An attempted mashup of "Gilmore Girls" and "The Graduate," "Cherry" fails to be either raunchy or sweet.
Cherry cribs from The Graduate, Educating Rita, Good Will Hunting and Legally Blonde, but never comes close to being as funny or as touching as those movies at their best.
A sparkling coming-of-ager about a 17-year-old virgin who imperfectly juggles academic challenges and off-campus liaisons, somehow emerging able to walk on water.
Despite some tonal inconsistencies and ill-fitting stabs at whimsy, all-around good performances, Fine's snappy script, and Michael Hoskins' original illustrations elevate Cherry into a sensitively felt and fundamentally sweet coming-of-age pic.
Why's it special? Partly because of the performances. Partly because of the depth of characterization. Partly because of assured direction.
The film heaps on events and obstacles far too liberally for its skimpy frame.
