      Critics Consensus

      The different genres in Cherish don't mesh well, and the quirkiness sometimes feels too forced.

      Frances H Robin Tunney and Tim Blake Nelson make a pretty good couple in this oddball psycho thriller that really isn't too dark with its stalker villain, but dry humorous with a quirky heroine under house arrest and her ankle brace mechanic who is drier than dust. Their two characters and the wheelchair bound dwarf make this movie worth a watch. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/21/18 Full Review Audience Member Robin Tunney is so impossibly freakin adorable. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member This film is bad. I mean, make you angry bad. The plot is obsurd, and the only thing more disconnected from the plot are the characters. The protagonist doesn't seem to understand the gravity of her situation and may be just as crazy as her stalker villain boyfriend. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member This is a simplistic and strange story. I definitely wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member odd and quirky movie that is actually pretty interesting. robin tunney gives a good performnace and so does tim blake nelson ( who to me is normally boring) . worth watching if you are looking for something different and outside the mainstream. this is a mash up of different genres but somehow it works Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Disgustingly dull. Preposterous. Oh indie films... you'll be the death of me. The film is about a girl attacked by a stalker and ends up manslaughtering a cop. She suffers the rest of the movie under house arrest. Underrated Tim Blake Nelson falls for her for some unknown reason. And then it ends like Home Alone meets Saw. Not very thrilling at all.

      Hank Sartin Chicago Reader The mix of tones can be jarring, but it all has an odd charm. Feb 13, 2014 Full Review Keith Phipps AV Club In the end, it becomes the cinematic equivalent of one of the songs Tunney adores: enjoyable enough while it lasts, but so thin that its ingratiating charms seem as much a source of frustration as pleasure. Feb 13, 2014 Full Review Christy Lemire Associated Press Cherish is one of those movies in which the soundtrack is better than the movie itself. Feb 13, 2014 Full Review M. K. Terrell Christian Science Monitor A witty little thriller emerges as Zoe, under house arrest, resourcefully stretches her electronic anklet's restrictions. Rated: 2.5/4 Feb 13, 2014 Full Review Anita Schmaltz Metro Times (Detroit, MI) With all the time spent watching stir-crazy manacled Zoe viewing too much TV and listening to too much Human League, you can't help but feel like you're under house arrest too. Rated: 2.5/5 Feb 13, 2014 Full Review Nick Rogers Midwest Film Journal Robin Tunney turns Zoe's socialization and investigation into little revelations - sculpting her magnetic, melancholy presence as perfectly as her buff body in third-act action where she sheds, and draws, blood for a climax driven by robust reclamations. Rated: 4/4 Sep 25, 2010 Full Review Read all reviews
