(Twentieth Century Fox, 2011)
I didn't have high hopes for this one, and was still disappointed by what I got. Weak characters, cookie-cutter plot, borderline racism in the presentation of the Brazilian characters and, worst of all, the samba was way, way watered down. (And I ought to know what I'm talking about...) I mean, seriously... Did Tracy Morgan have to be the voice of the Brazilian everyman, gettin' all funky with his natural self and acting all street and spouting all that tacky, dated slang? Yeah, sure, there's hip-hop culture in Brazil, but was it really necessary to present such a North Americanized version of it in an attempt to make this film, I dunno... more accessible to some imaginary version of an American audience that couldn't handle the Brazilians seeming more Brazilian? It's just one aspect of a general tepidness that drags this film down... Some pretty colors, but otherwise a rather leaden production, with a predictable plot that just drags itself to the finish line as we wait and wait and wait for it to be over. I suppose if the music had been better, I might not have been so annoyed, but as it was, this flick evaporated from my mind the moment we left the theatre. Alas. (C)
