This is definitely a fun animated film. Living a reclusive life in Moose Lake, Minnesota, a McCaw named Blu lives with his human friend Linda. Blu doesn't know how to fly and since living with Linda doesn't necessitate flying, he doesn't learn.
Blu and Linda think he's the last of his kind until they hear about another McCaw, Jewel, who lives in Rio De Janeiro. So Blu and Linda set out to visit Rio and contact Jewel.
The film is filled with vibrant color and music, just like Rio itself.
When Blu and Jewel are kidnapped by some less than expert animal smugglers, they must work together, with the help of some street smart city birds, to escape their kidnappers. Once free, the birds must thwart the kidnappers and Blu must find the courage to learn to fly.
In the end Blu must reunite with Linda, his best friend.
