Movie Review: "Playing with Fire," Plus a Giveaway for a Family Fun Kit!

To celebrate Playing with Fire being released on Digital January 21st and on Blu-ray February 4th, visitors to Susan Heim on Parenting have the chance to win a Playing with Fire Family Fun Kit! Read on to learn more about the movie and my review, and then enter to win!

About Playing with Fire (Rated PG):
When firefighter Jake Carson (John Cena) and his team (Keegan-Michael Key and John Leguizamo) rescue three siblings in the path of a wildfire, they quickly realize that no amount of training could have prepared them for their most challenging job yet -- babysitting. While trying to locate the children’s parents, the firefighters have their lives, jobs and even their fire station turned upside down and learn that kids -- much like fires -- are wild and full of surprises.

My review:
If you’re a fan of slapstick, physical comedy, then you’ll love Playing with Fire! It’s a whole series of goofball disasters that will keep you laughing. But underlying the hilarity is a message of learning to express your feelings and defining what encompasses a family. There’s plenty of humor, action, and cute kids, the perfect formula for a family comedy that every member will enjoy. If you’re looking for a movie that doesn’t take itself too seriously, and you just want to kick back and chuckle, I suggest you watch Playing with Fire!
