Cuban Fury

Put on your dancing shoes...

Having been Simon Pegg’s sidekick for so long, Nick Frost was surely overdue a solo vehicle. The odd thing with this one, about an overweight sad-sack who reignites his ardour for salsa to court co-worker Rashida Jones, is how often Nick is sidelined by his own supporting cast.

Whether he’s sharing the screen with office bully Chris O’Dowd, camp dancing pal Kayvan Novak, or sister Olivia Colman, Frost is always upstaged, a flaw that helmer James Griffiths compounds by having dancing doubles shimmy in at key hoofing moments. The result? A farce where all the fun is on the fringes.
