Storyline

At age 19, a young woman is jilted at the altar. This leads to a declaration that she will swear off men forever. Now 10 years later, she suddenly decides she would like to have a child. She advertises in the newspaper for potential mates, whether by traditional methods or by sperm donors, but gets nothing but losers. However, two neighborhood men vie for her attention - her gynecologist and a professional clown. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Darcy: [narration] ... and not a bogus pearl, either... one with some value, one with some weight...
[amongst the post-it notes on the refrigerator, one reads: HAVE A CHILD]
Darcy: [narration] ...the kind you cast before swine.
Leila Sweet: Come on, Paxil.
Darcy: [narration] Of course, there is such a thing as a false pearl.

A fresh, fun, easy-going, creative little sleeper.
3 August 2001 | by (Orange County, CA USA) – See all my reviews

"Cherry" tells of a naive, unmarried virgin who decides to have a baby but isn't quite sure how to go about it. This easy going little sleeper is full of quirky characters and tongue-in-cheek situational humor. Fresh, fun, mold breaking stuff, I happened to really enjoy this flick...for whatever that's worth. Recommended for lovers of romantic comedy who want something different.
