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!

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."

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.

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.
