  1. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Bananas

    I imagine that 1971 audiences were laughing aloud at all the jokes here. Unfortunately, I'm sure that we miss nowadays a good part of them because of our ignorance of the global situation of that period. On the contrary, some TV scenes that certainly were over the top in 1971 are in fact not so far away from some of the reality shows of today. Recommended.

  3. P D Dawson's rating of the film Bananas

    An early comedy from the master of wit. Here there is more slapstick comedy than subtle humour, but its political commentary more than make up for this. At times one feels uneasy at the level of satire, but Allen proves that comedy is a great leveller when handling political issues and as long as something is done in good humour, it seems there are no boundaries, something he explores to the full in subsequent films.

  4. Mario Lipuma's rating of the film Bananas

  5. ninchok's rating of the film Bananas

    Every scene from this movie is a masterpiece, even the tiny little one with the stroller strolling down the stairs as a reference to Eisenstein's Battleship Potemkin. I love Woody so much, I could watch his films 24/7.

  6. FISCHER's rating of the film Bananas

    Humour et références cinématographiques abondent et font sourire...

  7. Dalibor's rating of the film Bananas

    Eventually cracking under its own weight, and unable to fully pull a Monty Python's poke-at-it-until-it's-not-funny-anymore trick. But "Bananas" are nevertheless an intelligent stab at political hysteria and media sensationalism, explored from a view of sex-crazed society and pop-religion, with a cute homage to Chaplin at the beginning.

  8. El Biffo's rating of the film Bananas

    This is pretty dumb but a few of the jokes really crack me up. The dumbest ones especially, it's stoopid-funny.

  9. Duncan Gray's rating of the film Bananas

    One of "the early, funny ones", as he'd later joke, though I say Allen got wittier as he got more ambitious. This is Duck Soup for Kissinger, and a string of gags that prove Allen can't do slapstick. But putting National Review in a stack of porn mags is one of his best sight gags, and Bananas reminds us that, before he creeped audiences out as a dirty old man, he had surprising box office hits as a dirty young man.

  10. ant's rating of the film Bananas

    Best break-up scene ever

  11. anacecil's rating of the film Bananas

    Una caricatura de los paises Latinoamericanos, con el picante de Woody Allen

  12. Beatriz Isidro's rating of the film Bananas

  13. Howard Fritzson's rating of the film Bananas

    3.5 stars. I suppose it is nuts of me to say that this is my favorite Woody Allen film. I admire "Annie Hall" and "Manhattan" and "Purple Rose, "Sleeper," etc. but I don't love them. I love this film........"SNAKEBITE!!!!!!!"

  17. galuh indri's rating of the film Bananas

    "From this day on, the official language of San Marcos will be Swedish. In addition to that, all citizens will be required to change their underwear every half-hour. Underwear will be worn on the outside so we can check. Furthermore, all children under 16 years old are now... 16 years old!" -Esposito

  18. Johnny Fairfax-Lucy's rating of the film Bananas

  19. Ghostman's rating of the film Bananas

    classic woody allen, he should have made more political comedies

  20. Joe Hackman's rating of the film Bananas

    Slapstick comedy mixed with some hilarious political satire that is sadly still pertinent. "The CIA's not taking any chances; some are for and some are against."

  21. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Bananas

    Lo mejor de la película, su introducción hilarante. Algo que se repite al final y entonces se mastica como repetido. Allen tiene el ingenio del vodevil, de una comedia satírica y excéntrica. Varias de sus escenas parecen inclinarse a un humor secuencial. "Bananas" puede disfrutarse sin necesidad de seguir el hilo de la historia. Es como una cadena de rutinas cómicas.

  22. Dogukan4Ever's rating of the film Bananas

    1971, dir. WOODY ALLEN - 6.5/10 (USA)

  23. CutTheBlueWire's rating of the film Bananas

    A witty and charming slapstick that plays in some parts like a silent movie.

  24. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film Bananas

    Really funny political commentary from Woody that is as relevant and funny as when it first came out!
