In this vibrant kids' flick, pet macaw Blu (voice of Jesse Eisenberg) flies 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, a few infectious Latin-flavored musical numbers spice things up. (20th Century Fox, $30)
