  • Gary Goldstein

    Don't let the cheesy title deter you. Cuban Fury is a thoroughly engaging crowd-pleaser — sweet, quite amusing and even a tad inspiring.

  • Matt Glasby

    A great big bear-hug of a Britcom, with rhinestones on its shirt, salsa in its heart and dick jokes up its sleeve. Something for everyone, then.

  • Leba Hertz

    A pleasant diversion starring the always amiable Nick Frost, with Chris O'Dowd relishing his role as a slimeball.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    Cuban Fury has a surprising amount of fun with these acknowledged clichés. At times, the movie has the energy of an "Anchorman"-style spoof — a hilarious late-movie dance-off between Bruce and Drew takes on absurdist overtones, as they dance on car roofs and do increasingly impossible moves.

  • Chris Nashawaty

    Frost is a likable bloke with a deft physical grace to match his rat-a-tat one-liners. But all the sequins and silk shirts in the world can’t disguise the film’s too-familiar formula.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

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

    It is just plain fun to observe Frost as Bruce while he happily shimmies and shakes his way to regaining his once-renown "feet of flames." Full Review
  • Bruce Ingram

    A little more fury might have been a whole lot better.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Chris Cabin

    The film is thin on concept and limited in style, but the filmmakers have the good sense to let their characters remain playful and goofy throughout.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Sheri Linden

    Frost is a likable lead and an easy rooting interest. But his affability isn’t enough to give this silly-sweet feature the edge and dimension that would make it a memorable contribution to the subgenre epitomized by The Full Monty — comedies in which middle-aged, unassuming Brits discover their inner showman.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Charles Gant

    Overall, it’s just enough to send the date-movie crowd home with a smile on their face and a tingle of joy in their heart.

    Variety Full Review
  • Guy Lodge

    [An] amiable but flat-footed debut feature.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Nick de Semlyen

    Saturday Night Fever by way of Strictly Come Dancing, Frost’s solo movie lacks the inventive madness of his Cornetto team-ups, but it’s still a heartfelt blast of fun.

    Empire Full Review
  • Steve Davis

    This is a movie tailor-made for cheering on the not-so-little guy to find his self-esteem, dazzle the judges, and win the girl.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Nicolas Rapold

    Not that some of this isn’t amusing, but you feel the considerable improvisational skills of the cast going to waste.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Sara Stewart

    A rather unremarkable, if endearing, entry in the quirky rom-com genre.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Mike D'Angelo

    Only one scene — the very one that Pegg shows up in — demonstrates any real creativity, and even that mostly amounts to a couple of goofy dudes attempting to intimidate each other with terrible dance moves.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Tasha Robinson

    Cuban Fury feels overpadded and distracted, with no time to establish its leads, let alone the bare connection between them that might give viewers a rooting interest in their future.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Amy Nicholson

    Frost can play lovable losers in his sleep, but to succeed, Cuban Fury has to make him dance. A fat man falling down gets a cheap laugh; a fat man with magic feet makes us cheer. Director James Griffiths splits the difference between ridicule and respect, and the resulting comedy is as trite and cloying as a rum and coke.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Peter Bradshaw

    This comedy never quite relaxes or convinces or comes together, despite a blue-chip pedigree and a great cast.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Robbie Collin

    Cuban Fury belongs to an older, unfunnier time. Please let’s not go back.
