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.

Largely boring, repetitive sequel to the 2011 hit about exotically coloured birds of South America who sing and dance.

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.

Enjoyable music and traces of authentic Brazilian spirit provide reasonable compensation for Rio 2's derivative qualities and storytelling flaws (if only barely so).

"Rio 2" is a lively, colorful, amusing 3D computer-animated adventure.

Saldanha's sequel is infused with spectacular scenery, toe-tapping music, and a myriad of creatures and colors.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Where the film excels ... in an even more pronounced way than the first film, is in the choreographed animation for the musical numbers.

In spite of some sloppiness this movie earns a lot of good will for having its heart in the right place.

Although at times over-plotted and slow to get going, this sequel is bright and entertaining, with musical numbers that rock the rainforest.
