Movie pick: Cuban Fury(NC16)
Nick Frost (Bruce Garrett) in Cuban Fury.

It's hard to imagine a worse title for a movie.

Nothing against Cuba, but it doesn't exactly enjoy top-of-mind awareness among the movie-going public.

Due to the lame title, you're probably not going to see it but I'll tell you about it anyway.

Nick Frost plays Bruce, an overweight guy who picks up salsa dancing after a long hiatus in order to impress his pretty boss (Rashida Jones).

His rival in love is the office Lothario (Chris O'Dowd).

The premise of the movie is cute and Frost is lovable, but it's kind of hard to suspend disbelief during the dance scenes.

Frost is supposed to be a great dancer, but he really isn't that good, and all the special effects they throw at him don't help very much.

Anyway, the dude is a comedian and the flick is kinda fun.
