I first saw this on the TV and liked it enough to buy it. Nick Frost plays Bruce, who was a championship contender for salsa as a child, but gave it up after being bullied. He ends up working with a new boss Julia who just happens to enjoy salsa dancing, so he takes it up again in order to impress her. Bruce is very much an underdog and it doesn't help that he has a colleague who is after Julia's attentions as well.

This film is good and funny in places. I wouldn't say it was hilarious, but I dance myself (latin style, but not quite salsa) so I would say that is probably why this film appealed to me. I could also relate on some level to Bruce with trying to relearn how to do salsa and he also reminded me of many guys that I know through dance who will never be the best but always willing to try and has good intentions. I liked the storyline, although it's not especially original.

I do have something of a collection of dance related films. It will never be on a par with 'Dirty Dancing' or 'Shall We Dance' in terms of capturing the beauty of dance, but I accept that this is not really that sort of film and that this is intended as more of a comedy. It does have a feel-good factor and I wanted to get up and join in with them, so it is a film I can see myself getting out every now and again.

Nick Frost plays an underdog who was a good Salsa Dancer as a child but was put off by a group of thugs who made him lose interest in it. Fast forward twenty five years and he discovers that his new sexy boss is into Salsa dancing so he decides to resurrect his interest as a way to get closer to her. It's a feel good film that shows that "Real men are good dancers". The only shame is that Nick Frost can't dance.

What it's about: Nick Frost plays a guy who wants to impress the pretty new boss lady in the office with his own dancing skills when he discovers she likes Salsa dancing. The problem? He hasn't danced in over 20 years and has kind of lost his touch. That and the fact that the better-looking office sleeze also has is eye on the same girl.

What I thought about it: This dance-orientated British romcom is a nice movie to watch if you're craving listening to some Salsa music and are up for a bit of light-hearted fun. It's really well-paced, has a fantastic upbeat sound-track, is really well put togethed editing-wise, and has you rooting for the likeable main character all the way through. A little silly and crass in places, and I would have liked to have seen the main character to be a little more convincing as someone who was a serious dancer in his youth, but that didn't detract from my enjoyment of the movie too much. I also appreciated the little cameo from Nick Frost's partner in crime (or at least partner in many films) Simon Pegg!

I like Nick Frost, and I sort of liked this film, it had its funny moments, but at the same time it had its cringe worthy and predictable scenes. The film has a brilliant British cast, one of my personal best actors is Ian mcshane(love joy) but i just wished he was in it more, its not the best film, but still worth a watch.

I was hoping to see a feel-good film, instead it was predictable and cringe-worthy (especially the character played by Chris O'Dowd who wasn't funny in the least). I stuck with it in case it got better (no!). I'm glad I got it free on my Amazon Prime account so I didn't waste money on cinema tickets or a dvd.

Entertaining and funny but a little bit silly in places.

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.

Nice film for young(ish) and old alike. Watched this on a rainy Sunday and we all had a good giggle. Nice to see Olivia Coleman when she doesn't have a murder to solve. She plays the main character's sister. She's not in it tjhat much though. Nick Frost's films are always heart warming. We watched it because we like latin american music and we all do zumba and salsa. Whichever dancers do the real (stunt) dancing are awesome. Like most dance films there is a wee bit of dancing here and there followed by a frenzy of dance at the end with a nice story line to keep you watching.
