Cherry 2000 is a sci-fi adventure film that takes place in a dystopian future. The film's world is one where relationships between humans have become a rare and expensive commodity. In this world, people turn to technology to satisfy their desires for companionship and intimacy. It's against this backdrop that we meet our protagonist, Sam Treadwell, played by David Andrews.

Sam is a man who has lost his android lover, the titular 'Cherry 2000'. When she breaks down beyond repair, Sam embarks on a perilous journey to find a replacement.

Along the way, he meets E. Johnson, played by Melanie Griffith, a successful businesswoman who hires him for a job. She's a capable and determined woman who is unafraid to take risks, and as the two travel together, they develop a bond that challenges their understanding of love and what it means to be human.

The film's plot is a thrilling adventure full of action and suspense, but what sets it apart is its exploration of love, loss, and identity. Sam's quest to find a replacement for Cherry 2000 is a metaphor for his search for human connection in a world where technology has replaced it. The film asks important questions about the value of human relationships and how society might evolve in a future where technology has advanced to the point of replacing human intimacy.

One of the standout elements of the film is its cast. Melanie Griffith delivers a standout performance as E. Johnson, a character who defies gender stereotypes and challenges Sam's preconceptions about what a woman is capable of. David Andrews is also excellent as Sam, conveying the character's emotional journey with nuance and depth. The chemistry between the two leads is palpable, and their relationship is the emotional anchor of the film.

Cherry 2000 was directed by Steve De Jarnatt, known for his work on the critically acclaimed film Miracle Mile. De Jarnatt's visual style is immersive and engaging, drawing the viewer into the world of the film. The script was written by Michael Almereyda, who later went on to write and direct the modern adaptation of Hamlet starring Ethan Hawke (Gattaca). Almereyda's script is both thrilling and thought-provoking, exploring complex themes with nuance and depth.

While Cherry 2000 didn't receive much attention upon its release, it has since gained a cult following for its unique blend of sci-fi thrills and heartfelt storytelling. 

In conclusion, Cherry 2000 is a film that deserves to be seen by fans of sci-fi and fans of cinema in general. It's a thrilling adventure that explores important themes and features outstanding performances from its cast. While it may have its flaws, it's a film that has earned its place as a cult classic. So if you're looking for a journey to a dystopian future, look no further than Cherry 2000.
