As I chortled my way through this enjoyably predictable, R-rated comedy (language and alcohol), my mind was awash with all my favorite old dance movies that had just received a cinematic tip of the hat: "Footloose," "Dirty Dancing," "Dance With Me," "Saturday Night Fever," "Fame," "Shall We Dance?" "The Full Monty," and "Strictly Ballroom" for starters. I"m sure you can add a few.
We follow a former teenage championship salsa dancer who had been waylaid by a gang of bullies on his way to the finals. He ended up burning his dance shoes and never looked back. Now, 22 years later, he's an adult who never seems to finish anything, but mentions maybe he might dance again. Our hero has a posse of friends who are understandably skeptical, after all, he has NEVER danced in the twenty years they have known him.
Let's look at the cast:
I must commend Jonathan Amos with his tight and seamless editing. He convinced ME that Frost did all that dancing!
BTW, keep a sharp lookout in the parking garage for a don't-blink-or-you'll-miss-him cameo by Nick Frost's chum Simon Pegg!
