Storyline

Just as Jeremy Jackson attempts to become the first male firewoman in New York, fires begin mysteriously erupting from toilets all over the City and Fire Marshal Marc Marshall is called in to investigate. From the start, Jeremy is heckled and sexually harassed by his tough as nails female cohorts including his instructor, the hard-boiled Lt. Shithouse. Jessica Luvintryst, Jeremy's old flame and the Mayor's very personal assistant, rekindles the fire in his eyes and between his thighs. Jeremy discovers trace jet fuel at the fire sites and soon becomes hot on the trail of The Most Evil Man and his diabolical scheme. In the tradition of Naked Gun, Backfire spoofs Backdraft.

Don't waste your time!
10 January 2007 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

I very wonder why some familiar stars have participated this lousy film. It is really a time waster!

Frankly I could not watch the film from the beginning to the end, but probably three-fourth. I think the problems of the film was mainly the director and the script writer could not develop the story from the theme--a man try to become a fireman in the world where only women can do. In spite of the story theme was odd, it could be developed in a very interesting way as long as the director can rationalise the story and made the gags in proper order. And if he could have managed the scenes presented in coherent manner.

Some scenes that should be aimed to make people laugh indeed worked controversially. For example, a group of people walked out form the limo should be a poor replicate from other film (the name I have forgotten). 'Copying' is not necessary bad but in this film, the director could not make the copying or mimicking with a new touch . I feel very sorry for the investors.
