Anyway, my kids loved the movie, or course, but I wont be running to Walmart the second it comes out on dvd, I can wait to buy it cheaper on Amazon.
Motherly Advice: Part of the reason I wasn't thrilled with this movie is due to the barely there costuming. Since the movie takes place in Rio during the crazy celebration of Carnival (where apparently everyone runs around wearing sparkly leotards and bikinis) there is a whole lot 'o rockin', rollin' and shakin' goin' on! If you don't mind the booty shakin' of men, women and dogs then your fine. However, I would still suggest that you wait to rent this one with a filter safely in place. There is one scene in particular that I felt was completely inappropriate for a G rated movie. When Linda (Blu's owner) comes out during carnival wearing simply a blue sequins bikini and bird wings, we see Tulio (the love interest) staring at her with slow motioned love and adoration smeared across his face as he scopes her out from toe to head. I don't know, I was pretty annoyed that my young son and daughter were getting an 'on screen lesson' about how people should 'fall in love'. We wont watch it again without a filter.
