Comedy starring Hugh Laurie. Raymond (Laurie) hopes to find the girl of his dreams in Rio de Janeiro, the fabulous dancer, Orlinda (Vanessa Nunes), who graces the cover of Samba Monthly. Upon arrival in Rio, Raymond hooks up with an eccentric taxi driver name Paulo (Santiago Segura) who is only too happy to help him spend his fortune. Together they hunt down the exotic Orlinda (Vanessa Nunes). After a night of passion, Raymond awakens to find both Orlinda and his money have vanished. His troubles have only just begun as everyone on the streets of Rio wants Raymond's money.

Well I watched this film purely because Hugh Laurie was in it and he saves it from being completely terrible Just! Its one of those films that you know could of been ALOT better but worth a look if you like Hugh.

This may not be an oscar-winner but it is funny, entertaining and the Brazilian music is good. The scenery in Rio is spectacular. The pace is good and the characters are as credible as they need to be in a farce.

The previous reviewer gave away the whole plot. Hugh Laurie seems to be playing himself or what we have come used to.

He goes to Rio with the stolen money and meets dances with and sleeps with Vanessa Nunes which was worth the effort in itself.

The plot is completely improbable but you don't mind as it is a frothy comedy and it all turns out well in the end as out hero gets to go to Rio meet the girl of his dreams sleeps with her keeps the money and lives happily ever after.

Great views of Rio (not that I have been there)

Good clean fun and a modicum of laughs.

Worth a viewing any day of the week. I have seen a lot worse more high concept films. Reminiscent of Bridget Jones Diary and Four weddings etc.

The only unbelievable part of the film was that a London taxi driver would get you anywhere in a hurry for just £200

A good entertaining film.

I love this film. I caught it on the tv one night years ago but didn't see the ending as I had to go to bed! Since then I've been looking for it everywhere and had no look in any high street shops so I was over the moon when I found it on here. The dvd is great quality and it arrived very quickly after ordering. I would recommend this seller and would buy from seller again

Much as I like Hugh Laurie, this was so bad that I fast forwarded after the first half. Cliched and cringe worthy from the dancing to the script. Can't think of a redeeming feature except possibly Lia Williams and even she was made to over act in the sex on a machine scene a la Harry met Sally vocalizing. Spare me any more like this.
