Movie Info

In this sci-fi actioner, yuppie Sam Treadwell (David Andrews) tries to make love to his sex-toy robot Cherry (Pamela Gidley) in the bathtub, and the machine short circuits and malfunctions. Sam seeks a replacement, but to do so he must go through a dangerous desert region known as the Zone. He enlists the help of tracker E. Johnson (Melanie Griffith) to get him to the robot warehouse, but the area is patrolled by forces loyal to the psycho gangleader Lester (Tim Thomerson). Along the way they meet Six Finger Jake (Ben Johnson), the grizzled and philosophical tracker. Watch for Laurence Fishburn in the role of the Glu Glu Club lawyer.more

Director Steve de Jarnatt does an incredible job building a weird, futuristic world ... from the sets to the bizarre costume designs.

Under the Radar

Crazy kind of futuristic thriller with Griffith's as a femme-fatale robotic killer on the loose.

Sunday Times (Australia)

Aimless futuristic action-babble.

Audience Reviews for Cherry 2000

What's an urban pretty boy to do in the post-apocalypse once he's broken his favorite bit of indispensable technology and nobody makes replacement parts anymore? That's the opening gambit in this sci-fi romp that's more comedy/romance than sci-fi, a tip of the hat to the old pulp days of the genre. Melanie Griffiths is the star and she's actually good in this = surprise.

This is a strange sci-fi movie with a stupid story and so-so actors. I didn't care for it at all.

If you ever meet someone who thinks that it is impossible to suck and blow at the same time, just tell them to watch this movie.
