Bungle in the jungle

Like the first movie, “Rio 2” looks great, with vibrant colors and lovely animation that pop off the screen. Among the many layers of plots, some are winners. One of the most successful is the talent competition. “Rio 2” is curiously devoid of decent comedy, but the song-and-dance routines, which are beautifully choreographed, lead to the movie’s biggest laughs, especially when the contestants keep getting eaten by predators. All in all, though, the movie feels at once too busy and too derivative. The DVD (Fox, $30) includes three featurettes, while the Blu-ray ($40-$50) adds a deleted scene, a “Music and Dance Sing-Along Machine” with 10 songs from the film, and downloadable bonus songs.
