A Good Time With A Great View!
And I'm not just referring to the nudity [beaches and lead character]... There is the to-die-for tropical scenery, the way you imagine Rio to look. I would give my eye teeth to stay at a villa as portrayed in the film! But seriously, like Neil Simon's "Murder By Death," this is, in my opinion, an enjoyable movie that I can watch repeatedly when nothing else in my video library seems to grab me. It may not be great, but it's that good. I saw this movie when it originally came out and liked it then. I recently spotted and rented it, and ended up buying the DVD. The humor is well done and often subtle, so pay attention. Michael Cain is great in this role, better than many other roles I have seen him in. The rest of the cast feels just right. There is fleeting nudity that permeates the film, though not over the top or vulgar by any means. I also like the early-eighties look and feel. With every element in place, it all just comes together. Blame It On Rio takes you to another time, in another place, somewhere you might want to visit if one could. This is an escapist movie, so don't take it too seriously. Just sit back, relax, and anjoy!
Blame it On Rio
This is a classic mid '80's skin flick. In much the same genre of film making as Alphie, with the main character commentary, Michael Caine is a mid life challenged man with a wife and daughter. The wife decides to take a separate vacation, which leaves Michael Caine and his daughter (played by Demi Moore) to join Michael's best friend in a joint family vacation in of all places - RIO. Of course Michael's friend is going through his own mid life crisis and has a daughter Demi's age... let's just say it all gets very interesting from there. Rio, known for it's nude beaches, layed back lifestyle and Carnival is the breathtakingly gorgeous backdrop for this playfully sinful parody. The views of Rio are great.
Blame it on Rio (DVD, 2001)
This is one of those funny, sexy, situational comedy types of movies that Hollywood used to make back when people still knew how to laugh. Times were different; we only had the Soviets to worry about. Gasoline was a buck a gallon, movies were $3, and a family of four could eat at McDonalds for less than $20. I bought this movie for $2 out of a close out box. It is very funny! Michael Caine (Matthew) and his wife and daughter (Valerie Harper, Demi Moore) are going on a long planned trip to Rio with their best friend Victor (Joseph Bologna) and Victor's daughter Jennifer (Michelle Johnson). Both daughters are sixteen, boy crazy, and adventurous. Victor is somewhat preoccupied going through a nasty divorce. At the last minute, Matthew's wife (Harper) drops a bombshell on him, that she is not going to Rio, but Bahia, to think about her possible future. . . a divorce maybe! Matthew is totally caught by surprise, and the two men wind up going on vacation with their two daughters. Everything goes wrong. Victor is on the make and looking for a good time, but Matthew is so bewildered with his marital situation, that he is totally caught off guard when Jennifer seduces him on a beach at night. (Sixteen or not, she is beautiful! WOW !!) Perplexed by his actions, and unable to refuse her advances, Matthew finds himself totally infatuated and in love with Jennifer. His daughter Demi Moore doesn't know what to do, and when Victor finds out that his daughter is having an affair with an unknown, older man, he enlists Matthew to find out who it is! The hilarious twists and turns of this little story, along with the beauty of Rio, makes for a funny and enjoyable time, with a genuine twist at the ending. Poor Matthew; there's just no way for a 45-year old guy to come out of this without a broken heart. But everyone survives, and some real lessons of life are learned. Good movie!
a fun and entertaining movie
I thought this was a very light hearted and funny movie. It delves into mid life crisis, on both parents, and has some surprising twist. I'd recommend. Tony

Forgive me, but I liked it. It's cute. Am I a pig, now?
Forgive me, but I liked it. It's cute. Am I a pig, now? OK, I saw it when I was in high school, but I remember loving it. Caine rarely-if-ever doesn't entertain, and he is GREAT in this role. Moore and Johnson are cute and innocent. Neither character mean any harm, and the movie stays innocent - I still recommend it. There are certainly movies that handle the topic (of rebelling teens with crushes on someone their senior) in much less tasteful manners. I'm a father of young girls, perhaps I won't feel the same way about this movie as they become teens. "To the innocent, all things are innocent" I recommend it; it's adorable! thepokedad
