Playing with Fire DVD and Blu ray

Wrestler-turned-actor John Cena headlines this fun, family-friendly action comedy as Superintendent Jake Carson, the head of a team of smoke jumpers. When they rescue three siblings from a burning cabin, they find that returning them to their parents is harder than expected, and end up sheltering them at the station until things shake out.

Naturally, when you have a princess-loving toddler, an inquisitive kid, and a sullen teenage girl together in a he-man cave like their outpost, conflict is bound to arise, slapstick will occur naturally, and unexpected (Editor's note: they were totally expected) bonds will be formed.

Joining Cena are Brianna Hildebrand, Keegan-Michael Key, John Leguizamo, and Tyler Mane, with appearances by Dennis Haysbert as Carson's superior officer and  Judy Greer as the unlikely (Editor's note: totally likely) love interest.

PLAYING WITH FIRE was made for popcorn and family night. It's silly in all the right ways, and full of laughs. If you're on that hunt for something you can watch with your kids, this one is a safe bet.
