QUICK TAKE:
Animated Action/Comedy: Blu, Jewel, and their kids learn they are not the only birds of their kind when they travel deep into the Amazon and come into conflict with evil developers, a vengeful cockatoo, and Jewel's long-lost father.
PLOT:
Since the first "Rio," rare birds Blu (voice of JESSE EISENBERG) and Jewel (voice of ANNE HATHAWAY) have had gotten married and had three kids. One day while watching TV at their Brazilian nature preserve, they spot Blu's old owner, Linda (voice of LESLIE MANN), and her boyfriend Tulio (voice of RODRIGO SANTORO) touting the possible discovery of a whole flock of wild blue macaws deep in the Amazon.

Blu and his family decide to go check it out for themselves, unaware that part of the rainforest is threatened by a cabal of evil land developers under the command of the Big Boss (voice of MIGUEL FERRER). Fortunately, bird characters Rafael (voice of GEORGE LOPEZ), Nico (voice of JAMIE FOXX), and Pedro (voice of WILL.i.AM) from the first film tag along to make sure they survive in the wilds and to audition new talent for their Carnival concert.

Once there, Jewel is reunited with her loved ones feared dead a long time ago, including: her father, Eduardo (voice of ANDY GARCIA); her Aunt Mimi (voice of RITA MORENO); and her old childhood crush, the seemingly perfect Roberto (voice of BRUNO MARS). Blu tries to fit in, but the flock or tribe as they call themselves laugh at his pitiful survival skills and scoff at him when they learn he used to be a human's pet. And unbeknownst to Blu, he is being hunted by Nigel (voice of JEMAINE CLEMENT), the evil, Shakespearean-quoting cockatoo from the first film who blames him for his clipped wings and permanently grounded life.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Yes. The animated film is a sequel to a very popular film of a few years ago, with music and voice performances that cut a wide swath of demographics.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: G
For not containing material to warrant a higher rating.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
