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",...

Trivia

During the dance off, Drew does a move where he tries to grab Bruce's face and Bruce counters him. This part is a piece of choreography from the World's End where Andy, another character played by Nick Frost, counters the same move during a bathroom fight scene. See more »

Simply brings in Little Laughs,
9 April 2015 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Cuban Fury is a decent movie with a mediocre storyline and a great comedic cast that sadly couldn't make this much better. The main problem with the movie is it simply isn't funny enough, there were some parts that had me in stitches, but there wasn't merely enough to make it worth your while. The cast is terrific, Nick Frost, Rashida Jones, Chris O' Dowd and Olvia Colman are all terrific actors, but they were all given boring roles that didn't allow them show off the talent they have. Rashida Jones is easily one of the funniest women in show business, so I can't understand why she did this movie, she had a boring 2D character who was just there to motivate Frost to become a new man, and I think that he should have ended up with Colman's character in the end, they seemed perfect for each other. It had a lot of potential and essentially let me down, I think you would be better off avoiding Cuban Fury.

An overweight, down on his luck man tries to impress his new boss by learning salsa dancing and hopefully winning her heart.

Best Performance: Chris O'Dowd Worst Performance: Rashida Jones
