Nick Frost hopes to impress Rashida Jones with dance moves in Cuban Fury trailer

11.14.2013

Nick Frost and salsa dancing. Don't naturally go together, you wouldn't think. But they sure do beautifully in the international trailer for CUBAN FURY, which can be found below.

In the film, Frost plays a working stiff (and former dance prodigy) who attempts to woo his beautiful new boss (Rashida Jones) via the art of sexy salsa dancing. Who wouldn't be swayed by that? Chris O'Dowd plays Frost's sarcastic co-worker, while Ian McShane is, naturally, his mentor. This looks like a very good-natured comedy, and it's quite cool to see Frost get a chance to flex his skills - physical and otherwise - as a leading man.

Directed by James Griffiths ("Episodes"), CUBAN FURY opens on Valentine's Day in the UK. It doesn't have a US release date yet, but when the time does come, it will be distributed by eOne.

Here's the (very long) official synopsis:

1987: A 13 year old natural born dancer with fire in his heels and snakes in his hips is working himself up to explode all over the UK Junior Salsa Championships. But then: a freakish bullying incident on the mean streets of London robs him of his confidence, and our young hero finds his life diverted down a very different path. So it is that 22 years later, an adult Bruce Garrett (Nick Frost) finds himself out-of-shape and unloved - trapped in a downward spiral of self-pity, repression and Nando's take-outs. Only Julia (Rashida Jones), his smart, funny, gorgeous new American boss, gives him reason to live. But she's untouchable. Out of his league, so he imagines, with her perfect smile and perfect life.

Unknown to Bruce however, Julia has issues all of her own. Luckily for him, she also has a secret passion. Then there's Drew (Chris O'Dowd), his alpha male colleague and horny king-monkey of the office. With Drew making no secret of his desire to get (his words) "all up inside Julia", Bruce is forced into action. And thus, Bruce is once again brought face-to-face with the darkest and most powerful of his inner demons. Somehow, someway, and with a lot of hand-holding from loyal sister Sam (Olivia Colman) Bruce must learn how to unshackle his dancing beast, regain his long lost fury and claim the love of his life...and he's going to do it all On The Dance Floor…

While I like the cast, I'm disappointed to see them in this mindless garbage usually left to actors like Kevin James Adam Sandler, and Rob Schneider.

I'm up for anything that Rashida Jones is in. She is just awesome - beautiful, smart, funny, and talented.
