About the Movie
1987: 13-year-old Bruce Garrett, a natural born salsa dancer with fire in his heels and the world at his feet, is perfectly poised to clinch the title at the UK Junior Salsa Championships. But then... a freakish bullying incident on the mean streets of London robs him of his sequins and his confidence, and our young hero finds his life diverted down a very different path. So it is that 25 years later, an adult Bruce Garrett (Nick Frost), finds himself out-of-shape, unloved and emotionally inert - trapped in a downward spiral of self pity. It takes Julia (Rashida Jones), his smart, funny, gorgeous new American boss, to force him to confront the demons of his past and re-examine his passionless existence. Bruce fears it's an impossible challenge - she's way out of his league ("She's a 10, I'm a 2!") and long held self doubts prove tricky to shed. Luckily for him, Julia also has a secret passion... salsa dancing. Maybe, just maybe, this is his way in... But life is never that easy for Bruce. First he's got to get past Drew (Chris O’Dowd), the oversexed alphamale of the office and Bruce's tirelessly taunting team manager. With Drew making no secret of his desire to make Julia his latest conquest, Bruce is forced into action and brought face-to-face with his darkest and most powerful inner demons. Somehow, with a lot of handholding from loyal sister Sam (Olivia Colman), his old mentor Ron (Ian McShane) and crazy new amateur salsa pal Bejan (Novak) Bruce must learn to unshackle his dancing beast, regain his long lost fury and claim the love of his life... and he’s got to do it all On The Dance Floor... The producers of Shaun of The Dead, Hot Fuzz, Scott Pilgrim, Paul, Attack The Block, The World’s End and Sightseers bring together some of the finest comedy talent with some of the world's best salsa dancers. With a thumping score, a dash of sequins and a large squeeze of comedy and romance, Cuban Fury is a movie cocktail that satisfies like no other.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Not that some of this isn't amusing, but you feel the considerable improvisational skills of the cast going to waste.
Fresh: Overall, it's just enough to send the date-movie crowd home with a smile on their face and a tingle of joy in their heart.
Fresh: Don't let the cheesy title deter you. "Cuban Fury" is a thoroughly engaging crowd-pleaser - sweet, quite amusing and even a tad inspiring.
Rotten: Busts a few minor moves, but not as light on its feet as it wants to be.
Great movie with good actors!
Refreshing plot and a good cast. I liked it a lot :)
another movie, looks like it was thrown together without costs. I was hoping that there would be some dancing,practice,competition but nope.Another let down. The kid at the beginning should of stayed in 1987 for like most of the movie. Let the sci-fi actor go back home. He was great in the roswell movies , but too big to cast salsa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
