Review: 'Rio 2'

(Two stars)

Parents dragged to the movies by wee ones know the sensation well: going off to some mental "happy place" (or not-so-happy place of "stuff I gotta do" lists) while a CGI-animated kid flick plays out unabated on the big screen. It's even money that most post-pubescents will have that mind-drift sensation sometime deep into the samba-saturated sequel "Rio 2."

some of these sequels are not quite as good as the original film. at least there is some movie to view in the theatres. it depends on what your likings are. maybe this works for some and not much for others
