Synopsis: From the makers of the hit ICE AGE series comes RIO, a comedy adventure about taking a walk on the wild side. Blu is a domesticated Macaw who never learned to fly, living a comfortable life with his owner and best friend Linda in the small town of Moose Lake, Minnesota. Blu and Linda think he’s the last of his kind, but when they learn about another Macaw who lives in Rio de Janeiro, they head to the faraway and exotic land to find Jewel, Blu’s female counterpart. Not long after they arrive, Blu and Jewel are kidnapped by a group of bungling animal smugglers. With the help of street smart Jewel, and a group of wise-cracking and smooth-talking city birds, Blu escapes. Now, with his new friends by his side, Blu will have to find the courage to learn to fly, thwart the kidnappers who are hot on their trail, and return to Linda, the best friend a bird ever had.

Review: Rio is pure, light hearted fun.

“Rio” has everything you desire within its 96-minute running time.

This movie features great vocal work from Jesse Eisenberg, Anne Hathaway and Tracy Morgan. The screenwriters have come up with a wonderful story filled with humor and romance. Fun for the kids and the adults. Rio is an extravagant family film with likable characters, a phenomenal visual aspect and a charming story.  You’ll have a smile on your face the whole darn time. I call it  A Vibrant Cultural Celebration. Storks samba! Toucans tumba! Parrots party in kaleidoscopic formations to the music.

Some live-action films set in exotic locales can be so atmospheric and picturesque that viewers walk away feeling as if they’ve taken a short vacation. “Rio” accomplishes this feat, which must be a minor miracle for an animated movie. It is a splashy display of the innocent, artful exuberance that, these days, the directors of live-action films have left to the guys with pixels.
