A fun family film, or just a fun film

Evelyn Caicedo

If you are in the mood for some sing-a-long tunes, over-the-top comedy, and an action-filled love story, then this film is a must.

The movie is about Blu, an endangered Macaw, who is flown back to his native Brazil from Minnesota to get matched up with a bird, Jewel, whose only goal is to escape and to live free in the jungles again.

The movie stays true to the Brazilian culture with the time frame being Carnivale, an annual festival celebrated in Brazil, and Samba music during every action sequence.

All audience types will remember the tunes, and the moments that kept them laughing and teary-eyed.
