It seems like there are rarely movies in the theater that warrant a special treat out with all of our kiddos. This month we have been fortunate to see not just one, but two! We screened Soul Surfer earlier this month and just this last weekend we were able to attend a screening for the movie Rio , coming to theaters on April 15th.
While it’s true that we did see both movies for “free”, we would most definitely pay to see them again. In fact, Julia missed seeing Rio with us, so I’ll be taking her to see it this weekend, perhaps with a friend or two.
What’s so special about Rio ? Well, it’s a movie that is full of adventure, tender moments, scenes that had us all in stitches, and toe-tapping music. Ray and I thoroughly enjoyed the film, and even Noah – our fidgety three-year-old, was entertained through the whole thing. Rio is definitely great fun for the whole family!
From the makers of the hit ICE AGE series comes RIO, a comedy adventure about taking a walk on the wild side. Blu is a domesticated Macaw who never learned to fly, living a comfortable life with his owner and best friend Linda in the small town of Moose Lake, Minnesota. Blu and Linda think he’s the last of his kind, but when they learn about another Macaw who lives in Rio de Janeiro, they head to the faraway and exotic land to find Jewel, Blu’s female counterpart. Not long after they arrive, Blu and Jewel are kidnapped by a group of bungling animal smugglers. With the help of street smart Jewel, and a group of wise-cracking and smooth-talking city birds, Blu escapes. Now, with his new friends by his side, Blu will have to find the courage to learn to fly, thwart the kidnappers who are hot on their trail, and return to Linda, the best friend a bird ever had.
