I just re-watched this after not seeing it for 20+ years.. this movie has not aged well. However, there is no page for it here.

Blame It On Rio was based on a French film. Those Europeans have somewhat different attitudes to the subject matter, but I'm with both of you on this one: "Ick!"

Anyway, I can't imagine that it has aged well. You have a fine old-school director in Donan, it's co-written by Gelbart from the MASH TV series, it has some good stars with Caine, Bologna, and Harper, not to mention a young Demi Moore, but the bottom line still remains: It's a movie designed to titillate with a 17-year-old. And while Michelle Johnson is quite attractive, she can't act a lick. I remember seeing it in a theatre and wanting to take a shower afterward.

Front of my UK Blu Ray

I quite enjoy Blame It On Rio but yeah plot wise especialy looking at it now it's more than a bit cringy,overall I'd say not a hilarious comedy but still there's some good laughs here and what with the stunning location(Rio) and great cast it's a bright and breezy 90 odd minutes!

Infact I like it more than I'm letting on and do give it a big thumbs up!

Back of my UK Blu Ray

After seeing your DVD cover Young warrior, I just remembered I had seen the video disc version in an antiques mall near my home, last year. I think the guy wanted too much for it, or I would have bought it and sold it on eBay.

Worth picking up Pittsburghgirl especialy on the cheap,you should give it a watch you might even enjoy it despite being slightly repulsed by the plot!

Here's how it was advertised at the flicks back in 84 and I'd say there was no real mistaking as to what sort of film you was letting yourself in for!

Yeah it's definitely an annoyance for many region coding,it's a fairly cheap disc to pick up now as well.

I'm pretty lucky as both my blu ray players are multi region but I can remember a time when I didn't have a region free player and all these titles coming out that I wanted which were region A locked that I couldn't get my hands on which was driving me mad!
