Blame it on Rio. Anybody else like this?

I saw it the other day and for some reason I really enjoyed it. Michael Caine was great, and the Brazilian scenery was nice. Corny yet fitting soundtrack, all these elements come together quite nicely to make a fun comedy. Although it's kind of random to think that Donen did Singin' in the Rain and then 40 something years later would do this.

Haven't seen it in years, but I agree that the rack was a memorable feature.

Have not seen it in a long time. All I remember is pre boob job 21 year old Demi Moore's itty-bitty titties.

Yes, there was all sorts of "colorful scenery."

Again, it's been years, but I do remember that the main girl with the huge rack was a terrible, terrible, porn-level actress. Was it really that hard to find a semi-competent young actress who would do nude scenes, or was she just banging the producer?

Yeah her acting really was pretty bad, the pleading and all was terrible.

One of those guilty pleasures. It's a pretty crappy movie though, but Caine and Miss Johnson's mammaries do what they can to salvage it.

Had no idea that Michelle Johnson was only 18 during filming. Also, she was once married to former baseball player Matt Williams.

It's been a while since I've seen this one but I don't remember Caine's mammaries being all that impressive.

I remember sneaking to watch it on cable way back when I was a little kid. I really loved it back then (go figure).

Haven't seen it since the 1980s. Gotta check it out again.

Love this movie. I just saw it again on cable a few months ago and forgot how much my younger self "enjoyed" it.

Yeah the reason I wanted to see it: My Grandparents had a number of VHS tapes, with this being one of them. I'd always peruse the collection, and the name just sounded interesting. I talked to my Grandfather about it today (he threw out all his VHS stuff last year unfortunately). Still have a lot to see though before covering that collection!

I saw it in the theater and laughed my butt off. Disagree on the slams against Michelle Johnson, she was perfect in the part. Her hotness and pleading is what made it somewhat believable and almost understandable on why Caine's character would give in to her.

Wasn't she actually 17?

Per IMDB At the age of 17, only two months out of high school in Phoenix, Arizona, Michelle was signed up by the director Stanley Donen for a supporting actress role with Michael Caine in the movie comedy Blame It on Rio (1984).

Signed at 17, but maybe not when filming?

I thought nudity was ok it was sex that could not be shown if underage?

This thread is all kinds of fail. NO ONE has posted the poster yet.



I used to stare at it for obvious reasons...Michael Caine in shaving cream is fucking hilarious as hell.
