Movie Reviews

Good movie to watch late at night
Pat McCurry | Wilton, NH United States | 06/04/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

""Blame It On Rio" is one of my favorite films. The great scenery of Rio De Janeiro is one of the perks of watching this. It's kinda like watching a travelogue of the city that's a 24-hour carnival. The film is packed with memorable lines as well ("They looked at us, let's go talk to them,"says Victor. "They're practically nude," Matthew states. Victor's response? "Try to picture them with clothes on"). Michelle Johnson won a Razzie for her performance as Jennifer, which I didn't think was that bad. Demi Moore's performance, on the other hand, takes some getting used to. Michael Caine, always the top-rate performer, doesn't disappoint in this one. His performance is honest and well-meaning. There are one small fault in the film though: the soundtrack. I'm not talking about the bossa-nova or nightclub music, but the outdated 80s music. There is one song in the film that gets played over and over again. By the end of the film, the song will not leave your head LOL. That doesn't matter though. It doesn't take away the film's entertainment value. It is still a fun film to watch and make you laugh."
A Sweet Little Escape to Rio
Denise | 11/22/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Put your inhibitions and prejudices on the back burner, and savor the beauty, innocence, humor, and humanity of this movie. Michael Caine is great as always. Michelle Johnson may never win an Oscar, but she is perfect as the liberated, honest, voluptuous daughter of Caine's best friend (Joseph Bologna). She lures Caine into an affair, presumably based on love, without any hint of malice. A young, pre-implant Demi Moore is pretty, but mostly background. Valerie Harper has funny moments as Caine's wife. Family conflict abounds, and is wrapped up in a mostly satisfying ending. Spiced up with local culture and natural beauty, including numerous topless ladies on the beach."
A Great Vacation

""Blame It On Rio" is like taking a great vacation of fun, sun and no inhibitions. The setting is beautiful Rio de Janeiro and the film gives an honest impression of the city...beautiful beaches, Bossa Nova flavored music, tropical climate. Michael Caine is hilarious, Joseph Bologna a perfect comical foil to Caine, Michelle Johnson sweet and innocent(?), and Demi Moore likeable and levelheaded. I saw this movie for the first time when I was about Michelle Johnson's age and when I saw the film recently, it brought back wonderful memories of that time in the 80s. The film is a not-so-implausible plot of a middle-aged man (Caine) spending a vacation in Brazil with his daughter (Moore),his best friend (Bologna) and his best friend's daughter (Johnson). Valerie Harper plays Caine's wife, who backs out of the vacation to Rio at the last minute and packs for Bahia. "Must have been the free and easy laughter in the air...must have been the moonlight on the sea..." Caine has an affair with his best friend's daughter (Johnson)and the comedy ensues. "Blame It On Rio" is just plain old fun with great scenery, great quotes (Johnson to Caine "That's not you life line, that's your heart line" and Caine's reply "Teeny little thing isn't it"), and great comedy!"
Odd Couple with A Twist

"I never grow tired of seeing this video. The locations, breathtakingly shot in and around Rio, are enough to make anyone with or without an imagination want to book the next flight.Caine and Bologna play marvelously off each other reminicent of Walter Mathow and Jack Lemon. Good writing and a terrific supporting cast including a teenage and throaty voiced Demi Moore as Canie's daughter make this a movie not to be missed. While the subject matter may be is a comedy."
