Us Rating: **1/2

Vibrant and as zippy as a kindergartner on a sugar rush, this 3-D animated flick -- from the Ice Age series' codirector -- will certainly please kids, even if adults may find it a little snoozy. A domesticated pet macaw named Blu (voice of Jesse Eisenberg, doing his awkward-but-adorable shtick) jets from his comfy Minnesota home to exotic Rio de Janeiro and meets the last female of his species, Jewel (Anne Hathaway). Their goal: Save their line of birds from extinction. While the story lacks suspense -- and Ice Age's antic zingers -- the film packs in vocal talent. Plus, a few infectious, Latin-flavored musical numbers spice things up.
