Editorial Reviews

At long last, one of the seminal films of the Melanie Griffith oeuvre is now available. Cherry 2000 is the heartwarming tale of Sam Treadwell (David Andrews), who will stop at nothing to find another model of his broken sex android. Griffith plays E. Johnson, the tough-as-nails tracker who helps him track her down. As deliriously chowderheaded as the premise of the movie sounds, it's actually not half bad and immensely fun to watch. The surprisingly mature plot (nobody gets naked!) involves Treadwell's gradual discovery that there's more to a good woman than a beautiful body and perfect subservience. Don't worry, there are plenty of explosions to keep you from getting bored. Griffith absolutely owns the movie--she looks like a complete badass handling surface-to-air missiles, though of course she still sounds like she picked up diction tips from early Shirley Temple movies. The DVD version includes the invaluable documentary "The Making of Cherry 2000" and the option of watching the entire film dubbed into French. Do not pass up the French version: it really brings out the art. --Ali Davis

4.0 out of 5 stars Cherry Comes Home To DVD! June 5, 2001
Movie Summary: Sam Treadwell's perfect robot wife, model Cherry 2000, breaks down. He wants to get her fixed because he thinks he loves her. But in post apocalyptic LA, there aren't any parts. He hears a rumor of a giant warehouse of Cherrys out in the wasteland. The problem is getting there, and getting back alive. To improve his odds he hires a tracker named E. Johnson (played by Griffith) who turns out to be a very unique and real woman, something that Sam has never encountered before. As E and Sam fight their way across the wasteland and into the warehouse, Sam learns a little something about real women and real love.
My Opinion: This movie is a ton of fun. At first glance it may not seem like much, but when you watch it, it pulls you in and takes over. Sure it's a bit silly at times, but it has more depth than other movies of this type. There is a full blown plot and a moral to the story. The action is good, and Griffith is great. It's one of those guilty pleasures movies that you are embarrassed to admit that you like. It's very easy and fun to watch making it one that you will watch more than once.
DVD Quality: Widescreen anamorphic, trailer, and making of documentary make this a nice little DVD
What You Should Do: Buy it. If you are a SciFi fan you need this one. The price couldn't be better!

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't Forget Tim! June 9, 2002
By Doug G.
Nobody's yet mentioned another stand-out member of the cast of this film: Tim Thomerson as "Lester," the villain of the piece. His quirky and over-the-top portrayal makes Lester one of the most hilarious and memorable comic movie villains of all time.
The film is rife with running gags, visual humor and clever bits of dialogue (as when one character describes life in the post-apocalyptic big city as being "kinda paranoid and audio-visual;" while another summarizes life in the lawless desolation of Zone 7 this way: "You should see 'em out there, playin' Twister and revertin' to their animal natures!")
You'll need to watch it more than once to catch all the visual gags; my favorite being when Melanie Griffith consults her Thomas Bros. Guide to the Forbidden Zone.
This film is plain good fun, and not remotely as insulting to one's intelligence as half the big-budget, "blockbusters" out there. For a fun David Andrews double-feature, try this one with Stephen King's "Graveyard Shift."

3.0 out of 5 stars There's a lot more to love than hot wiring. July 18, 2003
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
In terms of post apocalyptic sci-fi action type movies, this one isn't too bad. A little goofy for my tastes, but the humor was subtle and the action okay. David Andrews (Graveyard Shift, Hannibal, Apollo 13) stars as Sam Treadwell, as somewhat well to do individual in the post apocalyptic near future. He prefers the company of a highly sophisticated pleasure bot, a model called Cherry 2000, to that of the messy entanglements of a relationship with a woman. Only problem is, during a romantic interlude, his Cherry 2000 get water in her system and suffers a complete internal meltdown. Removing the personality chip which contains voice patterns, mannerisms, etc., he sets out to find a replacement, which is easier said than done, as that model is nearly impossible to come by, and highly coveted. He gets a tip that there is a whole warehouse of the Cherry 2000 model in a warehouse, problem is the warehouse is located in wastelands, a highly restrictive and dangerous area.

Sam decides to hire a tracker to go and retrieve him a new unit, and meets with Edith E. Johnson, played by Melanie Griffith. So Sam and Edith set off in her souped up Ford Mustang, into the wastelands. After a skirmish or two, they encounter one of the more feared groups of the wastelands, led by Lester, played by Tim Thomerson (Trancers, Who's Harry Crumb, Air America). Lester and his gang live what I would call a little suburb of the desert called Sky Ranch, and detest trackers. Why they hate trackers, I don't know, as it's never explained, but they do, so I went with it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great post-apacalyptic sci-fi thriller March 31, 2002
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
One of many post-apocapyptic thrillers following the success of Mad Max and The Road Warrior -- and a good one.
Griffith is a tough femme mercenary hired by a yuppie to retrieve his stolen "Cherry 2000" sex android. It sounds silly, but the film has exciting fight scenes, and also moments of warmth and poignancy. Griffith is too proud to admit that she's grown in love with the yuppie.
Of course, the yuppie eventually realizes that the love a real woman (Griffith) beats the "perfect" love of a vapid android.
Film resembles Circuitry Man, another great post-apocalyptic thriller. In that one, Dana Wheeler-Nicholson is a tough femme mercenary who falls in love with a not-so-vapir male sex adroid.
Yeah, they both sound stupid, but they're fine films if you like the genre.
Cherry 2000 wasn't distributed until several years after its completion. For several years in the 1980s, I kept reading reports of "the soon to be released Cherry 2000." I suppose the Mad Max cycle had ended by the time Cherry 2000 was finished, and distributors got cold feet. The film still seems to suffer some residual (and unjustified) bad reputation.
I found it highly entertaining, with moments of philosophical depth.
