Safe Men | 1998 | R | - 2.3.9

In this comedy, a mob boss forces struggling musicians Sam Rockwell and Steve Zahn to crack safes. Also with Mark Ruffalo, Josh Pais, Paul Giamatti, Michael Lerner, Harvey Fierstein, Christina Kirk and Michael Schmidt. [1:29]

SEX/NUDITY 2 - Sexual innuendo (including a reference to prostitution). A man and woman kiss in one scene. We briefly see two men in their underwear and a woman in a short robe.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - Someone is punched in the face and another is elbowed in the stomach. Two people punch each other's arms several times, two people tackle a man and someone pushes two people's heads together and threatens them. To "psych-up," two people shove each other and one slaps the other's forehead. A person is thrown against a wall a few times during what looks like a wrestling match. It's implied that someone knocks out two others with a crowbar; we later see them bound face to face with tape. Several verbal death threats. Off-screen, someone apparently bursts into flames (the scene is filmed as comical rather than violent).

LANGUAGE 9 - Nearly 40 F-words, a lot of anatomical references (including one clinical reference), scatological references and insults, and some mild obscenities.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
