CHERRY 2000

(1987) dir Steve De Jarnatt w/David Andrews, Melanie Griffith, Pamela Gidley, Brion James, Marshall Bell, Laurence Fishburn [99 mIn; 35mm]
Melanie Griffith plays a female spoof on Mad Max in this ‘80s oddity. In a post-apocalyptic future, a man (Andrews) short circuits his model Cherry 2000 girlfriend/robot (Gidley), so he hires a mercenary tracker (Griffith) to help him scrounge up a new one. Featuring a soundtrack by Basil Poledouris, composer on Conan the Barbarian, RoboCop, and Starship Troopers.
