Storyline

The flamboyant Hollywood Montrose is promoted to head window dresser at Prince and Company department store. Hollywood hires his new assistant Jason Williamson, who in a past life was the prince of the Hauptmann-Koenig kingdom. Prince and Company plans to display a mannequin known as the Enchanted Peasant Girl in celebration of the kingdom. And Jason has a nagging feeling he has seen this mannequin somewhere before. Removing a necklace from the mannequin reveals that the Enchanted Peasant Girl is really Jessie, the love of his past life who was placed under a thousand year spell by an evil sorcerer. Their rekindled romance is not without its challenges when the evil sorcerer reappears in his descendant Count Gunther Spretzle, who has plans of his own for Jessie. But Jessie must receive a kiss from her one true love to break free from the curse before Count Spretzle finds her. Written by MGM/UA Home Video

A GREAT ROMANTIC COMEDY
2 September 2002 | by devoted_englandfanSee all my reviews

I found this film a thrill to watch. I never intended to watch it but one day it was on and I decided to give it a go. I have not seen the original and I had not even heard of it. But when I got in to this story I found very entertaining. The characters are wonderful. Kristy Swanson is beautiful as the mannequin. Hollywood is hilarious. I also like the lead character as a lot of people, maybe myself can relate to him. After Watching it I rate it as my favourite Romantic Comedy. It is one that the whole family can enjoy. I would highly recommend it as a film worth watching.
