Storyline

In the year 2017, a rich man travels to the ends of the earth to find that the perfect woman is always under his nose. When successful businessman Sam Treadwell finds that his animatronic wife, Cherry model 2000 has shorted out, he hires sexy renegade tracker E. Johnson (Melanie Griffith) to find her exact duplicate. But as their journey to replace his perfect mate leads them into the treacherous and lawless region of The Zone, Treadwell learns the hard way that the perfect woman is made not of computer chips and diodes, but of real flesh and blood. Written by Ron Borgstedt <ronborgstedt@sbcglobal.net>

Trivia

In an interview done on set and published in Starlog 109 (cover date August 1986), Melanie Griffith reveals that she was pregnant with her first child when she tested for this movie. She was hired with a clause in her contract that if she did not have the baby by September 9, her role would be recast. Her son Alexander (with her then husband Steven Bauer) was born August 22, 1985, and Griffith started the film three weeks later, taking the boy along to the set each day to breastfeed him.

Goofs

The Aeronca Champ, with its 65hp Continental engine, won't fit the spark plugs from the Mustang. Even adapting them would be an enormous stretch. See more »

Man Meets Robot, Ditches Robot for Hot Babe with Gun
19 August 2000 | by (Wrightsville, North Carolina) – See all my reviews

Cherry 2k is a low budget one-off adaptation of the Mad Max concept mixed in with futurist technology ideas and a very cool love story. The male star goes on a quest to replace his lost robot sex android. That's the basic plot.

What's unusual is that this movie succeeds in mixing these elements without screwing up. The Sci-fi perspective doesn't overwhelm the overall plot, and vice versa.

Very few B grade movies from this time period were watchable, much less worth keeping in one's collection. Fortunately, Cherry 2000 bucked this trend and deserves a spot on the shelf of any cult classic and/or Sci-fi movie collector.
