Mannequin Two: On the Move is a 1991 romantic comedy film and a sequel to the 1987 film Mannequin. The film stars Kristy Swanson as a mannequin who was frozen one thousand years ago by an evil sorcerer using a magic necklace. She remains frozen until the necklace is removed and can stay permanently unfrozen if she receives a kiss from her true love.

The original film's theme song "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now" by Starship, written by Diane Warren and Albert Hammond, was featured in this film. The original music score was composed by David McHugh.

Plot[edit]

A thousand years ago in the kingdom of Hauptmann-Koenig, Prince William wants to marry his beloved Jessie, a peasant girl. But his mother does not approve and has an evil sorcerer trick the Prince into putting a necklace on Jessie, which turns her into a wooden icon for 1000 years (or until she finds true love in a foreign land).

A thousand years later, Jason Williamson is hired to work in Prince & Company's visual display department, which is headed by flamboyant window dresser Hollywood Montrose. As a tribute to Hauptmann-Koenig, the Enchanted Peasant Girl is being sent to Prince & Company for a window display. Jason removes the necklace, which awakens Jessie. She believes he is Prince William until he convinces her a thousand years have passed and he is not the Prince (although Jason and his mother mention his family history, leading the audience to believe that Jason is the descendant of the Prince).

The sorcerer's descendant, Count Gunther Spretzle, arrived with the Enchanted Peasant Girl. He plans to take Jessie when she awakens (along with her necklace) and hop a flight for Bermuda. Jason (with help from Hollywood) is the only one who can stop him.
