Rio PARENTS GUIDE

Parents should know that Rio is a colorful musical adventure that takes place in Rio de Janeiro. Among the light-hearted upbeat songs are a couple of scary characters such as the main villain, a white cockatoo and a couple of clumsy exotic animal smugglers.  There are also some scenes of skimpy swimsuits on the beach and Carnival costumes to be aware of as well as flirting among the two Macaws that are expected to save their species. Some mild bad language is heard throughout, especially during some tense scenes.  Rio is a heartwarming love story about the power of friendship, love, and stepping outside your comfort zone.

Rio REVIEW

This is a great movie, especially for families. I saw this movie with a packed theater of families and kids and the room was full of laughter.

Some of the things I enjoyed most about this movie were the vivid color, jokes, and music. The storyline was a little too simple but it was still complete. There were no holes in the story and it worked well for this film and age group.

The colors of this film were very exotic. There was color everywhere. In the opening scene, you’re immediately introduced to the many exotic birds and their beautiful colors. This is a great movie to watch on a rainy afternoon when you need something besides gray skies.

Rio will have you laughing and singing along in no time.

With an all-star cast, you’re likely to recognize many of the voices even if you don’t recognize names like Jesse Eisenberg, Anne Hathaway, George Lopez, Jamie Foxx, Will I Am, Tracy Morgan and Leslie Mann. Everyone in this movie has funny lines and you’ll enjoy the different styles of humor throughout. Many of these familiar names also contribute to the great songs that are sure to have you tapping your foot and swaying to the beat.

This is a great movie for everyone and I highly recommend seeing this in the theater and at home on video. It just might brighten up your day.

Rio top movie star voices are Jesse Eisenberg, Anna Hathaway, Leslie Mann, Jane Lynch, Will.i.am, Wanda Sykes, George Lopez, Jamie Foxx, Rodrigo Santoro, Jemaine Clement, Tracy Morgan, and more. Featured Animation ranks this movie a 4 on a scale from 1 to 5.
