Michael Gottlieb United States, 1987

HKFanatic's rating of the film Mannequin

Andrew McCarthy goes to great lengths to make his character - a lonely misfit from Ohio who falls in love with his own sculpted mannequin - about as non-pervy and sweet as one possibly could, and Kim Cattral is of course perfectly cast. But I'm in the minority of viewers who prefer the lighter and more frothy sequel to the original - even if it does have a vintage synth soundtrack and an English bulldog named Rambo.
