About the Movie

Michael Caine plays a man on holiday in Rio with his teenage daughter Nikki, his best friend Victor (Joseph Bologna) and Victor’s sexy and flirtatious daughter (Michelle Johnson). When Caine falls for the daughter, Jennifer, the pair embark on a secret, if slightly one-sided relationship. Johnson's father is furious when he finds out about an 'older man' in his daughter's life, and asks Caine to help him track down her lover. Loosely based on the French farce Un moment d'égarement.

Customer Reviews

One of my favorites.

I was bummed to read some of the "so serious" reviews on this movie. It really has been one of my favorite movies for years. It delivers exactly what it's suppose to. A comedy about life, being young, getting older, family bonding, divorce and falling in love for the first time and falling back in love after many years. I disagree with all the negative reviews and say... "It's a must see". If only to watch Michael Caine and the sweet naive, but true to her heart girl that plays Jennifer. What great casting.

Blame It On Rio

Blame It On Rio is one of the funnest Movies that I have or will ever see. The Cast is great and the Story Line is light but funny and entertaining. Enjoy !!

Silly stupid fun. And RIO!!

One of my favorite guilty pleasures. You don't emerge enlightened in any way, but it's amusing, well acted (given the limitations of the story) and shot in vintage Rio. You won't regret the investment of time or money...
