Rio DVD Review Part 1

My kids were absolutely thrilled when they heard I had the chance to review the newest movie coming to DVD, ; Especially the oldest, which is so funny since she's in college!  Here's a little bit of info about the movie:

As summer heats up, spread your wings and celebrate with the funniest birds in town! The all-new comedy-adventure RIO comes to Blu-ray and DVD from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. RIO brings together vivid characters and colorful backdrops amidst energizing Latin and contemporary tunes, creating the ultimate family-friendly music and dance experience for audiences of all ages.  In addition to more than one hour of special bonus features and materials, consumers will have access to all-new exclusive levels of the smash video game hit Angry Birds Rio® that showcase your favorite characters from the film!

Captured as a young bird from the wild, Blu (Jesse Eisenberg, The Social Network) is a domesticated Spix Macaw living thousands of miles away from his homeland, Brazil. When his human owner Linda (Leslie Mann, 17 Again) discovers that he is the last male of his kind, they head south to Rio de Janeiro to meet the only other female. But it’s far from love at first sight between the socially-awkward, flight-challenged Blu and the fiercely independent, high-flying female, Jewel (Anne Hathaway, The Princess Diaries). Shortly after Blu’s arrival, the two rare birds are captured by greedy animal smugglers and find themselves lost in the Brazilian rainforest. Unexpectedly thrown together, they embark on a hilarious and clumsy adventure where they learn about friendship, love, courage and spreading one’s wings to fly.

My thoughts:

This movie is very colorful and bright with a inspirational message about believing with your heart.  Children are sure to love hip hop/Latin musical number and you might sing along too.  I thought the Minnesota humor was cute, (even though it's not as boring here as they made it seem).

Watch the trailer here.

Disclosure: I received this DVD in exchange for my honest review.  All opinions are mine!
