Belly Laughs for Playing With Fire

Need a good laugh this weekend? Pop in with the kids to see Playing with Fire. We were belly laughing all the way out the door. At some points, I was laughing so hard I was crying.

Playing with Fire is a slapstick comedy starring John Cena, who plays everything so serious, it actually comes off as comedic. He is joined by Keegan-Michael Key, John Leguizamo, and Tyler Mane as smokejumpers. Leguizamo and Key steal the show with laughs. They were given freedom to pull out all the laughs and mold their characters for this movie, and they do it in an over the top way.

The team rescues a group of rambunctious kids that throw a kink in Jake Carson’s perfect order outpost. Ridiculous antics take place, and we all get a wonderful happy ending.

You’ll also get the full joy of watching the sweetest little girl, Finley Rose Slater, in her break out role. This little one is a firecracker that knows just how to steal the scene. Her parts with the dog are some of my favorite.

Make sure you stick around for the end credits to check out all the bloopers from full improv sessions.

Playing with Fire is in theaters on November 8th, 2019.
