Cuban Fury

Director: James Griffiths

Starring: Nick Frost, Chris O’Dowd, Rashida Jones, Kayvan Novak, Ian McShane, Olivia Colman, Wendi McLendon-Covey

Formulaic comedy starring Nick Frost as Bruce Garrett (former child salsa dancer) a lonely overweight engineer. Our hero spends most of his day being belittled by a womanising colleague Drew (Chris O’Dowd) but when a new and beautiful boss called Julia (Rashida Jones) arrives, Bruce is determined to win her heart. She loves salsa and Bruce needs to get back his mojo with the help of Began (Kay van Novak), a flamboyantly gay man in Bruce’s dance class. Despite support from Ian McShane as Bruce’s grizzled former dance instructor Ron this is a tired movie with a few good one liners and reasonable dance sequences. If you need see it wait for the DVD.
