Trivia

Screenwriter Charlie Peters wrote Kiss Me Goodbye (1982) which was a remake of the Brazilian movie Dona Flor and Her Two Husbands (1976) [Dona Flor and Her Two Husbands]. That movie and its source novel were both set in Brazil, South America, where Blame It on Rio (1984) is mostly set, with the American remake Kiss Me Goodbye (1982) being set in the USA. The original Brazilian film had a number of 'boudoir farce' story elements which were taken out for this American remake. Peters then around two years later co-wrote another American remake, Blame It on Rio (1984), which also takes place in Brazil, re-setting the action there from the Côte d'Azur in France where its source French film, In a Wild Moment (1977) [One Wild Moment], was mostly set. But this time the remake, Blame It on Rio (1984), did not have the 'boudoir farce' story elements removed from its source foreign film, as had been the case with Kiss Me Goodbye (1982). See more »

Wonderful Movie!
17 April 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I absolutely adored this movie! I thought the acting was first rate as was the script. Sally Field is adorable as a widow who's about to remarry. No one but James Caan could have pulled off the role of Jolly as he did. He's entertaining, light-hearted, and gets his point across in a rather different way. This movie is one of my all time favorites. I especially love the way Jolly helps Kay to get hold of her life and move on. Very entertaining! Worth the watch.
