Product Description

Andrew McCarthy plays a department store window dresser. One night, whilst working on a window, one of the mannequins comes to life and is in fact a woman (Kim Catrall) from ancient Egypt. This woman then inspires him to create the most amazing window displays (and fall in love with her), prompting a rival store to find out where the ideas are coming from. The theme tune by Starship 'Noting's Gonna Stop Us Now' was nominated for an Oscar.

From Amazon.co.uk

Made in 1987, Mannequin represents everything that was naff about late-80s Hollywood: from its bland, boxy, electro-rock soundtrack to its sub-Sarah Ferguson fashion sense to its tawdry sets, flimsy characterisation and cheap slapstick humour (including the mandatory amusing dog). It might be centuries before its radioactive awfulness dies down enough to make it watchable, even as kitsch. Mannequin is notionally a romantic comedy in which Andrew McCarthy plays a luckless department store employee and Kim (Sex and the City) Cattrall is an Egyptian Princess reincarnated as a shop window dummy, who comes to life when she encounters McCarthy, only to revert to mannequin status when anyone but McCarthy is watching her. With her encouragement, he becomes emboldened in his career as a window decorator as well as falling in love with the Princess. James Spader's oily, stammery executive is just one of the many examples of a film that tries way too hard to be funny, the sort of characterisation that would be barely adequate for a comic TV ad, let alone a 90-minute movie. Still, for fans of Sex and the City who might want to feast upon the spectacle of a younger Kim Cattrall, Mannequin might offer a measure of relief.

On DVD: Mannequin on disc has just the original trailer as an extra, while no amount of DVD enhancement can conceal the tawdry feel of this movie. --David Stubbs

I'll start bluntly by saying that I'm a man. That's to no surprise, as you've guessed from my username, but I just thought i'd point this out as the lads I know have laughed at me for buying this on DVD, believing it to be more of a chic flic. All I can say is, Screw them! I've loved this film since I was a kid!
The 80's was a... hmm, 'diverse' time for films. You look at such momentous movies, and then their is the selection towards the end of the decade that could be cheesy enough to make a mouse fat. However, I want to make it clear that I love cheesy films, despite certain peoples arrogance towards them because they take them too seriously (their own fault). But of course, their is no escaping the fact that Mannequin falls into the category of borderline criminal when it comes to amateur acting. From the many times i've watched it however over the past decade or so, I can recall this being the only 'cringing' part of the film. But hey, that's what makes a good cheesy film! Why didn't they just create a separate genre for films like these?
The plot has always for me had a real awe about it - something you can go to bed at night dreaming about, because it's so special. Unfortunately, in low budget style, it's a rushed animation during the credits that reveals how Emmy became a 'Mannequin', but rest assured it has never made an impact on how I've watched this film! To be honest, it would have still been nice even if Emmy the Mannequin had just suddenly come to life. But the writers decided that her origins lay back in Egypt; 2000 and something years B.C. With the haziness of these peoples history, the story tells us that Emmy has the power to go back and forth through and time, and that eventually, she ended up in 1987 in the form of a Mannequin, where the film starts.

Okay, I admit it...this is my 2nd all time fave film. I've ben watching it since I was a kid and love it!!! This werid but wondefully funny romantic comedy about a drop out artist & what happens when a store window mannequin which he built, fell in love with, and can't seem to get over; comes to life!
Kim catrall is at her acting best as Emmy, an Eyptian who has been bouncing around time looking for her one true love. Andrew McCarthy is wonderfull as the slightly bumbling Jonathan Switcher. James Spader makes one of his rare comic appearances as McCarthy's boss, and a wondefull supporting cast makes this a must have chick-flick!!!
All I can say is buy it now!

Reading the Amazon.co.uk reviews you'd think this was one of the worst films ever: it's not. When my kids were small they wore out the VHS tape of it, and although now long grown up and left home they rushed to buy this when it came out on DVD.

It is cheerful, funny, decorative, has a coherent (if unbelievable) plot and above all has real a 'feel-good' essence about it. It is a lovely modern fairy tale. No wonder it has turned into a cult classic.

And it is certainly one of the best and most popular things that Kim Catrall has ever done.

The poor review given by Amazon's reviewers say far more about them than about the film.

I've read many reviews of the supposedly awful Mannequin, and how refreshing it was to discover that I wasn't the only one who thought it was brilliant!!! Mannequin is a hugely enjoyable, very funny, massively original film, which appeals to the old romantic in us all. Mannequin benefits immensely from the lovely on-screen chemistry supplied by the charming Andrew McCarthy (you can't NOT like him) and the ever-smiling Kim Cattrall, in the lead roles as love-struck, window-dressing genius Jonathan Switcher and reincarnated Egyptian princess turned mannequin, Emmy. There's a wonderfully over-the top performance provided by Meshach Taylor as 'Hollywood' and the slapstick pairing of Felix the security guard and the super-smarmy Richards, is pure, on-screen magic. This film has it all - great performances, a sing-along soundtrack, an original plot, villains you love to hate, someone for both the guys and girls to swoon over, even an exciting finale, with huge smackings of comedy, romance and fantasy. Mannequin has a definite feel-good factor - guaranteed to lift you out of your depression, singing along to those infamous closing credits, with a massive smile on your face. Yes, it's predictable, slightly tacky and has a few, real-cringe-worthy moments - yet that just enhances the enjoyment of this typically 80s movie. It's not Oscar-winning, high-brow stuff yet with the magical combination mentioned above, loads of laugh out loud moments and a happy ending sure to get you sniffling - who cares?!?!?!

Adore this movie. Saw it once on telly, and fell in love with it.
Kim Catrall is fantastic in her role, as is Andrew McCarthy.
Many reviews already sell the plot, so won't mention here again.
Such a feel good 80's movie with funky music that'll have you singing for days. Recommend for all ages. Be silly not to buy at that price! Enjoy :)

This quirky film manages to take the Pygmalion idea and apply it to a big department store, where a window dresser meets a dummy brought to life as Emmy, a feisty Egyptian girl who did'nt like the life planned for her, and is skipping through time looking for her Mr. Right.

Mr. Right turns out to be an aspiring window dresser who could (with her help) produce the store windows that will turn around the fortunes of a struggling but loveable store.

For anyone who's ever wanted to run wild in a department store at night when no-one else is there, this is total wish fulfilment. The scenes where they play with the contents of the store each night, when Emmy comes to life, are wonderful fun. Hang gliding from the top of the store down to the bottom is a great idea.

Full of great characters, both heroes and villains, and some very funny scenes involving a neurotic bulldog, vengeful ex-girlfriend, and flamboyant window dresser, as well as a wicked rival store owner.

It's great, just watch it.
