Cuban Fury

Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead, The World's End) stars as Bruce, a chubby Londoner who was once hailed as a teen salsa dancing prodigy until a bullying incident cut his career short. 22 years later, the arrival of a new boss (Parks & Recreation's Rashida Jones) encourages Bruce back on to the dancefloor.

Out of shape and down on his luck, Bruce (Frost) bears little resemblance to his once-promising younger salsa-loving self, but he's inspired to rediscover his long lost talent to impress beautiful new American boss Julia (Jones). Meanwhile, office alpha male Drew (Chris O'Dowd, Bridesmaids) is also vying for Julia's attention and tries every dirty trick in the book to thwart Bruce's efforts. Supporting cast includes Ian McShane, Rory Kinnear, Kayvan Novak, Olivia Colman, Bridesmaids' Wendi McLendon-Covey and SNL's Rachel Dratch and Liz Cackowski.

Busts a few minor moves, but not as light on its feet as it wants to be.

Frost’s solo movie lacks the inventive madness of his Cornetto team-ups, but it’s still a heartfelt blast of fun.

A fun, easy comedy with a bit of heart but not in the league of Frost's past partnering with Pegg.

Cuban Fury tells the story of an overweight man trying to reclaim the hotstepping moves of youth. It's nice, and occasionally funny, but will disappoint many who expected more from half a Cornetto.

Some good one liners (Type 2 diabetes) make this feel good comedy a winner and gets you leaving the theatre with a grin on your face.

This film is funnier than it should be. Much funnier. Sooooooo much funnier. I can't express how bad this film should be, but then isn't. I mean, this should be the equivalent of a Adam Sandler/Kevin James film. Slowly sucking the life out of the audience while they sit there cutting themselves to feel anything, wondering how it ever got made and most...
