The scene where Sam drives his yellow Trihawk 304 three-wheeled car to the Glory Hole Hotel features a very inside joke. As he stops the car, he parks next to a broken-down yellow Renault Le-Car with a rocket launcher mounted on the roof. Hawk Vehicles, Inc. used the suspension from the Le-Car and steering from another Renault model in the production of the Trihawk 304. See more »
When E. Johnson's car is shot up in the barricade, its right front fender turns dark gray. Thirty seconds later, in a daylight driving establishing shot, the car's right front fender is shown with its original red color. See more »
Some dull parts, but still an effortlessly likable movie.
"Cherry 2000" was a huge commercial failure and it's hardly ever mentioned today, but I found it surprisingly entertaining. Sure, the script is unimaginative and the film has no real vision and the action scenes are strictly routine, but the two leads are enormously, effortlessly likable. They make a deeply sweet pair. Maybe the film should have concentrated more on their love story and less on the familiar action aspects of the story. And the violence of a couple of scenes seems rather out of place. But even with its weaknesses, this movie is, fitfully, absorbing and very entertaining.
