Despite receiving less than stellar reviews from critics (the film currently has a 37% rating on Rotten Tomatoes), it appears that it is being generally enjoyed by audiences. The audience score on the platform currently rates it at 74%.

The film, which debuted on Apple's streaming service last week, stars Tom Holland and Ciara Bravo in a Forrest-Gump-like chronicle of Holland's life as a high-school student, soldier, drug addict, and eventual bank robber.

"Cherry" follows the wild journey of a disenfranchised young man from Ohio who meets the love of his life, only to risk losing her through a series of bad decisions and challenging life circumstances. Inspired by the best-selling novel of the same name, "Cherry" features Tom Holland in the title role as an unhinged character who drifts from dropping out of college to serving in Iraq as an Army medic and is only anchored by his one true love, Emily (Ciara Bravo). When Cherry returns home a war hero, he battles the demons of undiagnosed PTSD and spirals into drug addiction, surrounding himself with a menagerie of depraved misfits. Draining his finances, Cherry turns to bank robbing to fund his addiction, shattering his relationship with Emily along the way. Brought to the screen in bold, gritty fashion by visionary directors Anthony and Joe Russo, "Cherry" is a darkly humorous, unflinching coming-of-age story of a man on a universal quest for purpose and human connection.

You can watch Cherry on Apple TV+ now. Apple's streaming service is available on a number of devices, but the best experience you can get is still with the Apple TV 4K.
