Bursting with color and rippling with samba rhythms, Rio makes you wonder why animated films haven't spent more time in Brazil.

Boxoffice Magazine
Rio is the biggest and brightest animated triumph since "Toy Story 3."

Orlando Sentinel
Comical, colorful, wonderfully cast and beautifully animated.

Voice work across the board is top-notch, with the Black Eyed Peas' will.i.am and Jamie Foxx adding sass to their smooth-talking bird buddies, and comic George Lopez solid as a party-loving toucan named Rafael.

Variety
Like its flight-challenged parrot protagonist, Rio takes a while to get off the ground but manages to soar by the end.

The only thing surprising about this lackluster animated production is that it attracted an A-list voice cast.

Okay, so it's not exactly a groundbreaking advance from the team behind "Ice Age," but with its kaleidoscope of colour and heaps of humour, you'll be charmed.
50
Village Voice
Too timid to be either inspired or outrageously inept, Rio is merely a bird of a familiar feather.
50
The soundtrack, overseen by Sergio Mendes, has a few lively bossa nova moments, but not nearly enough.
40
Compared to Pixar's "Up," a much more organic and heartfelt story about making friends in far-flung places, Rio simply feels rote.
