Set in the magnificent city of Rio de Janeiro and the lush rainforest of Brazil, the comedy-adventure centers on Blu, a rare macaw who thinks he is the last of his kind. When Blu discovers there's another - and that she's a she - he leaves the comforts of his cage in small town Minnesota and heads to Rio. But it's far from love at first sight between the domesticated and flight-challenged Blu and the fiercely independent, high-flying female, Jewel. Unexpectedly thrown together, they embark on an adventure of a lifetime, where they learn about friendship, love, courage, and being open to life's many wonders. RIO brings together a menagerie of vivid characters, a heart-warming story, colorful backdrops, energizing Latin and contemporary music, and family-friendly song and dance. RIO is a 3-D animation feature from the makers of the "Ice Age" films.

Carlos Saldanha, director of the phenomenally successful Ice Age films, ventures to sunnier climes for this joyous computer-animated romantic comedy. Set to intoxicating Brazilian rhythms and bursting with colour, Rio follows the same template as Ice Age, introducing us to a menagerie of wacky and neurotic critters, whose fates rest in the balance. Slapstick comedy here comes from a gang of larcenous monkeys, who pick the pockets of unsuspecting tourists, and a bulldog suffering from excessive saliva.
