but he does try.

Beneath this slick variation on the Sleeping Beauty theme lies a male fantasy that would not withstand much hard psychological scrutiny.

From start to finish Mannequin Two: On the Move is insipid in the extreme.

It took four writers to struggle with another idea of why a mannequin would come to life in a department store and what would happen if she did.

Raffill's heavy-handed direction is jam-packed with product placement, and interrupted every ten seconds with yet another plug for a boring MOR rock song.

This film has enough new characters and independent spirit to have a light, cheery style of its own.

Sometimes talented filmmakers can pep up even the most hackneyed material with an infusion of energy and talent.

The script is so full of old gags it must have been chiselled on stone tablets, while Stewart Raffill's direction is a model example of how not to let the action get in the way of product placements.

Despite the presence of four credited screenwriters, the plot is a rehash of cliches and tired jokes.

It's as woefully incompetent as its predecessor, except it's dealing with a smaller budget, you know, for added dreadfulness.

The first one was so-so. This one is less so.

Plenty of eye candy, A healthy dose of laughs.

Mannequin 2 is so bad that you'd easily accept my supposition that the film was in fact directed by three spiders, a goat, and a dedicated gust of wind.

Audience Reviews for Mannequin 2: On the Move

A shop dummy that's been cursed to suffer a deep sleep for 1,000 years comes to life. The curse passes to me and fall into the deep sleep. Almost the same picture as before, only worse.

The idea of a sequel to Mannequin is a bit like contracting anthrax and then saying "Please sir, can I have some more?"

The misadventures with mannequins continue in Mannequin: On the Move. In this fish out of water tale a famous mannequin known as the Enchanted Peasant Girl is brought to life after a thousand year curse is lifted. William Ragsdale and Kristy Swanson lead the cast and have good chemistry together. However, most of the characters (particularly the villains) are overly cartoonish and cliched. Additionally, the comedy quickly devolves into juvenile, slapstick humor that isn't very funny. A pathetic imitation of the original, Mannequin: On the Move is a formulaic piece of tripe that's rather joyless.
