Critic Reviews for That Night in Rio

All Critics (1)

Yes, it's that kind of patently silly plot, but it works nicely here thanks to pleasant players, luminous Technicolor, a bright screenplay, and good songs.

Audience Reviews for That Night in Rio

Remake of FOLIES BERGERE is an upgrade: a lush, fast-moving Technicolor frolic with several standout songs: "Boa Noite," "They Met in Rio," "Chica Chica Boom Chic," and "I Yi, Yi, Yi, Yi (I Like You Very Much)" - the last two sung by the marvelous Carmen Miranda.

It's an alright film, but the plot is farfetched (that Larry could do such a good impersonation of the Baron that he could pass as him - even to his close acquaintances and his wife).
