Review Stream: Banana Split

Movie: Banana Split


Where to watch it: Netflix

Spoilers: Yes

Rating: C+

April and Nick were high school sweethearts. However, at the end of their senior year, they were accepted into different colleges. Nick decides to end the relationship. April discovers this by finding pictures of Nick with his new girlfriend, Clara, on Instagram. April does what all normal girls would do – she internet stalks Clara.

April goes to a party that the new girlfriend, Clara, is at. They end up talking and, even though Clara is now dating Nick, April really likes her. They decide to keep their newfound friendship a secret from everyone; afraid that it will make things awkward. It doesn’t take long before they consider each other to be best friends. Eventually, things get dicey, their friendship is exposed, and ultimately, they must deal with jealousy over who is dating Nick.

Is it worth watching: Ehhhh…? It’s ok. I really like parts of this movie. The best part is that the focus of this movie is on the relationship of the female characters. It’s their friendship that is important thing here. In the end, it is what ultimately drives the film. They do not let a boy come between them. I love that the actress that plays April wrote the screenplay! But somehow the movie feels hollow. Like we got beginning and the end but the forgot to put in the cream filling. I think that this movie is going to hit home with the right audience, but it will be a miss with others.

Once upon a time, Sharon was invited to attend a comic convention. She had always wanted to go to a comic-con but thought it was out of her reach. While at this convention, she met Richard who asked her if she could write. She scoffed. Of course she was capable of writing. But then he clarified and asked if she would be willing to a be a writer for TBK Magazine. She agreed. Little did she know that she was signing on to become a podcaster, assistant editor of the magazine, Vice President of a publishing company, best mensch, and a sister. Her whole world would expand for the better after that trip in 2016. She would be forever grateful. The magazine would be her safe haven and the staff would become a part of her family. And still to this day, Richard has not fulfilled his promise of singing the cow song to Sharon.   Sharon was born in mid 1980’s and raised in Northeastern Arkansas. She has been married to her childhood sweetheart, Jesse, since 2004. They have two amazing sons. Outside of her official TBK responsibilities, she works as a nurse.   She loves theater, costumes, cosplay, and Halloween. She is addicted to Chapstick and will ALWAYS have at least one with her at all times. She despises spiral staircase, escalators, and people that do not understand how four way stops work.
