Storyline

1987: A 13 year old natural born dancer with fire in his heels and snakes in his hips is working himself up to explode all over the UK Junior Salsa Championships. But then: a freakish bullying incident on the mean streets of London robs him of his confidence, and our young hero finds his life diverted down a very different path. So it is that 22 years later, an adult Bruce Garrett (Nick Frost) finds himself out-of-shape and unloved - trapped in a downward spiral of self-pity, repression and Nando's take-outs. Only Julia (Rashida Jones), his smart, funny, gorgeous new American boss, gives him reason to live. But she's untouchable. Out of his league, so he imagines, with her perfect smile and perfect life. Unknown to Bruce however, Julia has issues all of her own. Luckily for him, she also has a secret passion. Then there's Drew (Chris O'Dowd), his alpha male colleague and horny king-monkey of the office. With Drew making no secret of his desire to get (his words) "all up inside Julia",...

These Guys Are Going Places

I love Jack Frost. Superbad was great. Cuban Fury wasn't bad. I just don't get why this movie is so highly thought of. It has a few chuckles here and there, but all in all I didn't find it that funny. It struggles my head why it had to last for almost 2 hours.

Yes.. while it contains about 3 minutes of laughing.

First half of the movie was a bitter of disappointment. The other half I had moments I could laugh my butt off but still not a comedy to watch with your friends so that everyone needs a napkin to clean their eyes.

Anyhow.. I think some like it, some don't.

I wasn't too excited but I did enjoy my company who made me this movie experience as a present :)

The funniest moments was Frost's craftiness in dealing with certain Rom-com type situations. Jack Frost's freaking out and then endulging in various Jerry Lewis routines was funny too, although it didn't make much sense. I have seen both the TV and DVD version of this film and neither were able to impress on me the reason this movie is considered to be a "classic". This actor has had very many films not much funnier than this (together and not his own) though.
