Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Cuban Fury -- a British romantic comedy with plenty of salsa dancing -- stars cult-fave actor Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead). Its biggest issue is heavy verbal sexual innuendo, as well as one scene that shows a man getting undressed in a woman's apartment (nothing happens). Language is also fairly strong, with uses of "f--k," "p---y," and "s--t." The main character faces bullies -- both in his childhood and in adulthood, though the grown-up bully merely taunts and teases him (his childhood bullies beat him up). A big "dance-off" battle scene -- in which the main characters attempt to out-dance each other -- is pretty aggressive but also funny. Adult characters drink fairly frequently, mostly in a social way, though in one scene, the main character comes home staggering drunk, with intended-to-be-comic after-effects. The soda Fanta gets a comical promotion in one scene. While it's not appropriate for younger viewers, older teens and adults may find it a good date movie.

Sexual Content

Strong verbal sexual references, particularly involving the bully co-worker's attempts to sleep with his pretty new boss; he uses heavy, frequent innuendo (intended to be comic). In a scene of comical misunderstanding, he's seen in her apartment wearing only his underwear, socks, and shirt. (No actual sex happens.) And the salsa dancing itself can be quite sexy, especially when involving voluptuous women in skimpy outfits.


Cuban Fury starts with a flashback of young Bruce being attacked and beaten by bullies. The images are quickly cut and aren't graphic, though they do have an impact. The grown-up hero and his bullying co-worker have a big dance-fight sequence in which they try to out-dance each other; the sequence is played like a battle, with aggressiveness and attacks. There's also an antagonistic relationship between these two in the office, with harsh teasing and veiled threats.


Language is fairly strong, including many uses of "f--k," plus "p---y," "a--hole," "s--t," "bastard," "ass," etc., as well as lots of sexual innuendoes.

Social Behavior

A character learns to believe in himself. At first he thinks he can win the woman of his dreams by impressing her with his dancing, but he soon comes to discover that he must dance for himself, rather than for her. He also overcomes a childhood bullying incident and rediscovers his passion, and he overcomes an adult bully in the workplace.


One character drinks and pretty much endorses the soda Fanta (he prefers drinking it flat), though the scene is definitely comical.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Adult characters drink socially fairly often; i.e., at an office party or in the pub where the main character's sister works. Drinks range from beer to vodka shots. In one scene, the main character returns home, staggering drunk, and proceeds to (inadvertently) wreck his apartment while going through old boxes, records, etc., and attempting to dance. In the morning, he wakes up and sees the destruction.
