Genuinely Funny
12 October 2010 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Orinigally titled Gringos no Rio, Rio Sex Comedy is definitely worth the trip to the cinema! I am an American living in Rio and thought the film was a dead on portrayal of the culture shock we encounter upon arrival here; rife with authentic, honest, and spontaneously felt comedic scenes.

If you are not a Carioca or a gringo that has spent a significant amount of time in Rio, you will probably not understand the film or why it was made. The performances by Fisher Stevens, Charlotte Rampling and Bill Pullman, Irene Jacobs, and others were carbon copies of the characters they played-kudos to them and to the filmmaker. The fact that there probably wasn't much research or scripting involved in this film only helped the end result...By the way, the theater where the film was shown was full of laughter and smiles from the moment the film began until the moment it ended...
