It's a jungle out there for Blu, Jewel and their three kids after they're hurtled from Rio de Janeiro to the wilds of the Amazon. As Blu tries to fit in, he goes beak-to-beak with the vengeful Nigel, and meets his father-in-law.
Spoiled by their upbringing with no idea what wild life is really like, four animals from New York Central Zoo escape, unwittingly assisted by four absconding penguins, and find themselves in Madagascar, among a bunch of merry lemurs
Alex, Marty, Gloria and Melman are still fighting to get home to their beloved Big Apple. Their journey takes them through Europe where they find the perfect cover: a traveling circus, which they reinvent - Madagascar style.
Barry B. Benson, a bee just graduated from college, is disillusioned at his lone career choice: making honey.

Boog, a domesticated 900lb. Grizzly bear finds himself stranded in the woods 3 days before Open Season. Forced to rely on Elliot, a fast-talking mule deer, the two form an unlikely friendship and must quickly rally other forest animals if they are to form a rag-tag army against the hunters.
In Rio de Janeiro, baby macaw, Blu, is captured by dealers and smuggled to the USA. While driving through Moose Lake, Minnesota, the truck that is transporting Blu accidentally drops Blu's box on the road. A girl, Linda, finds the bird and raises him with love. Fifteen years later, Blu is a domesticated and intelligent bird that does not fly and lives a comfortable life with bookshop owner Linda. Out of the blue, clumsy Brazilian ornithologist, Tulio, visits Linda and explains that Blu is the last male of his species, and he has a female called Jewel in Rio de Janeiro. He invites Linda to bring Blu to Rio so that he and Jewel can save their species. Linda travels with Blu and Tulio to Rio de Janeiro and they leave Blu and Jewel in a large cage in the institute where Tulio works. While they are having dinner, smugglers break into the institute and steal Blu and Jewel to sell them. Linda and Tulio look everywhere for Blu, who is chained to Jewel and hidden in a slum. Meanwhile, Jewel ... Written by

When Blu tells Jewel to check his math to verify that his plan to break their chain will work, a patch of sand is shown where Blu has scratched in the equation "f=G (m1 x m2 / R^2)". This is the formula for calculating the gravitational attraction between two bodies and can apply both literally to the rock and chain/Earth, as well as figuratively to Blu and Jewel. See more »
When Tulio visits Linda in Minnesota, there are two blue pens or pencils on the table. When Tulio throws Blu, the two pens or pencils have disappeared. See more »
[in the smugglers' float]
I'm gonna get you outta here.
No, no! You can't be here! You have to go! Nigel is...
[suddenly Nigel attacks Blu and throws Blu in a cage]
Hello, pretty bird. So kind of you to join our little soiree.
Oh, come on! You really think I came alone? I got three of the roughest, meanest, craziest birds in all of Rio right behind me.
Woohoo! You know there guys!
[Blu sees that Nigel has placed Nico, Pedro and Rafael in a cage nearby]
We're saved! That's right! ...

Well, it's very difficult, specially for a Brazilian, not to rate this "thing" as 1 (awful).
What we see in this movie is a nightmare for any educated Brazilian, and the "song" remains the same: A movie that keeps on selling our image as a country that only cares about carnival, naked women, parties, soccer and having fun all the time.
I wonder when we will see people actually thinking before making such travesties related to my country's name. Where are the movies related to our discoveries in various education fields, such as engineering, aeronautics, space, physics, alternative fuels, and all sorts of applied science? If this thing called RIO is what we send to the outter world, what else will they think of us? Not to mention the fact that the state of RIO is an embarrassment to us all. Corrupted to its roots and absolutely violent, although our dear press pathetically sometimes tries to sell an otherwise image. Ask anybody from Brazil, it's not just me saying it.
Back to the RIO movie: Monkeys stealing iPhones? Shantytowns (although there is no translation for it, that's how the New York Times has called our 'favelas')? Carnival? Whores on Copacabana beach? Soccer? My country had enough of this. Make a visit to Sao Paulo (among many other places) and you will discover what Brazil is.
Sorry for the long text, but I had to say it.
