MOVIE REVIEW/CONTEST: Playing with Fire

OWLconnected reader Ryan, 9, gives us the scoop on this hot new film
playing with fire


When serious fire superintendent Jake Carson (played by John Cena) and his crew rescue three siblings, they quickly learn that firefighting isn't nearly as tough as babysitting!

"Jake and the other firefighters are smoke jumpers; people who parachute into fires, put them out and rescue people. They save three kids from a burning cabin and then have to take care of them because their parents are away.

"Jake wants to be the national head of the smoke jumpers and so he trains hard and keeps his lodge clean. But when the kids come they get into a lot of mischief! Will Jake be able to become the national captain while taking care of the kids? And what will happen to them? Watch the movie to find out!

Mayhem ensues when the giant Jenga comes out! (Doane Gregory)

"I really enjoyed this movie overall — the characters, the story, and the hilarious action. I liked it when the smoke jumpers watch My Little Pony. I also liked it when the little boy sneaks into the smoke jumpers garage and causes A LOT of trouble by making bubbles.

"This movie makes you laugh but also has some meaningful parts. The only thing I didn’t like was when the kids really misbehaved and sometimes went a little bit too far but at the end of the movie we understand why. I would give this movie a 4.5 out of 5 stars."

Thanks, Ryan!

  1. It was funny when the little girl farted. It was funny when the little girl made the dog sit. It is funny when John Cena gets hurt in the burning house. It is funny when the fire hose is going splash. The movie Playing with Fire is funny.
