Mannequin is your typical 1980s rom-com about a time traveling Egyptian princess turned into a living store display. You know, the usual. It boggles the mind that someone in a business suit okayed the plot, but I’m not complaining. A young mannequin played by Kim Catrall woos her creator by night, romping around in fancy dresses, smooching in the display tents and hang gliding over the mall’s multistory atrium. See, I told you it was good. — Amy Merrick

Set in a big, fancy department store, I’m fairly certain this is where I developed my first interest in shopping. The window dresser named Hollywood pretty much steals the show; his 1980s geometric goofiness is everything I hold dear about the decade. Pop yourself some nauseatingly buttery popcorn, put on some shoulder pads and enjoy.
