Hey Guys,

So Ive been trying to find movies that center around firefighting, no matter how real, fake, funny, or sad it may be. What are some good movies that are about what we all love so much... FIREFIGHTING!!!!

There is a little known movie that is out there, most of the movie is irrelevant as far as fire fighting is concerned but the first ten minutes of the film portrays the humorous side of fire fighting well. It is called Club Paradise and stars Robin Williams as a fire fighter who tires of firefighting and retires to a tropical island.
I might have missed a few

The following criteria qualify a film for inclusion on this list:

Primary plot of film regards firefighting or related fire/rescue service work in general.
Primary plot of the film involves firefighters or their personal lives as affected by their firefighting.
Noteworthy attention is given to firefighting activities.
This list includes documentaries.
