Caine plays a man on holiday in Rio with his best friend. Both men have teenage daughters with them. When Caine falls for the amorous daughter (played by Michelle Johnson) of his best friend, they embark on a secret, if slightly one-sided relationship. Johnson's father is furious when he finds out about the 'older man' in his daughter's life, and sets out to hunt him down with the aid of Caine! Written by
You can blame the night, blame the wine, blame the moon in her eyes, but when all else fails . . . you'd better . . . Blame it on Rio!

Co-screenwriter Charlie Peters
previously 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 the American Kiss Me Goodbye
(1982) remake. Peters then around two years later co-wrote this 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 the source 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
