Mannequin

Mannequin, 1987 film starring Andrew McCarthy, Kim Cattrall, Estelle Getty and more.  Easily one of my favorite comedies from the eighties’ not to mention the ending song was my wedding song! It’s the story of a young man who can not find a job that fits him, makes a mannequin so realistic he is amazed.  Turns out this mannequin is inhabited by the sole of an ancient Egyptian women who herself is looking for a time period that she fits in with.

After finding his mannequin at a store he got hired into it comes to life (But can only be seen by him)  Soon he becomes so popular at that store that it’s rival store wants to intervene and the results are very funny. (I’m trying not to give it away).

The film is a great mixture between comedy and a love story and you can easily come back to it and watch it again and again.  The cast was great and the story great.  Visuals were fantastic, no cgi back then just good acting.  Way to go!
