Molly the Cat's ABC Wednesday Movie for the Letter C


Missus Lady can watch a great romance story over and over. And over again. I don't know how many times she has watched the different versions of Pride and Prejudice and Jane Eyre. She always stops at Two Weeks Notice, with Sandra Bullock and Hugh Grant, when she's channel surfing and Hero Man is not sitting next to her. If he is, she grabs for the remote and flips to the movie during commercials.

Hero Man is fine with watching any movie once. But, he might think differently about this week's movie pick that they both enjoyed. It's another British film, by the way.

Cuban Fury (2014)

Settings: Office and dance floor, somewhere in England.

Bruce is 39 years old, shy, overweight, and unhappy, trudging from home to work to home day after day. At work he is hounded by his disgusting colleague Drew. If Bruce ever fought back, he would winMeeeeewwwwww!

Bruce used to be full of energy and spirit when he was a youngster. He was in fact a junior salsa dancing prince. He lived to salsa. Then one day, while he was in costume heading for a competition, he got beat up by a bunch of imbecilic boys.

Poor Bruce. That was the end of his salsa career. And, joy.

Back to the present. One day Bruce gets a new boss, Julia, who is a gorgeous, smart, and witty American. Bruce is in love. But he thinks he has no chance when creepy Drew tells him that he's going to have Julia. By chance (of course) Bruce learns that Julia loves to salsa

Out of shape, can Bruce salsa again? Can he win Julia's heart with his salsa? Can he feel joy again with salsa?

Bruce is played by Nick Frost, who is Simon Pegg's partner in a whole bunch of comedies, such as Paul, The World's End, and Hot Fuzz. Missus Lady thinks Mr. Frost is a teddy bear of a cutie. Both she and Hero Man loved the dance scenes and were impressed that Mr. Frost did his own dancing. Salsa music is fast-paced and long. A lot of constant movement going on. Very tiring. Meeewwwww. Prior to the shooting of the movie, Mr. Frost practiced salsa in the dance studio six to seven hours, five to six days a week, for seven months.  That's dedication!

The movie was based on an idea by the talented Mr. Frost. This was a fun and sweet movie. Purrrrrrrrrrr.

    1. I've turned the corner to bad news, too. So, right now I mostly sit in my chair and shake my booty to the music. I get a pretty good work out. lol

  10. Sounds like a fun movie. For some reason I always have trouble understanding the King's English. When I watched Downton Abbey I had to have the words to read which is a bit of a distraction. Of course, when we were first married we lived in Georgia and I had trouble understanding the people there too. That's OK...they probably had trouble understanding my New Jersey accent.

    1. The Husband and I use the subtitles on almost all the movies we watch these days, including the American ones. We can't decide if it's our hearing or the mush-mouths of actors under 50. Maybe both. haha

  11. Sounds great -- I love Brit movies. Thanks to Mollie and you for the good review . As i was just about to send this, I noticed your comment reply above about subtitles -- Bill and I use wireless headphones when we watch TV -- we look like a couple of old geeks but they have made an incredible difference -- I can understand every word.

    1. Hmmm, I'll tell the Husband. That would be be better than the volume up way high. I often wonder if people walking by could hear our TV.
