      Dave P A quirky Farrelly Bros. comedy from the same year, There's Something About Mary, has a similar plot: hapless dodo-brains in love with a girl, a series of lies, misunderstandings, gross-out scenes, bizarre characters, etc. Safe Men is NOT Mary, but If you LOVED Mary, you'll probably enjoy Safe Men. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 09/25/22 Full Review Jeremy M So many stars in this movie early in their careers. John Hamburg wrote an amazing script and Sam Rockwell, Steve Zahn and Paul Giamatti deliver amazing performances. I first saw this movie nearly 25 years ago and still quote it frequently. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/27/22 Full Review Audience Member This is one of the first movies I think of when someone asks me for a movie recommendation. Pure delight! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Look at this cast! Most starting out in their careers and now all successful. Honestly some of the best dialogue front to back. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member One of the best movies I've ever seen, and I've seen like a lot of movies Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member super underrated. outstanding cast, great music....so funny. subtle humor that you miss on 1st watch. love this movie Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Owen Gleiberman Entertainment Weekly Rated: C Sep 7, 2011 Full Review Globe and Mail Rated: 2/4 Jul 12, 2002 Full Review Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times Safe Men whirls wildly from one bright idea to the next, trying to find a combo that will hold the movie together. No luck. Rated: 1/4 Jan 1, 2000 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Only a few of the sight gags pass the giggle test. Rated: B- Mar 11, 2017 Full Review Cole Smithey ColeSmithey.com Rated: 3/5 Oct 5, 2006 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews ...it's difficult not to ultimately be won over by the uniformly superb performances and Hamburg's emphasis on thoroughly strange bits of comedy.
