So practically everybody in Brazil speaks with an American accent, eh? (Other than the cockatoo from Australia.)

When Disney made a Brazilian parrot movie -- "The Three Caballeros" (1945) -- their character, José Carioca, actually sounded Brazilian. Disney's film also managed to be fresh and entertaining while simultaneously honouring the two Latin American countries that saw combat against the Axis powers: Brazil (in the Italian campaign) and Mexico (in the Philippines).

P.S. How come nobody on this page knows how to spell the word "favourite"?

I absolutely loved this movie. I watched both the first and second but, this summer when I had the time I rewatched it with my friends and honestly I was not one bit disappointed and trust me neither will you because the movie is so cute. This is one of those movies that no matter how many times you rewatch this that you will never get bored. I loved the animation and the storyline. The characters were very well thought out and this movie is not only perfect for younger audiences but families and older kids as well. Even though I am a teenager and this movie is mostly intended for kids, I can still appreciate the good lessons throughout. I totally recommend this movie to people of all ages (kids may enjoy it more). I give this movie a 4.8 out of 5 stars.

This cartoon/musical/comedy/action movie manages to captivate audiences from around the world with it’s themes of song and dance, and beautiful imagery and colour usage. A domesticated macaw bird named Blu never learned how to fly since he was captured after birth until he was adopted by a woman in the United States. It was once believed that Blu was the only one of his kind left, until a female bird named Jewel is found. This brings Blu to her in Rio de Janeiro, where they are then captured together once again and must find their way back to freedom. This movie makes the realities of friendship, love, freedom, and right vs. wrong easily accessible for children, making it an excellent film. I would rate this movie 4.5/5 stars.

After being captured by smugglers at birth, a macaw named Blu was raised in Minnesota by Linda never learning to fly. However, he enjoyed the pampering of domestic life and was believed to be the last of his species. After discovering that there was one last female macaw left named Jewel in Rio de Janeiro, Blu and Linda make their way to find Jewel so that the species may be saved. However, the two birds are captured by smugglers once again. This comedic action film by released in 2011 and directed by Carlos Saldanha. No matter where you are from, every family can enjoy sitting down and watching this movie together.

Blu, the main character, lives in Brazil’s beautiful Rio de Janeiro until he is captured by dealers. They attempt to smuggle him to the USA; however, they drop his cage along the way. A girl named Linda finds Blu and keeps him for the next 15 years. One day, another character named Tulio visits Linda and informs her of Blu’s status as the last male bird of his species. They attempt to save Blu’s species by bringing him together with a female of his species named Jewel. Once again, Blu is captured, but this time Jewel is also captured. Overall, the movie is very kid friendly, but even adults can enjoy it.

L love rio l just love it

Rio... I didn't really like it too much. Yes it was funny. I loved the part when the disco ball came and Blu said "I had nothing to do with that." And then Jewel attacks him. I watched this movie in school when it came out in 2011. The class liked it, but i don't know if everyone loved it. I kind of like it, just kind of. Once it was on TV and they put it on so many times, it's getting really boring every year they put it on.

The Best Thing About This Film Is Blu's Owner, Linda Gunderson. Leslie Mann Is Well Cast As Her Voice.

A pampered blue macaw (named uncreatively Blu) who has lived his life walking about with his human owner under the impression that he was the last macaw deals with culture shock when he is sent to Rio de Janeiro to mate with a feisty female macaw (named Jewel) in order to continue the species. However, on account of their rarity, Blu and Jewel are forced to fight capture from various animal smugglers who want to make a fortune off of them; all the while, Blu needs to learn to fly in order to make his great escape.

Hey, where are you going?
Blu?
Blu, What wrong?
Nothing.
Everything is perfect.
You be off to the rainforest.
I be back to Linda.
Just like we planned.
- I...
Hey birds! Stop yapping
and start flapping.
Let's go!
I guess I thought maybe...
- What, that you'll come to Minnesota?
Great, I guess I make you a scarf.
No, that's not what I meant.
