Bananas (Woody Allen – 1971) B+

Jeez is this cheesy or is it very funny? A bit of both. The jokes are predictable but this meandering “political” satire is never boring and at times quiet brilliant. Allen seems to just throw jokes together wrapped in a political loose plot involving a South American country whose primary exports include bananas and dysentery. Somehow it works for me.
