A vaguely cute family movie. Where this one succeeds is visually. It’s all very colorful and a lot of fun. Placing the movie in Rio during Carnivale was a wise choice, it was probably a lot of fun to make too. Also, the voice cast is pretty funny. It’s nice hearing Jesse Eisenberg not be dry and humorless. And Anne Hathaway does a good job as well. I also liked Leslie Mann and Rodrigo Santoro as the humans trying to find them. Some parts were really cute and funny, others were a little too over the top. Also, thought the musical numbers were lame. This is pleasant and cute enough for one viewing though.
