Here's the plot: Boy meets girl mannequin, who comes to life at night. Boy loses mannequin. Boy gets mannequin. No kidding, that's all there is to it. Andrew (Pretty in Pink) McCarthy and Kim (Police Academy) Cattrall play these stick figures with none of the embarrassment that this amateur enterprise warrants. Newcomer Michael Gottlieb directs as if he's never even seen a sitcom. To label this movie "entertainment" is to perpetrate consumer fraud. (PG)
