About Cherry only manages to seem inconsequential.
When a guilty perv is all a film has to offer by way of a protagonist then it's probably in the best interests of us all if it doesn't exist.
| Original Score: 1/5
Here is a movie that suggests prostitution is something that just sort of happens to you, like Lyme disease.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
Never boring but never as engaging as it could or should be.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
It has a didactic undercurrent, making its main character into a beautiful blank, ready to blossom under the bright camera lights and to be unabashed in the face of the unenlightened.
| Original Score: C+
The lack of plausible conflict mars the movie's highly commendable depiction of San Francisco as a the new porn capital.
| Original Score: 2/4
almost laughably unsexy
Everything here is done badly.
| Original Score: 0/5
A muddled, inconsequential journey of a surprisingly unsympathetic character and her hazy ride to the top of the porno food chain.
| Original Score: D
This is just a slow-moving skin flick broken up by lots of boring discussions about Cherry's future.
| Original Score: 1/4
So much of About Cherry is meant to titillate and dramatize but never humanize.
| Original Score: 2.0/5.0
Rather shockingly lacking in dynamic plotting, the film descends into mystifying incomprehensibility in its final reels, showing a lack of understanding of basic human motivations.
| Original Score: C-
Flimsy and fetishized, it delivers little more than a hackneyed skin flick.
| Original Score: 3/10
The fatal flaw ... is its refusal to examine Angelina's occupation from outside the bubble. You might even call it a recruitment film.
| Original Score: 2/5
Dramas about the porn industry range from expressions of puritanical rage to celebrations of open sexuality; this one manages to avoid both extremes, as well as anything else that might make it worth watching.
Despite Hinshaw's audacious performance, the characters remain at an emotional distance.
It's pornography bathed in the tangerine glow of fruit-scented candlelight.
Mediocre drama centered a young woman's introduction to the porn industry.
Pollyanna does 'Frisco!
| Original Score: 3/4
Generates a sensual world existing on top of the real one, where many people work non-ideal jobs simply to pay the bills.
