    Bananas

    ★★★★

    I just want to say that I was genuinely surprised by how much I enjoyed Bananas and how much I was laughing! Bananas is a comedy that really reminded me of the mile-a-minute parody comedy style of something like Airplane!, which incidentally is one of my favorite comedies.
