Stephen Romei The Australian There is an OK movie trapped in here. It needs someone to helicopter in and lift it out. Rated: 2.5/5 Dec 30, 2019 Full Review Wendy Ide Observer (UK) It turns out that sluggishly edited shots of big men pushing trolleys and buying plush toys is not, in fact, an adequate replacement for writing some funny lines. Rated: 1/5 Dec 29, 2019 Full Review Clarisse Loughrey Independent (UK) The cast are so willing to put their egos aside -- like a children's party clown on their last resort -- that it's easy to be won over by all the goodwill on show. Rated: 3/5 Dec 27, 2019 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews ...periodically watchable yet predominantly forgettable... Rated: 2/4 May 19, 2024 Full Review M.N. Miller Ready Steady Cut Playing With Fire is relatively inoffensive, but this four-men-and-three-babies spin borders on tedious. Rated: 1.5/5 Aug 22, 2022 Full Review Hosea Rupprecht Pauline Center for Media Studies Playing with Fire isn't a great movie but it's good, clean fun. Aug 12, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews
