It Hit My Funny Bone
Not quite sure why all the negativity on this light-hearted, kid-friendly movie. I sure hope Americans aren't losing their sense of humor in all this political discourse constantly buzzing around us. I found Fire to be a thoroughly enjoyable 90-minute romp through the look of single men dealing with kids who have been caught in tragic circumstances. John Cena's portrayal of a bumbling lover/father figure was humorously delivered despite his hulking frame overpowering the physicality of all those around him. He's surrounded by an equally delightful crew, with special kiddos to Keegan-Michael Key, whose appearance in every frame elicited at least a chuckle from the audience.
Judging from the kids in the seats, Fire appeared to entertain everyone in the house. It's refreshing to see a film with not one swear word and non-adult over the top mature situations, save for two instances (there must be a Hollywood requirement that each movie contain at least two poopy scenes). Do yourself a favor and ignore the snobbish critics and go see this delightful comedy.
