Consensus: Nick Frost and Chris O'Dowd remain as undeniably likable as ever, but Cuban Fury saddles them with a contrived and predictable plot that's far too short on laughs.

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

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

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

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.

Under the Radar

Being about 70% romantic-comedy and 30% quirky underdog sports movie, to call the plot of Cuban Fury predictable would be an understatement.

Room-for-humor crowd pleaser, moderately entertaining.

Cute but nothing special. A little slow in parts but the charm of the cast tips this to the positive side.
