a pilot wants to have sex, but always loses his erection
23 September 2002 | by (Atlanta) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie when I was about 10 or 11, late night, all cranked up on caffeine...but if my memory serves me right- the basic plot is about a guy trying to get laid, but every time he's about to get some he loses his erection...thats it...pretty hilarious...pretty bad... but lots of boobs. the most memorable part is the title song of the movie... "it wants to go up,up,up, but it always goes down,down,down...PACIFIC BANANA!" or something like that...I gotta find this movie.
