96. RIO

                 My wife loves cartoon movies. Like, LOVES them. Now I dont have too much trouble with them and she really wanted to see the new cartoon movie RIO. I thought it was about the Angry Birds Rio but it wasnt. But it does have George Lopez and Tracey Morgan so that was good!
           Rio is the story about a blue cockatoo that is kidnapped, birdnapped?, taken from his native homeland and transferred to the US but ends up falling off the truck in Minnesota. Where a lovely little finds him, raises him, loves him and they become the best of friends. This cockatoo is voiced by Jesse Eisenberg who created facebook.
                 The story takes off when we find out that Blu, great name for a cockatoo, is the only remaining Blue Cockatoo in the entire world and is needed in Rio to mate with the only female Blue Cockatoo voiced by Anne Hathaway. Of course things dont go that easy and they are kidnapped, birdnapped?, taken again!!! They escape and the race is on to get back to their owners. Along the way they are joined by a Lopez who was great as Tucan and Jordan as a bulldog. Oh and the soundtrack is awesome!

Final Verdict: I wouldnt own it but I think my wife will buy it!


  1. Great soundtrack! Gotta love Tracy Morgan! Really fun and funny movie. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

  2. This movie didn't look at all but now I kind of want to see it.

  3. Have not seen yet...I really don't like tracy morgan very much, but!...I may see this anyway.
