I found it quite charming.

I've never heard an adult say, "I must go see that film. It has Jesse Eisenberg's voice in it." They could have spent the money on something else, like a better story.

This isn't revolutionary animation, but it's warm, sincere and huge-hearted. I was dazzled by all the colors; your kids are gonna go nuts for them.

While it may entertain the kiddies for a while, for the older folks out there (and that means anyone 10+), Rio is just another animated yawner.

Comical, colorful, wonderfully cast and beautifully animated, "Rio" is the first Blue Sky movie that could be compared to the best of Pixar.
September 20, 2012
This is simply a film that both kids and parents can enjoy together, which, according to the consensuses for other recent kids' films, hasn't happened for awhile, so my advice would be to take advantage of it

Basic, good-natured cinematic charm isn't something that should be easily dismissed.

Bright and chippy as a roomful of parrots, and the best thing Saldanha has done since the first Ice Age.

You'd be the world's biggest grinch not to get a kick out of this feather fest.

There is nothing wrong with this film - the voice cast are all good, the animation is colorful and the script peppered with one-liners. But it all seems so formulaic.

Rio combines excellent visuals and a witty, modern script that will appeal to audience members both young and old.

There's lots of color, some gorgeous animation, a running beat of lively (if not always memorable) music and the energy of lovely tropical birds in flight. The rest is formula...

This might be the first family film in which sex... serves as the narrative lynchpin.
May 31, 2011
Even if the story lacks the depth or originality of some of the recent crop of superlative animated films, 'Rio' has an innocent charm to it -- and an explosion of color.
May 27, 2011
The posters say From the creators of Ice Age, so don't say you haven't been warned.

Since the little ones will be amused, the high-flying Rio won't ruffle any feathers.
May 1, 2011
If the birds aren't precisely "of a feather," as they suggest, they are bright and loud and alike enough to establish that this Rio is not real in any way.
April 29, 2011
Rio is a beautifully animated family frolic sure to keep the little ones joyfully content.
April 23, 2011
With bold, tropical colors, salsa sounds, and refreshing voiceovers from Jesse Eisenberg, Anne Hathaway, and more, Rio is pure, light hearted fun.
