    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    A brightly-colored, dizzying pinwheel of 3D animation in which nothing much happens. Sounds like summer is here early. show more

    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. show more

    For its stunning iridescent look and infectious music, Rio is a refreshing adventure worth taking. show more

    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. show more

    Give Saldanha's film an A-plus for visuals and a B-minus for story. show more

    The main reason this gorgeous-looking, sweet-hearted but so-so movie remains grounded is a herky-jerky, cobbled-together story that squawks when it should sing. show more

    Voice work across the board is top-notch, with the Black Eyed Peas' and Jamie Foxx adding sass to their smooth-talking bird buddies, and comic George Lopez solid as a party-loving toucan named Rafael. show more

    Name the first things that come to anyone's mind about Rio de Janeiro - samba, soccer, sunbathing, Carnival - and those are the building blocks of this movie. Expect the expected. show more

    If nothing else, Rio is unabashedly jubilant. show more

    Funny, but not a movie you\'d want to watch twice.

    My first initial opinion of it was it was going to be stupid but, it ended up being a good cast and fun to watch. Good for all ages, if your not close minded.

    Boring. When I watched it, (my friend\'s son was over) He wanted me to watch it with him. It was torture.
