A classic tale of self-discovery, romance, and adventure, Rio is the story of Blu, a flightless macaw who was taken from the forests of Rio de Janeiro as a young bird and raised by a kind girl in a small Minnesota town. When an ornithologist comes to town and informs Blu's now-grown owner Linda that Blu is the last male of his species, Blu and Linda return to Rio so that Blu can mate with a feisty female named Jewel. Thus begins an adventure in which Blu encounters everything from the complexities of courtship and love, to thugs involved in an exotic animal theft ring, strange new friendships--including one with an overly friendly slobbering bulldog--and a crazy ride through a Carnaval parade. Blu and Linda both mature as a result of their journey in Rio, and love ensures that life will never be quite the same for either ever again. The animation in Rio is quite impressive, the characters are endearing, the Brazilian music is very appealing, and the star-studded voice cast includes Anne Hathaway, Jesse Eisenberg, Will i Am, Wanda Sykes, Jane Lynch, George Lopez, and Jamie Foxx. While the story doesn't really offer anything new--instead playing much like a rehashing of some of the major plot points from movies like Madagascar, Finding Nemo, and Babe--that doesn't mean the film isn't perfectly entertaining for both kids and adults.

This is the bilingual version of the movie / DVD.
Great animation, lots of colors, and very good and fun story of a rare bird kidnapped from his owner who will do all he can to get him back. Great and funny characters along the way.
You must see it with the kids (or with the kid inside of you)!
The story is simple enough, but the characters, both humans and animals, are funny, have great voice acting and animation is top notch. Granted it's not Pixar style in terms of textures, but honestly, it didn't need to be. Fox definitely is getting nice titles out there and if there is a sequel to Rio I'd love to see it. The down of things? Well, the story may be on the easy side, with few characters to populate it so that you know just who's going to end up with who... but the parallels between the bird and his "owner" is quite interesting though predictable... The camera work is, at times, very epic in scope especially during a flying sequence around Rio de Janeiro and manages to work until its very end with a laugh.
Special features are nice enough for older people to enjoy, though it's all done after a little over 80 minutes.
My 9 year old grand niece loves this movie and has seen it about 3 times.
