Your kids will be entertained and it's not a bad movie.

Light and likable, Rio 2 doesn't dazzle us with originality, but it's attractive and it's fun, good enough reasons to go see it with the family.

A smart spectacle that moves like a mini-musical, the 3-D animated Rio 2 is also a superior sequel.

Rio 2 may not bring a lot of originality to the screen, but it's a simple entertaining alternative to the movies the kids have already seen, and that might be just enough to turn a profit.

Colourful and well-paced except for a cloyingly sweet song or two, the kids will enjoy this one.

If Rio showed that 20th Century Fox Animation had finally moved into Disney's neighborhood, with Rio 2 they've taken off their shoes and propped their feet up on the coffee table.

The plot struggles to take wing at first, but Eisenberg is very funny as the fretful, accident-prone Blu.

I'm endlessly frustrated at not being able to have entertainment without a side of political and social preaching. Still, Rio 2 is a cute enough movie.

I enjoyed it while I was watching it.

The film is at its most entertaining in the musical sequences.
April 13, 2014
A frantic, family-friendly, musical adventure that's filled with familiar feathered friends.
April 12, 2014
bucks the usual law of diminishing sequel returns with a great story, even better new dangers, and a voice performance by Kristen Chenowith as Gabi, a lovesick poison dart frog that is destined to become a classic.
April 11, 2014
Enjoyable music and traces of authentic Brazilian spirit provide reasonable compensation for Rio 2's derivative qualities and storytelling flaws (if only barely so).
April 11, 2014
"Rio 2" is a lively, colorful, amusing 3D computer-animated adventure.
April 11, 2014
Saldanha's sequel is infused with spectacular scenery, toe-tapping music, and a myriad of creatures and colors.
April 11, 2014
The colour and sounds of Brazil ensure Rio 2 keeps its exotic plumage, but the plot and pastiche characters come straight out of Southern California's big fat fanny pack.
April 11, 2014
Rio 2 has a childish, delicious-looking beauty. It's like watching a box of Froot Loops explode just beyond the tip of your nose. Bring milk.
April 11, 2014
Director and cowriter Carlos Saldanha's film is, above all, a spectacular CG travelogue of his native Brazil, with a virtual zoo of Amazonian residents in their otherworldly natural habitats.
April 11, 2014
Like its peppy predecessor, Rio 2 doesn't look or sound like other animated licenses to print money. That alone is reason enough to appreciate it.
