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.

Overall, Cuban Fury isn't as funny or original as you want it to be, but the cast do an exceptionally job of giving this small, sweet film plenty of heart.

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

Nick Frost delivers one of the great physical performances of the modern cinema era. Sexually, though, [Cuban Fury] is inexplicably playing for a decidedly 'adult humour' audience, thus eliminating ( ... ) family audiences.

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

Room-for-humor crowd pleaser, moderately entertaining.
