Playing with Fire
When a straight-laced fire superintendent and his elite team of expert fire-fighters rescue of three siblings from the path of an encroaching wildfire, they quickly realize that no amount of training could prepare them for their most challenging job yet - babysitters. Unable to locate the children’s parents, the fire-fighters have their lives, jobs and even their fire depot turned upside down and quickly learn that kids - much like fires - are wild and unpredictable.

What the Critics say

Ilan Preskovsky quote iconPlaying With Fire at least worked enough for its target audience to keep pretty much all the children in the audience still throughout.

Leon van Nierop quote iconDit is ‘n slapstickkomedie waar niemand ooit werklik in die gevaar is nie. Jy kan net agteroorsit met koeldrank en springmiemielies, en jou oorgee aan gesinsvermaak. PAYING WITH FIRE is erg gemiddeld.
