Although it doesn't always hang together -- violence and whimsy don't combine easily -- "Cherish" certainly isn't dull.

An uneven mix of genres that, even when it misses the mark, gets points for originality and a good beat.

Turns into the most routine of stories, its originality discarded in favor of a template for a story we've seen dozens of times before.

Becomes increasingly ludicrous and the risible climax confirms what scientists have long suspected: that prolonged exposure to the music of Hall and Oates will drive anyone mental.

You'll be entertained and utterly engrossed in this deceptively challenging little thriller.

While Cherish doesn't completely survive its tonal transformation from dark comedy to suspense thriller, it's got just enough charm and appealing character quirks to forgive that still serious problem.

Suffers from unlikable characters and a self-conscious sense of its own quirky hipness.

Both the crime story and the love story are unusual. But they don't fit well together and neither is well told.

The look and sound of something a little different.

A quirky stalker film that starts out with a few surprising turns and then keeps on giving them.

Feels aimless for much of its running time, until late in the film when a tidal wave of plot arrives, leaving questions in its wake.

Driven by Tunney's endearingly offbeat, oddball performance.

A film that presents an interesting, even sexy premise then ruins itself with too many contrivances and goofy situations.

A peculiar misfire that even Tunney can't save.

One of those American independent comedies that suffers from a serious case of the lonely-girl cutes.
| Original Score: 2/4

The directing and story are disjointed, flaws that have to be laid squarely on Taylor's doorstep. But the actors make this worth a peek.
| Original Score: 2/4

Finn Taylor's lark of a movie feels like two unfinished films awkwardly fused together and ever threatening to snap apart.

It's best to avoid imprisonment with the dull, nerdy folks that inhabit Cherish.
