Flamboyant window dresser Hollywood Montrose (Meshach Taylor) provides the link between this film and the original Mannequin after the departure of Kim Cattrall and Andrew McCarthy from the cast. Hollywood has now been promoted to the head of Prince & Company's Visual Display Department.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Unfortunately, the recycled plot is still the driving force here, and the movie becomes increasingly frantic trying to accommodate it. In the end, Raffill can't bring this dummy to life, but he does try."
‑ John Hartl, Seattle Times
"It took four writers to struggle with another idea of why a mannequin would come to life in a department store and what would happen if she did."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"Sometimes talented filmmakers can pep up even the most hackneyed material with an infusion of energy and talent."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Could somebody please tell me why four scriptwriters were needed for Mannequin Two: On the Move?"
‑ Roger Hurlburt, South Florida Sun-Sentinel
"The first one was so-so. This one is less so."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Beneath this slick variation on the Sleeping Beauty theme lies a male fantasy that would not withstand much hard psychological scrutiny."
‑ Desmond Ryan, Philadelphia Inquirer
"Raffill's heavy-handed direction is jam-packed with product placement, and interrupted every ten seconds with yet another plug for a boring MOR rock song."
‑ Mark Kermode, Time Out
"The script is so full of old gags it must have been chiselled on stone tablets, while Stewart Raffill's direction is a model example of how not to let the action get in the way of product placements."
‑ David Parkinson, Radio Times
"The plot is the same, only dumber."
‑ Stephen Hunter, Baltimore Sun
"Plenty of eye candy, A healthy dose of laughs."
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"From start to finish Mannequin Two: On the Move is insipid in the extreme."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"This film has enough new characters and independent spirit to have a light, cheery style of its own."
‑ Janet Maslin, New York Times
"Despite the presence of four credited screenwriters, the plot is a rehash of cliches and tired jokes."
‑ Torene Svitil, Empire Magazine
"It's as woefully incompetent as its predecessor, except it's dealing with a smaller budget, you know, for added dreadfulness."
‑ David Cornelius, DVDTalk.com
"Mannequin 2 is so bad that you'd easily accept my supposition that the film was in fact directed by three spiders, a goat, and a dedicated gust of wind."
‑ Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com
