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",...

Overdone scenes but good ending
10 July 2014 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This film tells the story of a young boy who gives up his bright salsa dancing career because he got bullied. He decides to pick it back up when he meets a nice woman who is into salsa.

Make no mistake, this is actually a romantic comedy involving dancing. As a romantic comedy, it has its moments of fun, such as the scene where Bruce was caught at home with a man by his friend. Rashida Jones is funny and she's great as a love interest. But many of the funny scenes are really overdone, such as having a salsa duel in the middle of a car park. I mean, seriously? There's not much reference to Cuba either for it to be titled "Cuban Fury". Those expecting scenes in Cuba would be disappointed. Fortunately, the finale is great and saves the film partially.
