Marisol rumbo a Río (1963)
User ReviewsReview this title
- Peter Garner
But they cannot afford two tickets so Marisol is packed into a crate as a dog only to discover she has to spend the voyage in the hold with all the other pets. The scene where Marisol tries to steal food from one of the dogs is priceless.
When she is discovered and chased all over the boat and the fact that she is saved by the same American that we met at the gas station is a little contrived but serves it purpose. Marisol is allowed to stay on board after demonstrating her dancing and singing ability. Of course!
When the sisters meet there is the predictable and comic confusion with Mariluz's boyfriend, who Marisol sees flirting on the beach which Mariluz is not aware of, and she eventually shows her sister what he is really like.
The rest of the story is predictable; the money being sent to his sister in Spain has been intercepted by his secretary and her lover, which is why they are poor. The girls and Mariluz's friend have discovered this and decide to put a stop to it, they get caught and the villains get the wrong girl and they are all rescued by ... the American who just turns up out of the blue again. But that is the only thing that could perhaps spoil an otherwise thoroughly enjoyable romp
Well worth watching.
