What parents need to know

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.
