Movie Info

When straight-laced fire superintendent Jake Carson and his elite team of firefighters come to the rescue of three siblings, they quickly realize that no amount of training could prepare them for their most challenging job yet -- babysitting. As their lives, jobs and depot get turned upside down, the three men soon learn that children -- much like fires -- are wild and unpredictable.

Critic Reviews for Playing With Fire

All Critics (74) | Top Critics (21) | Fresh (17) | Rotten (57)

  • There is an OK movie trapped in here. It needs someone to helicopter in and lift it out.

    December 30, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • It turns out that sluggishly edited shots of big men pushing trolleys and buying plush toys is not, in fact, an adequate replacement for writing some funny lines.

    December 29, 2019 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • The cast are so willing to put their egos aside -- like a children's party clown on their last resort -- that it's easy to be won over by all the goodwill on show.

    December 27, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • As they used to say in Mad magazine: yecch.

    December 19, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • This might matter if we had been encouraged to care more about the kids' fate, but the script is so bad that you care instead about the actors and their vain efforts to do something with its cliches.

    December 11, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Playing with Fire makes increasingly strange choices that feel feel like the film itself is mocking the people who the smokejumpers have to save.
