Cuban Fury

Now Playing Synopsis: James Griffiths' Cuban Fever stars Nick Frost as Bruce Garrett who was a proud champion Salsa dancer as a teen, but gave it all up when some bullies administered a beating while he was on his way to an important tournament. He hung up the shoes long ago and has a white-collar nine-to-five job, but when he learns his newest boss, a very pretty American businesswoman named Julia (Rashida Jones), takes Salsa lessons, he thinks this might be a way to win her heart. In order to scrape the rust off, he pays a visit to his long-ago teacher, the no-nonsense Ron Parfitt (Ian McShane), who is still teaching, but also still holds a grudge that Bruce quit on him 20 years earlier. As the gruff instructor puts Bruce through the paces again, our hero discovers that Drew (Chris O'Dowd), his best frenemy at work, is already in hot pursuit of Julia, and that Drew certainly plays by the old adage that all's fair in love and war. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi Cast: Nick Frost, Rashida Jones, Chris O'Dowd, Olivia Colman, Ian McShane Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review
