I was not expecting to enjoy "Cuban Fury", but I did. It's an engaging crowd-pleaser - sweet, quite amusing and full of [somewhat] rude jokes. I cannot stand cheesy Hollywood flicks, but here we have a solid British attempt at a funny film! It has plenty of warmth, energy and many genuine laughs, not to mention some sensational dance sequences. Oh, and the Middle East lothario Bejan simply steals the show! There is no chemistry between the leads, but you don't really need any romance, the film simply carries its heart (it's corazon!) on its sleeve - and that's enough. Yes, there are a few clichés, and we all know what will happen in the end, but it didn't stop me from loving "Cuban Fury"!

This film is a great feel good romantic comedy. This is what actor Nick Frost does best, of course. Nick plays Bruce, an average guy. His new boss is an attractive woman whom he wants to impress. When he finds out her passion for Salsa dancing, he decides to dust off his dancing shoes and get back into the Salsa world that he turned his back on 25 years before. The result is a glorious feel good movie.

I normally like Nick Frost films, but this one was special because it contained some glimpse into the Salsa world. I recognised quite a few of the incidental characters in the dance scenes, who are all big names in the Salsa dance world. As a Salsa dance enthusiast this made it even more interesting.

If you have liked any previous Nick Frost film, then most likely you will like this one, whether or not you are into Salsa dancing.

Nick Frost plays a the nice guy who chases a girl he thinks is out of his league. It's a familiar story but there are some nice comedy moments, especially in his encounters with his office love rival, Chris O'Dowd and from his camp dance class buddy, salsa addict, Bejan. Not a comedy classic but nicely put together with a few laugh out loud moments.

Okay, it may be a bit of a cliche and we all know what will happen but it didn't stop me from loving this movie. It had heart -il corazon! I loved the gradual confidence building and certainly the music, the dancing etc. It was funny, sweet, hot and really worth watching. Had my feet tapping and wanting to get up there to dance at every move.

Cuban Fury didn't quite do it for me, it was amusing enough but didn't throw out the belly laughs I was expecting.

Nick Frost plays Bruce, an office worker who was something of a salsa king in his youth. When Rashida Jones arrives as a new co-worker he sets out re-learning some of the old moves to impress her. What follows is largely predictable fare - along with some comedy sidekicks and a stern dance teacher (Ian Mcshane in a small but fun role) Bruce hits the dance floor. Training montages, life lessons and dance contests are all present and correct as well as an evil co-worker to throw a few spinners in the works (Chris O'Dowd stealing scenes as a complete douche bag).

The cast are good in their roles, Olivia Colman pops in as well in a sadly underwritten role and things tick on amiably to the conclusion. I'm not sure it'll linger too long in the memory for me though which is a shame, I thought there was a bit more potential here for something more special.

This is one of the BEST, happy, feel-good movies I have seen in a while. Not a single boring second throughout the entire thing.The cast couldn't have been chosen better as they were all extremely engaging and hilarious the whole time. Brilliant, just brilliant.
I saw the movie with my husband and we were left with this incredibly happy feeling. Both so bubbly and laughing the entire way home. Can't wait for it to be released on DVD. Thank you for this movie: ray of sunshine, joy and lots of giggles :)
