A severely overrated Allen project. This campy string of unfunny gags does not hold up.

September 4, 2008
Bananas is chockfull of sight gags, one-liners and swiftly executed unnecessary excursions into vulgarity whose humor for the most part can't make up for content.
January 1, 2000
The format of interweaving what little storytelling there is along with stand-up routines is an unfulfilling one.

Yes, Allen has made better movies -- lots of them -- but I'm not sure he ever made anything funnier.

Bananas is a contender for Woody's funniest film and it is definitely one that gets laughs the whole way through.

Allen's view of the world is fraught with everything except pathos, and it's a view I happen to find very funny.

March 30, 2007
Inspired by the Marx Brothers comedies (specifically Duck Soup), Woody Allen made a leap forward as filmmaker in his second feature, a zany satire composed of riotous sketches and incoherent but funny one-liners.
