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.

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.

Could somebody please tell me why four scriptwriters were needed for Mannequin Two: On the Move?

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.

The plot is the same, only dumber.

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.

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

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.

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

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

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.

Like the 1987 original, Mannequin Two: On the Move is a movie made by, for and about dummies.

Let's face it. This whole movie is based on stereotypes.

They are amiable players, but they can't rise above the dreadful material.
