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

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

I really enjoyed it .

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

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

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

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

One of the few movies I ever walked out on.


Boring, over silly, & dumbed down .

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.

Good entertaining movie for the whole family.

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

Total waste of money...

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.

Enjoyable without having kids.

A little overdone and predictable.

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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

People saying there's no story?

Too many consecutive scenes in the movie were downright boring.

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

The story line is both adventurous and exciting.
