As progressive as it might feel for fat guys, losers and salsa stalwarts, it's rotten for women

It's not a bad gimmick, but the movie turns tediously sentimental fast.

Ultimately, the film rides on Frost, who carries it with charm, grace and plenty of heart.

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

I don't know about you, but anything done with an English accent usually seems all the more tolerable for it.

A little more fury might have been a whole lot better.

There's nothing groundbreaking in "Cuban Fury," but it's a pleasant diversion starring the always amiable Nick Frost, with Chris O'Dowd relishing his role as a slimeball.

Not that some of this isn't amusing, but you feel the considerable improvisational skills of the cast going to waste.

Jon Brown's script, while good-natured, is overly predictable. But despite the challenges, Frost proves himself an unexpectedly nimble lead.

[It] has its laugh-out-loud moments. Most, unfortunately, come fairly late in the picture.

It wants to be a feel-good movie, but it's really just a "feel-meh" flick.
April 10, 2014
Don't let the cheesy title deter you. "Cuban Fury" is a thoroughly engaging crowd-pleaser - sweet, quite amusing and even a tad inspiring.
April 10, 2014
A rather unremarkable, if endearing, entry in the quirky rom-com genre.
April 10, 2014
Frost is credited with the "original idea," a fanciful phrase given the highly formulaic story, but he and Jones are charming together.
April 10, 2014
Frost has all it takes to run his own show. Now he just needs a better show.

Cuban Fury has a surprising amount of fun with these acknowledged clichés. At times, the movie has the energy of an Anchorman-style spoof ...

Cuban Fury feels like the product of a computer program that was fed a dozen screenwriting manuals and synthesized the ultimate generic rom-com.

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.

Busts a few minor moves, but not as light on its feet as it wants to be.

It's understandable that Frost would come up with a project like Cuban Fury as a way of winning our hearts. But he just doesn't have the acting skill to pull off the transformation from pathetic sad-sack to salsa king.
