Some Guys Have All The Luck..

When I was a little girl, my favourite movie was Mannequin on the Move. Yes, the lame sequel to Mannequin starring 80's god Andrew McCarthy and Kim Catrall before she was an SATC whore. I was eight.

I think I loved this movie so much because it was so over-the-top. The storyline was beyond ridiculous (similar to many children's TV shows today) and really easy to understand - unlike Pretty Woman. I loved that movie too but I didn't know exactly what was going on. Don't judge my parents, I was being looked after by a family friend.


The fashion in this movie was early 90's at its best, still liking the bright colours of the 80's while moving towards the slouchier, grungier shapes of the 90's. Sadly, I could only find the movie poster, which doesn't really corroborate anything I just said.
It seems this film has almost completely disappeared. Whether that is a good thing or a bad thing I don't know.

Man, I remember watching the first 'Mannequin' repeatedly as a kid. I didn't even *know* there was a sequel.

I THINK MY FAVORITE WAS SHORT CIRCUIT. PART TWO KIND OF SUCKED, THOUGH.

You don't know me but as I was looking for amazing images to post on my blog about this lovely movie, I came across yours. I love #2 even more than the first one and just bought this obscure hit off eBay. Quite possibly the most stupid, most brilliant movie ever made. :)
