Fifteen years later, Blu is a domesticated and intelligent bird that does not fly and lives a comfortable life with bookshop owner Linda.

Incredible! You would rather be with a... a... a human than with your own kind!
Well, that human has given me love and affection for the past fifteen years, whereas my own kind tries to strangle me after fifteen seconds.
Yeah, well, because of them, I've lost everything. You can't trust them!
Of course you can trust humans!
[he hears Jewel make a noise]
[he sees a man hover over him]
Oh! Hi there.

It's just one long ad for Rio, that you have to pay to see! There has to be some sort of funding provided by the Rio tourism board, otherwise Fox did a hell of a job of promoting.
It's not really all that funny, I felt like I was being sold something. We didn't like it at all I'm sorry to say, I had hopes of watching a cute movie with the wife.
Did anyone else feel like this? We can't be the only ones, no one else we know saw the film and probably won't after we told them about it.
I thought a few parts of it was nice, hence the 2 star rating instead of a 1 which it would otherwise receive. It is probably a good movie for kids because they won't realize the ad they are being shown and it is pretty colorful with a lot of music and some action.
