Rio de Janeiro's wonderful scenery and beautiful music make this film worth watching, especially with your girlfriend/wife. Unfortunately, the plot's got some holes in it and the movie as a whole doesn't flow very smoothly. However there's plenty of good acting and funny moments. But if you're heart-broken, this is not the film for you.
