Blame It On Rio - Starring Michael Caine and Demi Moore.

Matthew, his wife and daughter together with Victor, who is having to deal with a messy divorce courtesy of his wife's solicitor, and Victor's daughter, decide to go on a holiday of a lifetime to Rio in Brasil........ except at the last moment Matthew's wife announces that she is actually packing to go elsewhere because she needs to "think things over" regarding her marriage to a now dumbfounded Matthew.

So now it is just the four of them who land in Rio, and it is time to party! At a wedding beach party, Victor's daughter seduces the "25 years older" Matthew and the rest of the film is Matthew trying to wriggle out of the relationship AND to not let the philandering Victor find out what is going on as he has made it clear he would break any man who laid a finger on his daughter. Matthew's daughter (Demi Moore)who spotted what was going on early on, finally decides to phone her mum to come over and sort things out.
(SPOILER ALERT) The twist in the tale is that when mum arrives it transpires she needed some time away from Matthew to think about her marriage to him and whether to leave him, because she had been having an affair.... with VICTOR !

My copy of this film is on 1x 1200' and 1x 600' spool, so I guess it was originally 3x 600'. As mentioned, it is optical sound,which is very good, and the print quality is also very good.Mine was a bit warm, but all the colours are very much present which helped very much with the enjoyment of this very entertaining film.

I had this print too and mine had gone a little brownish but had decent colors otherwise. I actually prefer this version, as i can show it to family without having to cover the little ones eyes.

However, there is one shot at the end, during the end credit, where you see caine resting his head on Michelle's backside, where in the actual story, we see that she has a bikini bottom on. [Smile]
