Atom User Reviews for Playing with Fire
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.

Great family-oriented movie
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.
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.
