Not as sweet as its title suggests, this subversive contemporary coming-of-age comedy resonates with enough character-driven authenticity to overcome its far-fetched contrivances.

The problem with Banana Split isn't the surface phoniness or lazy comedy but the fact that the movie doesn't offer any insight into its ostensible subjects-among them break-ups, female friendship, and teenage jealousy.

There was just something so deliciously compelling about these teens and their self-contained drama.

Much like the dessert that inspired its name, Banana Split is a mixture of familiar tastes but combined in a way that sets it apart from your boring coming-of-age scoop of vanilla ice cream.

A smart and breezy coming-of-age comedy that pushes a lot of the buttons that Booksmart does.

Thanks to a genuine script and an honest mentality... its view on relationships in all their forms should resonate with audiences, especially young women.

In short, this is a smart and moving comedy that will make you howl with laughter and call your best gal pal. It's d*mn good stuff and shouldn't be missed.

...[an] unconventionally perceptive and engaging coming-of-age female friendship/romancer. Inherently touching and liberating, Banana Split is an endearing account of cemented youthful female relations

Sweet, funny, cringe-worthy, and a testament to the importance of high school friendships.

It is absolutely lovely. If I was going to watch a movie virtually this weekend, I would absolutely pick this one.

It's a very smart script and it really does get into some interesting emotional territory.

Raunchy comedy has strong messages about female friendship.

A plucky, funny coming-of-age story.

The problem with the film is that while their relationship is believable and there are a few funny moments here and there, it just never quite clicks in the way that you think that it should.
March 27, 2020
A reasonably tasty confection, but in the end its nutritional value is low.
March 27, 2020
An entertaining and often insightful look at female friendship during a particularly strange time.
March 27, 2020
Regardless of how far audience members are from their own post-high school, pre-college summer like these teens, there's still truth and plenty of laughter here that feels specific to their experience yet universal to anyone who's had a BFF.

When the movie is over, you've chuckled at it and been touched by it, and you're glad that you got to spend time with these actors, who are good enough that I could foresee any one of them blowing up big.
March 27, 2020
It's too caught up in the drama of its gimmicky premise...
March 27, 2020
A teen comedy that combines the emotional honesty of an '80s John Hughes flick with a very modern social media-influenced sensibility.
