Street musician Juan (Leonardo da Costa) and his girlfriend Juanita
(Michele Hermet) go on a vacation to the Rio to have some wild
carneval-fun - and their best friend Hans (Jérôme Foulon) decides to
join them, especially after having been seduced by Juanita. But Hans has
to embezzle quite a bit of his father's money to be able to afford the
In Rio, Juan desperately tries to get laid, but the only woman
interested in him later turns out to be a prostitute. Juanita on the other
hand is almost gangraped, but when she almost dies making a daring escape
and is saved by her would-be rapist, she feels obliged to shag them all.
Later she falls for an older gentleman (Olivier Mathot), uncle of one of
the rapists. And Hans? For some reason he stumbles upon girl after girl
willing to shag, and does them all.
Eventually, the three friends have a
fallout due to Hans's arrogance, and then his father finds him with all
the women he's currently checking. Happy to find out his son is not gay he
promises him to help mend things, and ultimately, Hans and Juan crash
Juanita's engagement party to her gentleman friend, and in the end the
three friends are reunited again.

ill-fitting "Carneval in Rio"-stock footage, and carried by
humour that's neither particularly funny nor in any way daring or
A rather boring film, actually.
