I really enjoyed it .

Overall yes playing with fire is predictable and silly in places.

This is by far the worst movie I have ever watched/ever made.

judy greer, keegan michael key, john leguizamo are great, the kids are good, john cena is a little dull.

Save your money and give this one a miss .

No chemistry amongst the cast, long lulls of nothing happening, botched story line, the list goes on and on.

The comedy was actually funny and entertaining, and presented perfectly by every actor (even the little ones).

Total waste of money...

Having the whole dynamic of different relationships between the different characters throughout was always charming and entertaining and they managed to keep this tone throughout the movie truly showing what there vision for the movie was in a great and consistent way throughout.

There's misunderstandings, "comedy" and every cliche in the book and so on.

Very family friendly and I highly recommend it.

This move is boring, predictable, and relies on unfunny broad physical comedy or pointless gross-out humour.

Loved This Movie So Funny Really Enjoyed it This Movie Deserves A Lot Better

But it's a kids movie and they enjoyed it.

Again, you have to look past this and it will be really funny and enjoyable.

" As the movie dragged along I fell asleep sometime after their first night at the station.

Probably the best description of the movie is a totally unfunny cliché.

I think it's nice to stop taking things seriously every once in a while and just watch a feel-good predictable movie.

It's predictably and rushed storytelling sort of cheated me out of a complete picture, while the lack of more adult based humor will potentially bore others who have outgrown the family friendly humor.

LIKES:Funny Fast Paced Good Writing Lots of Comedy Styles Cute/Adorable TouchingDISIKES:Predictable Seems A Bit Rushed Imbalance Of Styles The Trailers Have Touched A LotThe VERDICT:If you've seen the trailers, you can pretty much expect what the trailers promised for this film.

Next the film had a entertaining and charming tone, and had a surprisingly amount of emotion and heart to it.


But it offers an entertaining and funny comedy with a surprising amount of heart and emotion to it that works well enough for me.

The story line is both adventurous and exciting.

The ending was kind of sweet but even that was cliche.

Has the potential, but it was boring for me.

One of the few movies I ever walked out on.

It feels very repetitive with crazy stuff happening everytime and that's it for the whole movie.

A Funny Kid-Friendly Comedy that is definitely Worth the Watch .

Funny in places I enjoyed it

Utter waste of time and money.

People saying there's no story?

Enjoyable without having kids.

Boring, over silly, & dumbed down .

Good entertaining movie for the whole family.

I took my son to see it and although there were a few bits that tickled his funny bone, he seemed really quite bored throughout.

Worst movie ever seen so cheesy like 2 year old movie

Predictable characters, predictable story, & predictable outcome but that is the whole point of this movie....

Please don't waste your money on this terrible terrible movie.

It's a kids movie and my kids enjoyed it, that's all that really counts.

Usually parents have to suffer through movies with their kids but this one was pretty enjoyable for everyone.

The comedy is predictable, repeated, and terrible; the acting was very bad

Too many consecutive scenes in the movie were downright boring.

A little overdone and predictable.

I found Fire to be a thoroughly enjoyable 90-minute romp through the look of single men dealing with kids who have been caught in tragic circumstances.

It's an interesting subject but this is total and complete waste of time.
