    Though billed as a romantic comedy, this effort is more of a farce as the outcomes of the character actions in real life would be quite different than those presented here. There are however magnificent backdrops of Rio de Janeiro to follow and the acting is remarkable. In fact the performances of the two young women, Michelle Johnson (1st film ever) and Demi Moore (2nd big casting) show us they are going to be remembered for their ability to ply their trade. Some of the darker sides of Rio people's customs is glanced at. And a running threat is to return to Sao Paolo. Yup, for the scenery of the geology, the flora, the architecture and the two young ladies, this movie is worth a watch. There is a cinematic technique employed here for one of the first times: the confessional/monologue where the players add to the character development by camera cuts to Caine and Johnson expressing ideas undelivered in the scenes. It makes an interesting diversion and develops the characters well.

    I enjoyed some footage that was incorporated from "Flying Down to Rio" and would have loved some more of it and other Rio and Sao Paulo data in a feature addition but there are no features to add to in the DVD I watched.
