DVD Rio 2 : With Rio 2, the creators of Rio give us more of everything that their first film had in just the right doses. But if this sequel proves anything, it’s that more is not always better. There are more stars in this birds-of-the-Amazon musical, with Kristin Chenoweth, Rita Moreno, Andy Garcia and Bruno Mars joining in.
There are more animals for those stars to play, and there’s more story, as Jewel (Anne Hathaway) and Blu (Jesse Eisenberg) take their brood into the Amazon to help Linda (Leslie Mann) and her scientist husband, Tulio (Rodrigo Santoro), track down a rumored lost, last flock of bright blue macaws of their species. But one thing the cluttered, overlong Rio 2 lacks in extra supply is jokes. A script designed to give cute moments to everybody from the first film as well as all those brought in for the second is a cumbersome, humor-starved affair. On DVD, Blu-ray, and 3D Blu-ray.
