Pacific Banana
This is a smarmy, leering sex-comedy from director John D. Lamond, who had done much better with 1978's erotic Felicity. Graeme Blundell, star of the similarly raunchy Alvin Purple, plays a nerd named Martin who sneezes whenever a woman turns him on, causing impotence. After an unsuccessful tryst with the boss's wife, Martin is sent to Tahiti on Banana Airlines. At this point, hilarity is supposed to ensue. It doesn't. Instead, what follows is the sort of drooling idiocy that would make even Benny Hill blush, as "randy" stewardesses "drop their knickers" while the offscreen narrator engages in supposedly saucy commentary of the "wink-wink, nudge-nudge" variety. There's body-painting, a stud pilot (Robin Stewart) who is sleeping with two stewardesses, and many dumb penis jokes. Lamond returned to the genre with A Slice of Life (1982), then made a failed mainstream film, Breakfast in Paris (1982), before wisely abstaining from directing for the next 10 years. ~ Robert Firsching, Rovi
