It's not a masterpiece, but it's fun.

There are plenty of reviews here breaking down the details, so I won't go into them. The storyline is basically the old "loser shows he's a winner and gets the girl" staple, with the salsa dancefloor as the battleground.

The salsa scene portraid is a bit of a caricature, well it's a comedy after all, but I think it gets a lot of the essence of it, all sorts of characters of all shapes and sizes getting together in places varying from upstairs rooms in pubs to big nightclubs and just fun sharing the music and the dancing. It's a parody, but an affectionate one.

And anyone who's danced salsa in London can play "spot the dancer I know" in the final scenes, because they used real London salsa dancers as extras. I think I've had lessons from pretty much everyone on that competition dance floor over the years.

Full of heart

A nice little film that is chock full of heart (or of course 'El Corazón') Nick frost has a geeky charm that means you really can't help but like him whatever he's in. He does well to carry this film as the central character and is helped along by a strong supporting cast. Everyone nails their respective roles, particularly Chris O'Dowd who really is a loathsome creep throughout. It seems weird to see Frost without Pegg as they are so interlinked in our minds (but there is a lovely redeeming shot to make us all feel at ease once again). The dancing and music is fantastic and massive credit to Nick Frost for his skills on the dance floor. My favourite scene by far is a fantastic satirical dance off between frost and O'Dowd to 'win the girl'. This is just brilliant and these two pull it of perfectly. Fun film, good acting, plenty of feel good vibes.

The game is on, on the salsa floor.

I had no idea about this film. Just saw its poster and it reminded me 'This Means War'. Sort of like that, but it's not about the spies, instead it was about salsa. An average guy who gave up salsa during his childhood, once again sparked to take it up seriously after finding crush on his new boss who loves salsa. But he's not alone, his colleague who's a bully is on to her and thwarts all his attempts not to get near to her. Now he has to prove, not just to win the love, but his last passion for salsa.

Totally a surprising film. It was not utterly a romance theme, but a music, about salsa. The romance was a small part of it. It was somewhat fun, but I find it a bit dramatic about redefining the passion that was given up a log back. And if you love salsa, you might enjoy it. But it was not like those dance flicks from Hollywood. All the important segments of the story come in the second half. Especially the final act was much better, to end on a high. A film to watch once, just for fun.

6.5/10
