Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you Carmen Miranda in Rio!
There is nothing like a classic film from the golden age of cinema. There is nothing like a film with massive musical numbers and there is nothing like a film with Carmen Miranda throwing things at some poor actor.
This is a very entertaining film that provides the benefits of two people looking like each other and one pretending to be the other and the other finding out and pretending to be the guy who is pretending to be him and then confusing the ladies who end up confused.
The film does revolve around Rio however much of it was actually filmed IN Rio is a different matter. But we all know that the star of this show is Carmen Miranda who has a habit of hogging the limelight with her very exuberant acting style.
It is a feel good, amusing film from an era of filming that we forget about too often.
I would recommend it only if you like films with musicals, Carmen Miranda, tooty fruity hats or cheesy comedy
That Night in Rio
Classic musical in which an entertainer (Don Ameche) in Rio impersonates a wealthy arisocrat (also Ameche). When the aristocrat's wife (Alice Faye) asks him to carry the impersonation further, complications ensue.

nice entertainment - to be seenReviewed in the United Kingdom on 25 March 2012
The real star and to be admired is Ameche. I didn't know the actor before and have to say, he's great here giving a fine performance. Faye and Miranda are "second chorus" but nice as usual, nothing more. No famous songs or special dance performances but a well interpretated (also by minor characters), amusing story is enough for having a nice evening with this well done film.
Hurrah for older filmsReviewed in the United Kingdom on 16 March 2018
One of my favorite DVDs. This film is thoroughly enjoyable, a real treat that leaves the viewer entertained and relaxed. Carmen Miranda was once upon a time the highest paid female actress in Hollywood...and with good reason...in an extravagant way she is utterly charming.
