I found it quite charming.

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.

Comical, colorful, wonderfully cast and beautifully animated, "Rio" is the first Blue Sky movie that could be compared to the best of Pixar.

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.

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.

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.

Since the little ones will be amused, the high-flying Rio won't ruffle any feathers.
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.
April 23, 2011
Swaggering and splashy, even though its predictably stereotypical banality prevents it from ever achieving full flight.
April 22, 2011
The urban/tropical landscapes and Carnival backdrop add vibrancy to a smart romance-adventure that borrows from classic Bob Hope suspense-comedies and even Hitchcock's 'The 39 Steps'...
April 21, 2011
Rio features great vocal work from Jesse Eisenberg, Anne Hathaway and Tracy Morgan and a tired plot that needs the eye-popping animation to keep it flying high.
April 20, 2011
It's only real downfall is its lack of ambition to be more than decent. Saldanha has also been unerringly safe in most of his story telling choices, with little unexpected character development and quite a bit of overly tidy moralizing.

Exuberant and full of life, music and colour as the city for which it's named, Rio's combination of a fun script, excellent soundtrack and stunning visuals will delight the entire family.
