The mix of tones can be jarring, but it all has an odd charm.

Good performances and quirky humor make this slick if less than fully satisfying mix of romantic comedy and mystery an easy sit.

A witty little thriller emerges as Zoe, under house arrest, resourcefully stretches her electronic anklet's restrictions.

The best way to enjoy Finn Taylor's Cherish -- often the only way -- is to accept this odd little comic drama for what it is, a shamelessly contrived showcase for Robin Tunney.

Robin Tunney turns Zoe's socialization and investigation into little revelations - sculpting her magnetic, melancholy presence as perfectly as her buff body in third-act action where she sheds, and draws, blood for a climax driven by robust reclamations.

A funny and tense thriller with an excellent performance by Robin Tunney...

...deserves better than its early exit from theaters. How can you possibly dismiss the irrepressible Robin Tunney?

A movie about mistrust of the system, personal inertia, and the melancholy stasis of everyday life.

Drama-thriller-romance with lite music and heavy subtext is a slight near miss, but still fascinating.

...Tunney is allowed to build an uncommonly human character, an almost real-live girl complete with trouble and hope.

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.

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.

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

Driven by Tunney's endearingly offbeat, oddball performance.

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.

For the most part, Tunney carries the film on her sparkle, but Finn keeps jerking her from one vignette to the next and precluding any emotional development.
