Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Rich in Love (Ricos de Amor) is a Brazilian romantic comedy (with English subtitles) in which a good-for-nothing son of a wealthy mogul switches identities with a poor friend to find out how people really feel about him. The son has a reputation for sleeping with lots of women, but there's no nudity. A man wakes up and finds a woman in his bed. The implication is they had sex the night before, but he doesn't know the woman's name. A female police officer stops a wealthy young man for speeding, but lets him go after aggressively patting him down and caressing his butt suggestively, implying they'd had sex. Language includes "f--k," "s--t," "ass," and "hell." A supervisor sexually harasses his subordinate at work. Friends drop knockout drops in his coffee, hoping he'll stop bothering the woman.

Is It Any Good?
This Brazilian romcom is not special or memorable. There's absolutely nothing original about Rich in Love, not the concept of telling lies to get at the truth, not the pretending to be poor in order to find one's place in the world, nor the transformation of a selfish, spoiled rich kid finding his purpose when he finally notices all the suffering, deprivation, and need around him. And given how little we see of any decency or empathy in Teto, it feels like a sure bet that the dedicated, smart, and caring women who supposedly inspire him to do better probably wouldn't have that much influence on him if they weren't beautiful. The movie is a cliché from start to finish, and there's scarcely a character worth caring about.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
