Blame It On Rio

Film, Comedy

Time Out says

Two middle-aged businessmen (Caine and Bologna) take a holiday in Rio without their wives but with their teenage daughters. When Bologna's daughter, a pyrogenic half-pint with the subtle approach of a heat-seeking missile, homes in on Caine, the result is a very predictable sort of French farcing about. Aside from a good exchange rate of one-liners, the chief feeling left by the movie (a remake of Claude Berri's Un Moment d'Egarement) is of a thin, cynical calculation. Sole reason to catch it would be to monitor one more step of Caine's increasing excellence as middle age overtakes him. CPea.
