Cuban Fury

Child salsa prodigy gets his groove back

Prompted by the arrival at his company of a pretty new boss (Rashida Jones) who’s into salsa dancing, Bruce (Nick Frost), a now-overweight child salsa prodigy who 25 years ago was bullied into quitting, seeks out his childhood dance teacher (Ian McShane) to get his groove back. A training montage occurs. A big dance contest looms. Chris O’Dowd’s a smarmy ladies-man coworker. Yes, this Brit-com date movie is pretty formulaic, but hard to dislike. And while there’s not a lot of fury or other strong emotion in evidence, it remains an amiable if somewhat flat-footed, forgettable entertainment. Japanese title: Comeback! (98 min)
