Blu (Jesse Eisenberg) is a rare species of Blue Macaw,who is a resident at a bookstore in Moose Lake, Minnesota, and the last male of his kind. When scientists learn that another macaw was spotted in South America and that the macaw, Jewel (Anne Hathaway) is female, they take him out of Minnesota and send him to Rio de Janeiro to meet her. While there, he learns to confront his fear of flying in order to win her heart. Along the way, they get kidnapped by poachers to sell them to get a fortune. After they escape, they try to avoid the thieves and their pet Sulphur-crested Cockatoo Nigel (Jemaine Clement) with help from Rafael, a wise Toco Toucan (George Lopez); Luiz, a bulldog (Tracy Morgan); Linda, Blu’s owner (Leslie Mann); Flora, a Roseate Spoonbill (Wanda Sykes); Fernando, a teenage boy (Jake T.

This animated feature effort is a significant step forward from the studio’s “Ice Age” films, in the richness of its cast, the exuberance of its music and the vibrance of its palette.
|75|| Washington Post Ann Hornaday
This is a movie that imbues even the hoariest quest-peril-life lesson tropes of family animated films and imbues them with new life and rhythm.
|75|| San Francisco Chronicle Amy Biancolli
The humor’s a little strange, and the action’s a little frenetic, but all of it whooshes past in a swirl of tropical color and pseudo-South American bonhomie. Gorgeous scenery meets oddball characters and mild ethnic stereotyping.
|75|| Boston Globe Wesley Morris
Makes the surprising and seemingly inarguable assertion that, if we’re not all Brazilian, then, at the very least, Brazil is a state of mind.
|70|| Variety Leslie Felperin
Like its flight-challenged parrot protagonist, Rio takes a while to get off the ground but manages to soar by the end.
|70|| Los Angeles Times Betsy Sharkey
What we have here is truly a rare bird, and I’m not talking about the world’s last two blue macaws…No, the nearly extinct species of which I speak is the G-rated family movie – nice for a change to sit through a film with literally no cringe or fear factor.
|70|| Wall Street Journal Joe Morgenstern
The production eventually succumbs to motion overload-so many characters darting off in so many directions that the ending turns unfocused, even flat. But watching them go by is great fun, and there are worse things than a movie that can’t stop moving.
|63|| Rolling Stone Peter Travers
A brightly-colored, dizzying pinwheel of 3D animation in which nothing much happens. Sounds like summer is here early.
|63|| USA Today Claudia Puig
For its stunning iridescent look and infectious music, Rio is a refreshing adventure worth taking.
|50|| Entertainment Weekly Owen Gleiberman
The soundtrack, overseen by Sergio Mendes, has a few lively bossa nova moments, but not nearly enough.
