Cherish

Critics Consensus

The different genres in Cherish don't mesh well, and the quirkiness sometimes feels too forced.

Movie Info

A bizarre situation involving lots of drinks, a stalker, a car, and a policeman leads to the house arrest of normally mild-mannered San Francisco animator Zoe Adler (Robin Tunney). Though confined to her apartment by an electronic bracelet, Zoe is intent on clearing her name, so she enlists the aid of her kindhearted parole officer, Daly (Tim Blake Nelson), who stops by regularly. As Daly assists Zoe in her investigation, the two begin to fall for each other, resulting in an unlikely romance.

Audience Reviews for Cherish

  • Dec 19, 2009
    A fresh take on the thriller genre, which really isn't a thriller most of the time, in fact the thriller elements get in the way! Robin Tunney is an (overly) talkative, socially awkward, music loving computer animator who during a sodden night out crashes and kills a cop after a mysterious stranger carjacks her and then flees the scene. Whew! Nobody believes her story, so while awaiting trial she is placed under house arrest in a new, downtrodden neighborhood (she had to sell her condo to pay her lawyer) and fitted with an ankle transmitter that only allows her 57 feet distance from an alarm beacon. This is where the bulk of the film - and entertainment - lies, in her apartment awaiting trial. Her only acquaintances are her invalid downstairs neighbor and the ankle bracelet security officer who makes routine visits. The relationships and twists that develop are surprising yet believable. Tunney alone bears the weight of the movie as she features in nearly every scene, and her quirkily appealing performance won my affection. Tim Blake Nelson also hits the bulls-eye, but Liz Phair....well, it's fun to see her appear in a movie once. Nice in-joke of her whitechocolatespaceegg album displayed at the checkout counter of a record store. The thriller elements are competent but fairly routine, and with a resolution that doesn't make a whole lot of sense. Normally these deficiencies would kill a movie, but the characters and occurrences are so fun to watch that the thriller aspect became secondary. Filled with '80s songs that fit perfectly with the mood of each scene. A modest, enjoyably offbeat sleeper.
