Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead, The World's End) stars as Bruce, a chubby Londoner who was once hailed as a teen salsa dancing prodigy until a bullying incident cut his career short. 22 years later, the arrival of a new boss (Parks & Recreation's Rashida Jones) encourages Bruce back on to the dancefloor.

Out of shape and down on his luck, Bruce (Frost) bears little resemblance to his once-promising younger salsa-loving self, but he's inspired to rediscover his long lost talent to impress beautiful new American boss Julia (Jones). Meanwhile, office alpha male Drew (Chris O'Dowd, Bridesmaids) is also vying for Julia's attention and tries every dirty trick in the book to thwart Bruce's efforts. Supporting cast includes Ian McShane, Rory Kinnear, Kayvan Novak, Olivia Colman, Bridesmaids' Wendi McLendon-Covey and SNL's Rachel Dratch and Liz Cackowski.

There’s a type of lazy high concept comedy that thrives on casting people in unexpected roles. Hey, it’s Will Ferrell as a basketballer/ice skater/soccer coach! Kevin James is a MMA fighter/zookeeper/comedian that audiences are somehow supposed to find funny!

An amiable tale of courage and redemption.

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

[An] amiable but flat-footed debut feature.

This comedy never quite relaxes or convinces or comes together.

Busts a few minor moves, but not as light on its feet as it wants to be.

Frost’s solo movie lacks the inventive madness of his Cornetto team-ups, but it’s still a heartfelt blast of fun.
