This seems like a sure bet for a good date movie. Based on an idea by Frost, CUBAN FURY is a much more mainstream movie than fans of his cult-fave collaborations with Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead, The World's End, etc.) might expect. But though it's all very familiar, and every element is firmly in place, the movie also has plenty of warm, tingly energy and many genuine laughs, not to mention some great, exciting dance sequences.

Cuban Fury smartly allows its main character to rediscover salsa dancing as a way to find strength, rather than merely as a way to win the girl. (It forgoes the usual "lie plot" involved in most romantic comedies.) And Jones plays Julia with plenty of brains and wit; she's not just eye candy. Character actor Kayvan Novak easily walks away with most of the movie's laughs, giving the kind of performance that made Melissa McCarthy a star in Bridesmaids. As an extra treat, Frost's dancing is truly amazing!
