IMO, Rio was one of the best animated kids movies I have seen with my son all year!  It was so refreshing to finally watch a movie that did not have suggestive adult content, hidden sexual notations or ‘evil’ subliminal messages.  Overall, my family gives Rio an A+ for humor, story line & overall content.
