I’m sure we all remember the colorful Rio (or at least those of us with kids) that was a big box office hit three years ago. That film was highly praised for its vibrantly plumaged birds and Brazilian locales. Well guess, what—here’s the sequel. The macaws are still in Brazil, but this time they take a trip to the Amazon jungle and discover a colony of endangered blue macaws. Needless to say, our old friends help their new friends fight the rapacious loggers who are destroying their habitat. Rio‘s voice cast has returned in force, including Anne Hathaway, Jesse Eisenberg, Jamie Foxx,, and so on, augmented by Andy Garcia and Rita Moreno. Carlos Saldanha, of Ice Age fame, who directed Rio, directed this one as well.—Peter Biskind

“…the characterisation is feisty and memorable, the song-and-dance sequences intricate and colourful, and it’ll charm the socks off little people.”—Tom Huddleston, Time Out London

“There’s plenty here to attract both kids and adults alike in Saldanha’s colorful imagining of the Amazonian rainforest’s avian communities.”—Justin Lowe, Hollywood Reporter

“There is enough colour, wit and inventiveness here to make this acceptable enough Easter holiday fare for children and adults alike.”—Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent (UK)

We’ve had to demonstrate exquisite patience as we stood on line for this picture while it played all the multi, mega, and poly plexes, because, alas, we’re only a humble single screen theater, but now its here, and well worth the wait. Wes Anderson, a rarity in American cinema, a real auteur with his own style and sensibility, but a bit of an acquired taste. He is a miniaturist, and his films are like fine watches, full of tiny springs and wheels, miracles of construction that, when they work, are things of beauty, but occasionally they just grind to a halt, choked by whimsy and fussiness, too arch for their own good. This one, I’m happy to report is one of his best. Without sacrificing the graceful touches and quirky artistry for which he is famous, by setting the story in a fictional mitteleuropean country on the eve of World War II, he touches on some rather nasty history, that anchors the hi-jinks in doomy events that hover at the edges of the frame. There are a lot of flights of fancy to look at here—an art theft, a hit man, louche escapades of all sorts––and a great actors to watch executing them—Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swinton, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Tom Wilkerson, Saoirse Ronan, F. Murray Abraham, Bob Balaban, Edward Norton, Jeff Goldblum, Jude Law, Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, and so on, as well as much to feast the eyes on, a glimpse of the lost art of set design from an era before we were bludgeoned to death with computer generated special effects.—Peter Biskind

“The opéra-bouffe plot serves as a strand of bright golden wire on which Anderson hangs innumerable encounters, scampering chases, and an archly decorative style of commentary.”—David Denby, New Yorker

“The Grand Budapest Hotel, Mr. Anderson’s eighth feature, will delight his fans, but even those inclined to grumble that it’s just more of the same patented whimsy might want to look again. As a sometime grumbler and longtime fan, I found myself not only charmed and touched but also moved to a new level of respect.”—A.O. Scott, New York Times

“It’s a mature, intricately layered visual delight.”—Claudia Puig, USA Today

“Mr. Anderson’s lovely confection … keeps us smiling, and sometimes laughing out loud. Yet acid lurks in the cake’s lowest layers.”—Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal

“I amaze myself by liking this latest lunatic cocktail as much as I do.”—Rex Reed, New York Observer

“I’ve had my Wes Anderson breakthrough – or maybe it’s that he’s had his. The Grand Budapest Hotel is a marvelous contraption, a wheels-within-wheels thriller that’s pure oxygenated movie play.”—Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly

“An exquisitely calibrated, deadpan-comic miniature that expands in the mind and becomes richer and more tragic.”—David Edelstein, New York Magazine
