Soooo fun. Great for the whole family. My 8 year old boy and 15 year old daughter loved it. I laughed out loud mybe 10 times and got watery eyes several times. A postive loving ending.

At first I was so bothered by how rudely behaved the kids were. It frustrated me! After getting through a few minutes, it was absolutely hilarious and well my husband and I cried a few times. It’s definitely worth the watch. Kid appropriate film and adult as well.

This movie is exactly what you expect it to be. Hilarious! Heart warming. Cute and a little corny. Overall, a great family movie!

It is a movie beholden to disparate, disconnected moments of physical comedy (usually performed most adeptly by Keegan-Michael Key), and makes no sense beyond this. It's not to say this is a "bad" movie, but I can't imagine recommending it beyond a few choice moments that could've easily been YouTube clips. Ehhhhh.

I really liked this movie. My husband and I went, we don’t have kids but you don’t need kiddos to enjoy and family friendly movie. John cena and the other cast members do a fantastic job in the movie.

This movie is extremely family friendly to the point that it’s almost kind of boring to an adult but I would say it’s definitely something you can take the kids to. It is an entertaining movie but it can get a bit silly.

Key, Leguizamo, Greer, and Haysbert actually look like their having a good time and investing their acting talent in this silly story without flinching. No one’s phoning it in. John Cena is just a little too cartoony in his straight-laced character and somehow manages to make “normal” feel over-the-top.

Playing With Fire strikes strictly predictably beats. Key and Leguizamo, comic talents who are wildly overqualified for this sort of thing, work hard, very hard, to infuse the tired material with laughs. But they're mostly hamstrung by their one-note characters

The film is bland and predictable, underestimates kids’ abilities to understand story and humor, and relies way too much on sight gags that are clichéd and overdone.
