Office worker Bruce Garrett (Nick Frost) is seeking redemption on the dancefloor. He tucked away his sequins years ago after being bullied at school, but dusts them down when the new boss (Rashida Jones) he's fallen for turns out to be a salsa fan. Frost doesn't quite convince as a dancer, but he's a nimble comedian and there's plenty of support from a vibrant cast including Olivia Colman and Chris O'Dowd.Paul Howlett, The Guardian, 5th May 2017
As Quincy's daughter, Rashida Jones might have been just another Hollywood brat. But the Parks And Recreation star has a Harvard degree - and big plans for America's funniest women.Hadley Freeman, The Guardian, 14th February 2014
Fans of Strictly should find plenty to enjoy here, even if the story is far from memorable.
Bullied by local yobs into hanging up his dancing shoes as a child, the now adult Bruce (Frost) it tempted to return to the ballroom after learning his foxy new boss is a huge salsa fan.
You don't need a degree in rom-coms to know the whole thing is going to end in a dazzling dance contest but, for an hour and a half, Frost and co-stars Rashida Jones and Chris O'Dowd provide amiable enough company.David Edwards, The Mirror, 14th February 2014

As a romantic comedy it has, alas, two left feet.Brian Viner, Daily Mail, 14th February 2014
Hopefully Nick Frost is enjoying the positive reviews that The World's End is currently receiving because word is that his next film, Cuban Fury, is not going quite as well. After months of editing and re-shoots, and a release date moved from 2013 to 2014, some of those involved are worried that it's, well, just not funny.Popbitch, 25th July 2013
"It's a romantic-comedy but with fantastic, real dancing," Nick Frost explains. "We're going to go down the Strictly Ballroom route. The dancing will be fiery and passionate and beautiful to watch, with me and Chris O'Dowd pratting about when we're not dancing."Phil de Semlyen, Empire, 3rd May 2012
