Countless shots of the Christ the Redeemer statue notwithstanding, for all we're told about the titular location, they might just as well spread the love in Jersey.
The city of Rio is easy to love. The movie "Rio, I Love You," not so much.
If the beauty of Rio de Janeiro is jaw-dropping, so, too, is the slipshod manner in which the aforementioned talents go about their business there.
Even viewers who were transported by the considerable charm of 2006's "Paris, je t'aime" will be hard-pressed to show any love for the latest entry in the travelog/anthology.
Striking moments are overtaken by the fruit-juice mediocrity of everything else, particularly a connecting narrative about a cabdriver who insists on telling all his riders about the woman who got away.
Stuffed with touristy images but not enough dramatic substance to make any of them count.
"Rio, I Love You" is made up of segments that don't flow well. Overly long and boring, the film never truly captures the vibe and personality of its title city.
Rio, I Love You proves that it is infinitely harder said than done, however, to produce a quality anthology film about the heart's desires.
Rio, I Love You is totally the brainchild of a tourism board.
Ten filmmakers probe the many different shades of love in the Brazilian city.
A third metropolis gets the "city of love" coochy-coo... It's not much of a calling card for whichever city the producers hope to descend onto next.
"Rio, I Love You" doesn't inspire feelings of love and adventure, it mostly triggers the urge to check a timepiece every five minutes.
More like an antiseptic postcard of the city filled with stereotypes, clichés and cheesy dialogue that make everything look like a Brazilian soap opera of the worst kind - which is a shock considering the excellent directors and the wasted talent of so many great actors.
