is a 1995 comedy feature film written and directed by A. Dean Bell. It stars Josh Mosby, Mary McCormack, Robert Mitchum, Shelley Winters, Telly Savalas (in his final role), and Kathy Ireland.

The film is a spoof of Backdraft, centered around a brother-and-sister pair of firefighters who battle arson and corruption in New York City. It features many "Naked Gun"-style jokes and references to the pop culture phenomena of the time, such as Disney's Aladdin and the Sylvester Stallone film Cliffhanger.

Backfire! was shown on USA Up All Night.

MST3K Connection

  • Backfire! references MST3K in a scene in which an attractive woman is lighting candles and getting into a bubble bath. The silhouette of a row of theater seats, a human and two robotic forms appears on the screen while the silhouetted figures (actors unknown) make jokes. They are then blown off the screen by an explosion.
