Banannas!
11 September 2006 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Ridiculous and cheesy, sure. And yes, Pinky Lee is really not very funny.

However, Pinky does pull off one of the best "bananna in my pocket" gags I'd ever seen, which truly made me laugh. How the heck did the censors *not* get that one?

Also, Mamie Van Doren looks incredible, as do the rest of the Miss Universe gals. But what about those hula performers? Not an authentic islander in the bunch -- they all looked like pasty chorus boys to me.

Oh, and the hula-hands in 3D was a very clever and subtle gag. Worth seeing in 3D for that alone.
