Rio - 2011 ***

'Rio' is quite a risqué film in that it shows off Rio De Janeiro in a slightly different way to how it actually is. It's also a bit of a strange topic in that it showcases a macaw bird as it's lead star (although I suppose 'Finding Nemo' was based around a fish). The bird, affirmably named Blu, cannot fly, and ends up being kidnapped from his human owner and taken to Rio. There, he meets a cast of eccentric characters including a female macaw named Jewel who he takes a shine to when they are both confined to the same cage.
It's quite a sweet film, with a couple of funky songs, but it's probably not one that I would see again.
