Review April 2011

From the creator of Ice Age comes Rio, the story of a domesticated and rare Macaw named Blu, who lives the comfortable life with his owner, Linda, in Moose Lake, Minnesota. However, that comfort is disrupted when they learn that Blu is not the last of his kind. Rather, a female counterpart named Jewel resides in Rio de Janeiro. As a result, the two journey to the exotic land to reunite the rare birds and save the species. With bold, tropical colors, salsa sounds, and refreshing voiceovers from Jesse Eisenberg, Anne Hathaway, and more, Rio is pure, light hearted fun. Even though many of its story elements are neatly resolved, Rio remains an audio and visual delight. Not to mention a great way for the whole family to get the summer party started.
