Win 1 of 10 double passes to Cuban Fury

entertainment

Beneath Bruce Garrett's shabby, overweight exterior, the passionate beating heart of a salsa king lays dormant. Only one woman can reignite his Latin fire. Spotlight hits, sweat drips, heels click - Nick Frost IS Cuban Fury.

1987: A 13-year-old natural born dancer with fire in his heels and snakes in his hips is working himself up to explode all over the UK Junior Salsa Championships. But then a freakish bullying incident on the mean streets of London robs him of his confidence, and our young hero finds his life diverted down a very different path.

So it is that 22 years later, an adult Bruce Garrett (Nick Frost) finds himself out-of-shape and unloved - trapped in a downward spiral of self-pity, repression and Nando's takeouts. Only Julia (Rashida Jones), his smart, funny, gorgeous new American boss, gives him reason to live. But she's out of his league, so he imagines, with her perfect smile and perfect life. Unknown to Bruce however, Julia has issues all of her own. Luckily for him, she also has a secret passion...

Then there's Drew (Chris O'Dowd), his alpha male colleague and horny king-monkey of the office. With Drew making no secret of his desire to get physical with Julia, Bruce is forced into action. And thus, Bruce is once again brought face-to-face with the darkest and most powerful of his inner demons. Somehow, someway, and with a lot of handholding from loyal sister Sam (Olivia Colman) Bruce must learn how to unshackle his dancing beast, regain his long lost fury and claim the love of his life... and he's going to do it all On The Dance Floor.

Hits cinemas 20 March. Rated: M. Watch the trailer.

Thanks to STUDIOCANAL, we have 10 double passes each worth $36 up for grabs. Enter here!

The MINI Cooper Paceman
car reviews - cars for mum

2014 MINI Cooper Paceman

The Mini Cooper Paceman coupe is sleek, sporty and set to take off at full throttle. The two-door four-seat Paceman is Mini’s latest incarnation of the Cooper car. The Paceman model is essentially a smaller two-door version of the four-door Countryman, and sits next to the three-door Clubman like a muscle-bound big brother. It’s kind of a cross between a super-compact SUV and a coupe.

Style & Drive

As opposed to the low-slung Cooper hatch seat, the Paceman driver’s seat is set high, and the front windscreen is large and wide, so you really do feel like you’re piloting a plane. The hand brake looks like an airplane throttle which only adds to the effect. The handling is excellent and the four-cylinder in-line petrol engine has a lot of power. The sports bucket seats in the front are snug and form-fitting.

2014 BMW 116i

The 116i is the entry-level model of BMW’s 1 Series. Though it may be the baby of the family it’s still a force to be reckoned with.

Style & Drive

The five-seat eight-speed automatic 116i hatch is powered by a TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder in-line petrol engine with a TwinScroll turbocharger, high precision injection, valvetronic variable valve control and double- VANOS variable camshaft control. Sounds impressive huh? Basically all that tech talk translates to a powerful engine that makes the hatch a pleasure to drive. The start-stop engine takes a while to get used to, but once you’re accustomed to it you can appreciate its excellent fuel-efficiency. The 116i has ECO PRO, Comfort and Sport settings to play with. If you’re after fuel efficiency, ECO PRO is for you. If you’re after some fun, switch to Sport and keep it there.

The new Nissan Juke
car reviews - cars for mum

2014 Nissan Juke ST

The Nissan Juke is compact, chunky and funky. The Juke’s design may be polarizing but it sure is a lot of fun to drive!

Style & Drive

The five-seat Nissan Duke is available with either a 1.6-litre four-cylinder petrol engine (ST) or a 1.6L four-cylinder turbo petrol engine (ST-S and Ti-S). We had the pleasure of taking the entry-level Juke ST auto out for a test drive.

The Juke is fast off the blocks and corners beautifully. Steering was responsive and suspension was good. We drove in Sport mode most of the time which made for a very enjoyable ride. The interior of the car has a cool airplane cockpit vibe to it.

The design of the centre stack is youthful and fun. Admittedly I did spend a bit of time fumbling around, turning knobs and pushing buttons trying to find the air-conditioning controls. In a bit of genius design, the Climate and the Drive-Mode controls are doubled on the same instrument panel. Click the “Climate” button and all the air-con controls light up on the buttons. Click “D-Mode” and the same buttons light up with options to drive in Eco, Sports, or Normal mode.

The ST comes with a four-speaker stereo with USB/MP3/iPod connectivity, cruise control, Bluetooth integration, 17-inch alloys and a space-saving spare. The cloth seats are comfortable though leg room is a little tight in the rear and the middle sat in the back is tiny. With both a rear-facing and a forward-facing car seat installed, there was no room for a third passenger to fit in the middle seat, and leg room for the front passenger was severely compromised with the rear-facing car seat in the back.
