A good romance movie

I don't quite understand its relatively low ratings and reviews, as I found it to be a fairly good movie for its genre, while at the same time being unique/bringing something new to the table other than the typical clique romance you'd expect. Was also surprisingly ahead of its time, having an openly gay character as a friend to the protagonist (although he was highly based upon stereotypes). However, left some pretty important questions unanswered, to the point parts of the movie didn't totally make sense.

Ultimately, worth a watch

Felix...Rambo....Switcher and the Mannequin!!

A classic 80' comedy,the original idea is pretty good,McCarthy made a good job,Cattrall was in great shape and sexy than ever...and the most interesting couple in the movie Felix and Rambo simply stolen the show playing the same crook character style as Police Academy,priceless as never...and made a duo dumb together Rambo what a Dog!!!James Spader is also a high point in the movie...the stylist Hollywood in the funny role as gay guy is totally crazy given a colorful to the movie,amazing escaping comedy!!

Resume:

First watch: 1990 / How many: 4 / Source: TV-DVD / Rating: 7

I've never been kissed by a real live boy

Andrew McCarthy in this film got an opportunity to create and bring to life the girl of his dream. He's got an artist's temperament and has to express himself wherever he works. But sadly he works for employers who value speed and quantity so he can't hold a job. Working in a department store he fashions a Mannequin that is the girl of his dreams. And when he gives her a kiss, Kim Cattrall springs to life, but only for him.

Saving the life of department store magnate Estelle Getty gets him a job at her store and he shows genius in creating truly great display windows. But he works at night and it's Cattrall who keeps inspiring McCarthy.

Sad to say that there are any number of people who have differing agendas who are looking to put Getty's department store out of business, some of them working for her like James Spader, Carole Davis, Steve Vinovich and Christopher Maher.

Part of Mannequin's appeal for me is this incredible cast of supporting players all of whom seem to be trying to top themselves with overacting. The best two are Meshach Taylor as the very flamboyant designer Hollywood who becomes McCarthy's best friend and G.W. Bailey the store security guard who if he wasn't ready for the rubber room trying to catch McCarthy doing something wrong will put him there. Seeing McCarthy in a compromising position with a store Mannequin makes him sure we can get him on a moral's clause.

McCarthy and Cattrall through all this scenery chewing are a pair of appealing leads. Mannequin got one Oscar nomination for Best Song for the hit Nothing's Going To Stop Us Now.

The film is 30 years old and it is still fresh and appealing as its leads. And very funny indeed.
