Move These to the Top of Your Queue: "Bananas" and "Casino Royale"

| 1 comment

Not sure how we overlooked these earlier in the week, but there are two more comedy classics that will soon be expiring from Netflix Instant.

1. Title: Bananas (1971)

Where to find it: Netflix Instant through September 1st

If you've never seen Woody Allen's earliest (and silliest) films, you're truly missing out. In Bananas, Allen's character, Feilding Mellish, goes to a fictional Latin American country and joins its rebel movement - eventually rising to the office of President - all in order to impress his desired love object (Louise Lasser) with his "leadership qualities."



2. Title: Casino Royale (1967)

Where to find it: Netflix Instant through August 31st

A classic goofball farce, this star-studded spy spoof is the only movie that sports David Niven (and many others!) in the role of James Bond. It also features the talents of Peter Sellers, Orson Welles, Woody Allen, Deborah Kerr and William Holden. Kinda makes you look at "Austin Powers" in a whole new light, eh?

Re: "Bananas" and "Casino Royale"

Bananas is B-A-N-A-N-A-S, but you consider Casino Royale a classic, really?

The wife and I are big Bond/spy genre fans and we could only make it through about half of C.R. The plot is completely impossible to follow and the humor does not stand the test of time. One of the worst films I've seen in a while.

Give me Top Secret! or Spies Like Us any day.
