Gosh, really? I expected so much more from this. Yes it was nice and fluffy but hasn't this story been done to death already? Some of the dialogue was uber-clunky plus some of the characters were pure cliche and it wasn't as funny as it should have been. The dance-off/fight in the parking garage plus the cameo was fun but that was about it.

6/10

Saw this in a sparsely populated Edinburgh Omni tonight. Fluff and nonsense but good fun. The cameo probably got the biggest laugh of the night. Good old British entertainment with an American twist. 6/10 from me and sounds like by far the better Edinburgh option for the night!!

Saw this tonight in Edinburgh. Nice easy going film with a fair share of laughs. Chris O Dowd very good in the sleeze bag role and Nick frost very funny...kept expecting a thinned down version of him as he did more dancing but nope cuddly to the end. No Q & A session at ours so straight out for a curry (Groupon deal) so great night out for very little spent. X

Thought this film was great. Funny throughout and a heart warming story. Perfect for killing 2 hours and guaranteed to leave the cinema with a smile on your face.

Saw this yesterday and while I expected a bit more from it, it did have its funny moments, most of them from Kayvan Novak as Bejan. I loved the parking lot dance-off and feel that if the rest of the film was as good as that I would've been more impressed. 6/10

Sadly I couldn't stay for the Q&A but it was nice having the intro.

This was simply fantastic. Definitely worth braving the elements for.

Plenty of laughs, a major villian who you felt like booing everytime he appeared, romance & salsa. What else do you need?

Loved every second of this. The dancing made me want to learn salsa, I really wanted to go into the screen and punc Chris o dowds character myself. And strangely that cameo had me in tears for quite some time :')
Made all the more better by Nick Frost casually walking in and introducing the film, as well as staying for a very surreal Q and A experience!
Definitely needed that after my week so far!
9/10!!
