Rio Movie Review

I just watched the animated movie 'Rio'.
A quick synopsis of the film.
(From IMDb) When Blu, a domesticated macaw from small-town Minnesota, meets the fiercely independent Jewel, he takes off on an adventure to Rio de Janeiro with this bird of his dreams.
My thoughts on the movie:
Overall I was impressed on its story structure.  It followed closely the classic three-act-structure like I talked about in a previous post.  Complete with a:

A flawed but sympathetic protagonist                                       
 summons moral courage to face and then overcome                 
 increasingly difficult, seemingly insurmountable moral tests to achieve a compelling desire.
The characters were well defined.  And even in this secular film certain Christian themes bled through(honoring the family, a husband who was devoted to his wife)
Their were plenty of funny moments and great jokes.  The story kept up and held the me interrested. The climax was very well built up to and no
Though their were a few things that weren't so great.
Their was some bizzare humor throughout which was kind of weird.  The end fell a bit flat. Because....
Spoiler ALERT.
Well at the end, Blu and Jewel kiss.  Now how that works don't ask.
That was the only thing that was bad about the movie.
Other than that I liked it.  I give it 3 stars.

And the pop song at the end wasn't bad either. :-)
