Nothing can come between the love of a man and his Mannequin
This is a fun loving romantic comedy that hits the spot every time I watch it.
I love this film. It may not be Oscar winning material but it is high entertainment full of jokes, unusual situations and one of the best "high speed chases" I have seen.
Andrew McCarthy is so adorable as the out of work artist who finds his inspiration from the mannequin he designs and makes.
Kim Catrall puts in a good performance of the time travelling Egyptian princess who is never quite content with her situation until she reaches "present day America" in the form of a department store mannequin.
I definitely recommend this movie. It will cheer you up or just fill in an evening's movie entertainment. Whatever you do with it enjoy it cause deep down it's a love story that everyone will be really satisfied with.
