* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Nigel's VillainSong. It comes right out of nowhere, adds absolutely nothing to the story, and is never brought up again. It at ''least'' gives some {{backstory}} for him and explains why he's evil, but this aspect is never brought up again either, probably to keep the auidience from having any sympathy for the guy when he's clearly meant to be pure evil.

%%* UnfortunateImplications: A plot in the sequel is apparently Blue competing over Jewel's affection with a new guy, even though they already ended up together, and with ''children.'' It remains to be seen if it's the actual dilemma of the movie however.
%%** Given the way [[OverprotectiveDad her father]] is depicted, it's possible that he's trying to set her up with a "better man".
%%** WordofGod states that it's mostly paranoia on Blu's part.

* ClicheStorm: The film is a compilation of every trope common to kids movies in the 2000s, especially [[Creator/DreamWorksAnimation Dreamworks]] movies. A LastOfHisKind Blue Bird played by Creator/JesseEisenberg whose acting and voice are a Creator/MichaelCera stand-in. This Blue Bird [[AcrophobicBird doesn't know]] [[HowDoIShotWeb how to fly]] and is [[{{Adorkable}} awkward and nerdy]] and tries to woo a HotBlooded ActionGirl also LastOfHerKind [[RecycledInSpace bird]] played by Creator/AnneHathaway. A [[IWasQuiteALooker vain]], [[SmugSnake egocentric]], and FauxAffablyEvil bird played by an actor who is not but sounds suspiciously like TimCurry. A HappilyMarried HenpeckedHusband [[TheMentor Mentor]] Toucan played by GeorgeLopez. An OddCouple romance followed by a DieOrFly learning how to fly JustInTime (with the help of the PowerOfLove) scene are both bound to happen.

* HilariousInHindsight: KristinChenoweth is voicing Gabi the Poisonous Tree frog... Who has a bad case of MadLove, can't touch the object of her affection without killing them, and specifically mentions pie in her song describing her current situation. [[PushingDaisies Sounds like Olive finally gets a chance to understand Chuck's situation with Ned "The Pie Maker".]]
** [[JesseEisenberg Blu]] [[Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice uses his smarts to get around his hangup of being unable to fly.]]

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Nigel.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Nigel.Nigel, whose [[LargeHam over-the-top]] CardCarryingVillain routine and catchy VillainSong make him very entertaining to watch. They bring him back in the sequel possibly because of his darkhorse status.

** Though this wound up as something of a detraction when it became the focus of one of the trailers, as many movie-goers dismissed it as the kind of "crude humor" type film Dreamworks was known to release in the mid-2000's (although Rio is done by Blue Sky Studios) and not the more adventurous film filled with AwesomeMusic that it turned out to be.



** {{Troperiffic}}
** It sometimes gets DamnedByFaintPraise as "The Most Predictable Animated Film Ever Made."
* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: Linda, driving like a maniac behind the wheel of [[spoiler:a massive parade float]], crashes through a chain link fence onto an airport runway and [[IncrediblyLamePun plays chicken]] with the smuggler's twin-engine plane in a desperate attempt to stop them taking off with Blu. It almost works too.

* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: DJ Dero's Batucada in the trailer is only the beginning (and is heavily sampled in the soundtrack). The first two minutes of the movie are set to a Brazilian samba.
** EarWorm
** Nearly EVERY one of the songs in the movie is this.
** Jewel's solo in "Hot Wings I Wanna Party" is one of the most beautiful parts of the entire movie.
*** And a great contrast. Blu's a natural talent at the rapid motions of street-style samba; Jewel's flowing motions evoke a much more formal, classic style of samba.

* [[AllAnimationIsDisney All CGI Is Pixar (All Other CGI Is Dreamworks)]]: Doesn't matter if "from the makers of ''WesternAnimation/IceAge''" is all around the publicity.

** John Powell's score is a bit overshadowed by the songs and isn't exactly ''[[WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon How to Train Your Dragon]]'' but it gets some moments to shine, particularly "Flying" towards the end.

** John Powell's score is a bit overshadowed by the songs and isn't exactly ''[[WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon How to Train Your Dragon]]'' but it gets some moments to shine, particularly "Flying" towards the end. Of corse, having famed Latin composer Sergio Mendez supervising helped immensely.
