They've got a harbor full of nuclear subs and a mannequin freaks them out.

They really need to get out more.

I wish I knew something about this movie other than that there's a dude named Hollywood in it. No. As a matter of fact, I'm ashamed that I even know that much.

It probably freaks them out because they want to have sex with it.

it's a great movie.

Personally, I'm more freaked out about the guy inside the store. He has an Innsmouth look to him.

It's set in Philadelphia and was filmed at the old John Wanamaker department store.

The pedestrian bridge that figures in the finale got taken out by an over-tall truck about 15 years ago and it's never been replaced.

At least it's not on a remote control to move when people get near.

Well, look, The Portsmouth City Council had only smoked one time before and they didn't even get high. So, of course this time they went in to it all cocky, got a little too farked up, and just FREAKED OUT, man.

Store mannequins hit some people's uncanny valleys, especially when they're not in their usual spot behind a store window.

Assistant Mayor Jack Blalock, a fellow downtown business owner, came to Echt's defense. "It's a matter of what you like or don't like," he said. "I see this like outside art and a clever way to advertise a business." He kicked everybody on the city council in the face, then made sweet love to the mannequin.

/I'm pretty sure this is what it was supposed to say.

Told me I'd inherited the Innsmouth Look.
I'd Gill's and wide spaced Eyes you see
And I frolicked at the bottom of the deep blue sea.

What? That? It's not a mannequin, that's just the money you could be saving with Geico.

Fearing it may "freak out" pedestrians at Vaughan Mall, the City Council limited its approval of a local boutique shop owner's request to place a seated mannequin outside her store to three months, rather than one year.

Exactly what does the time limit accomplish? Wouldn't people be used to it after 3 months? I can't even imagine the discussion the City Council had to come to this decision.

Next thing you know the crusty jugglers will be taking over the whole damn town.

ToxicMunkee: It probably freaks them out because they want to have sex with it.

This.

I don't see what's so strange or creepy about it. There are seated statues in parks, and plenty of seated mannequins in store displays INSIDE the store, so why would a seated mannequin outside the store be so upsetting? Someone needs to buy a RealDoll and get over their fear of inanimate human-looking objects.

Not as creepy as the paperclip. Though it could be his cousin.
