This is a likeable film, helped by very winning performances, especially Nick Frost's. In his red shirt with black rhinestones, still massively under-confident, his sheer dance talent takes over. The last half-hour is very good, confirming the similarity to Strictly Ballroom. It doesn't quite have the magical pacing of the Australian film, though, or its brilliant plot, but the characters are appealing. The dynamic between the main couple is reversed, where in the Australian film she was unsure of her abilities and looks, and Paul Mercurio was the pinup she never thought would look at her. Both films use flashbacks to past trauma, but perhaps more could have been made of it in the new film, so that we could have felt a bigger connection than just a snazzy shirt .. more John Waters in Hairspray could have given it more hold. Rashida Jones provides an alluring partner, and there are a string of well-pitched backing players, all drawn with a slightly comic-book emphasis. Chris O'Dowd is memorable as the villainous workplace lothario and there is a very funny dance showdown in a car park.

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.

I bought this film because of the great cast, including Nick Frost, Olivia Colman, Ian McShane and Chris O'Dowd. I didn't know of Rashida Jones, but thought it was worth a look. Having read other reviews I was a little apprehensive because it clearly didn't do it for some of the Salsa crowd.
However, its a great little film with some terrific performances by all the main cast. It's a comedy and the fact that obviously there are dance stand ins when the cast are involved didn't detract at all for me. The story is about a shy guy who has lost his mojo and who is inspired by love for a seemingly unreachable girl to rediscover his hidden talents and to blossom again, at the same time he faces childhood demons and in so doing rescues his life. There are some great performances from Kayvan Novak and Rory Kinnear as well and a cameo from Simon Pegg (see if you can spot him doing his Hitchcock bit). Anyway, its a great feel good film, well worth a look.

Well, I bought this cos I like Nick Frost in his other films starring Simon Pegg but this is the first film I've watched with just Nick Frost in and for a Comedy..it's not all that funny but it's an alright film I suppose, just wouldn't class it as a comedy film. There's funny moments but only a few and even they aren't really funny so I couldn't decide whether to give this film a 2 Star Rating or a 3 Star Rating and then I decided to get it 3 just cos it's not a terrible film....just not really funny

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"!

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.

It is funny Nick Frost and Chris O'Dowd play their parts very well as does Ian McShane and the lovelly Rashida Jones.

It's a feel good film with some very funny parts, very distinctly British with some clever touches.

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.
