Trivia

The profound comment that the Brazilian waiter said to Matthew Hollis (Michael Caine), when Hollis said, "I wasn't thinking what I was doing", was: "It's only when a man is not thinking what he's doing, that you can be sure, he's doing what he's thinking". See more »

Goofs

While shaving, Matthew nicks his cheek and it is bleeding. The cut appears in the next scene which takes place just a few minutes later, but in the scene that takes place later on that day, the cut has disappeared completely. See more »

Funny, sexy, serious
8 July 2001 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

This movie is one of Caine's great comedies and should be watched immediately. Blame it on rio also stars Michelle Johnson, Joseph Bologna, Valerie Harper, Demi Moore. The film has many funny twists and turns to keep you laughing and guessing until the end. Nudity is all over this movie especially Michelle Johnson and a little bit of Demi Moore. Michael, Joseph, and Valerie are pros at this comedy and the two amateurs do a pretty good stab at making you laugh your head off. Blame it on Rio starts off a little slow but soon it is moving at fast speed and you better hang on to your seatcushions. A serious topic is discussed in both a serious and funny manner allowing you to see different sides of a story. This movie is like a favorite candy or soda that you cannot get enough of and that you want to have more of immediately. So kick back and relax and enjoy all the wild antics abound for you in this crazy comedy and at the end Blame it on Rio.
