Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Brian J. Dillard
Low production values can't dampen the quirky humor and interesting premise of this enjoyable B movie, which reimagines Blade Runner as a Roger Corman Western and casts Melanie Griffith in a kick-ass action role. Screenwriter Michael Almereyda, who would go on to pen Total Recall and both write and direct the quirky vampire flick Nadja, invests his near-future world with lots of well-imagined details that survive their translation into low-budget visuals. The film's two central premises -- that sex and the law will become ever more intertwined, and that technology will provide solace to those who can't get laid in the traditional sense -- might have seemed futuristic in the mid-'80s, but they just seem like common sense in the cold light of the 21st century. Cherry 2000's flip, cheeky approach to such ideas may lack the poetic melancholy of the best science fiction films, but that doesn't mean it isn't thoughtful in its own way. Of course, this is primarily a popcorn flick, and director Steven de Jarnatt stretches his budget admirably well; the action sequences are workaday but well-realized, while production designer John J. Moore gets a lot of mileage out of Mad Max-style grit and post-New Wave fashions. The whole thing would fall apart, though, if Griffith didn't make such an appealing heroine. With her Raggedy Ann 'do and fuss-free self-assurance, she updates her Body Double character with body armor and proto-Tank Girl sass. Co-star David Andrews, meanwhile, plays things convincingly straight, while old cowboy Ben Johnson has fun in an aw-shucks supporting role and Tim Thomerson hams it up as hapless maniac Lester. Despite the presence of pert Pamela Gidley in the title role, Cherry 2000 is remarkably lacking in T&A, strange for a movie about a sex robot, but further evidence for those who want to reclaim this as a quietly feminist fable.

    Brilliant Feminist Film

    Not only does this movie contain the BEST kiss on the hood of car in film history, it is also a brilliant feminist film disguised as a comedy. Even better, it presents itself as if its target audience is men, all the while playing with and exploding female archetypes. This is an action film in which, if somebody breaks a heel and screams for help, it's the guy, not the gal. Fun for everybody and secretly subversive. Enjoy.

    Looking for love in all the wrong places

    I am pleased that they have finally decided to release Cherry 2000. I watched this movie in the '80s and have was never able to find it on tape, the DVD. This movie is a love story set in the future. Where even holding hands takes a contract, so imagine a relationship. Our leading man has it all, the perfect job, homelife and wife...But one day she short circuits and current technology has fallen on hard times, and no one can fix her. But he saves her memory. So the search begins in the wastelands of what was once the western USA, with a female tracker he hires. They find the precise robotic girlfriend... the love interest are their, but this is not just a chic flick. It is a chic flick for guys as well. The action scenes and futuristic backgrounds, along with the relationship between the two main characters make this an excellent movie. I highly recommend it. You wil lalways remember Cherry 2000
