Vincent Canby, reviewing Blame It on Rio, stated "...there's not a single funny or surprising moment in the movie. However, Blame It on Rio is not humorless, it spreads gloom. It's one of those unfortunate projects that somehow suggests that everyone connected with the movie hated it and all of the other people involved." The Australian newspaper The Canberra Times described Blame It on Rio as "one of the worst movies made and the most banal piece of rubbish to have Michael Caine's name on the credits - and he has quite a few bombs to his credit." Roger Ebert gave the film 1 star out of a possible 4, writing: "It's unsettling to see how casually this movie takes a serious situation. A disturbed girl is using sex to play mind games with a middle-aged man, the movie get its yuks with slapstick scenes What's shocking is how many first-rate talents are associated with this sleaze."Rotten Tomatoes gave Blame It on Rio a rating of 9% based on reviews from 22 critics.
