US American prudes screw it up for all of us, again


OK, so I know the movie trailers for the upcoming animated feature "Rio" have been posted and reposted all over the place, but I just read here that the Brazilian director Carlos Saldanha told a Rio de Janeiro newspaper recently the film’s animated beachscapes had to undergo at least one change for American consumption: bigger bikini bottoms.

Oh please. And I suppose he had to fight off adding Bibles to people's beach bags as well. US American culture police make me sick to my stomach.

Viva Brasil!

I am not surprised at all. Every time we've watched the trailer, we have laughed and said, "I've never seen a bikini that large on any beach in Brazil....." I did not realize the film had/has a Brazilian director, though, I just thought an American director got it wrong.

Sad that they were made to change it (and falsify it, LOL!).

I thought the bikini bottom was a bit big. I'm still excited about the movie though. The beach scene is SO Rio!

Makes sense. Too many "popozudas" in tangas would make the American audience have a cardio.

Man, that does suck! I normally don't get into watching cartoon-ish movies like these, with the exception of Toy Story and Shrek, but I'm looking forward to this one. Just wish they didn't have to mess with what is a reality here. I, too, hate the PC Police! GROW UP, AMERICA!
