‘Mannequin’ Was One Of The Weirdest Movies Of The 80s, And We’ve Still Got Some Questions

I know that 80s movies are a category of their own. Sure, there are rom-coms and action movies, but then there are also 80s rom-coms and 80s action movies.

They are different, they are unparalleled, and they are just better than other movies. Case in point: Mannequin.

The outrageously bizarre 80s rom-com brings joy to all of our hearts (or at least those lucky enough to remember it) even though the premise is absolute bonkers.

Here’s the thing, I love this movie with my whole heart. I can probably quote the entire thing to you right now (I won’t) but that doesn’t mean that I don’t have some questions about this wild ride of a film.

First of all, was she a mannequin or statue of some sort in every time period she visited?

So Emmy starts off in ancient Egypt, and prays to the gods to get away from her arranged marriage. Sure, I’m following so far (as much as anyone can). But then, they actually get her out of here, leaving her mom staring into the emptiness, and Emmy goes off on an adventure.
