Rio (2011) | Directed by Carlos Saldanha

Grade: B

Thoughts: Adorable and cute animated film that is, in all honesty, kinda fluffy. What’s nice about this film is that, while it does have some environmental subtext (save the birds!), it isn’t shoved down your throat like, say, Wall-E (sorry, I still love you though). Charming cast. If Eisenberg does this well playing a neurotic, frantic character, I hope he does just as well in Woody Allen’s new film. Hathaway is great. But will.i.am is obnoxious, as are the human characters. Not sure why there are so many Angry Bird derived characters though.
