Remember when Woody Allen used to be funny? Anyone who has never seen Allen's pre-Soon Yi movies should check out Bananas. Tonight, Lakewood Public Library shows the 1971 comedy classic about a nebbishy product tester (played by the director, natch) who inadvertently becomes a South American guerrilla. As with all of Allen's films, there's a fairly high ratio of duds. But the jokes (many at the expense of Latin America dictators) come so fast, there's hardly time to notice. Best of all, tonight's screening is free!
Fri., Sept. 1, 7 p.m.
