    Nick Frost came up with the story for this comedy, and then it blossomed into something really funny, and with a nice Romantic Comedy edge. When bullies stop him from dancing in the National championships Bruce turns his back on the whole thing and ends up being a very good draftsman for a engineering company. While dealing with that one co-worker that we all have that deserves a punchNick Frost came up with the story for this comedy, and then it blossomed into something really funny, and with a nice Romantic Comedy edge. When bullies stop him from dancing in the National championships Bruce turns his back on the whole thing and ends up being a very good draftsman for a engineering company. While dealing with that one co-worker that we all have that deserves a punch in the face, played well by Chris O’Dowd. When the new boss comes in and both Bruce and Drew want to fight for her attention it provides most of the humour. This is a date night Romantic Comedy that both sides of the relationship will find a lot to like. It’s almost like a male version of Bridget Jones, but with Salsa dancing. The dance off scene in the car park makes this a more special movie, although there is some help with special effects to make Frost dance better, you still have to give the man props for being able to move as well as he can for that size. As a big guy myself I know I couldn’t dance like that, and not one of you would want that. Don’t be fooled that this is a chick flick, it’s a good comedy that will make you laugh. Expand

    This is a movie tailor-made for cheering on the not-so-little guy to find his self-esteem, dazzle the judges, and win the girl.

    It ends up feeling a little like warmed-over "Strictly Ballroom" without Baz Lurhmann's over-the-top sense of style.

    Cuban Fury has a surprising amount of fun with these acknowledged clichés. At times, the movie has the energy of an "Anchorman"-style spoof — a hilarious late-movie dance-off between Bruce and Drew takes on absurdist overtones, as they dance on car roofs and do increasingly impossible moves.
