For the first time on DVD, from comic filmmaker John Hamburg (Meet the Parents, Zoolander, Along Came Polly, Meet the Fockers) comes this offbeat tale of inept lounge singers Sam (Sam Rockwell, Matchstick Men) and Eddie (Steve Zahn, Out of Sight), who find themselves breaking into the burglary biz when they're mistaken by a low-level mobster (Paul Giamatti, Sideways) for the best safecrackers in town.Now two guys who can't carry a tune are carrying off a series of hysterical heists in this comic gem that critics hailed as "the most original comedy of the year" (Newsday).
A great cast injects energy into Safe Men, an oddball cult comedy about two would-be musicians (Steve Zahn, Happy, Texas, and Sam Rockwell, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind) who get mistaken for master safecrackers by a second banana gangster (Paul Giamatti, Sideways). The plot revolves around the hapless pair being forced into a series of robberies, but really it's just an excuse for amusing scenes of men clumsily grappling with their emotions, struggling to express themselves, accepting loss, fighting to command respect, and much more. Writer/director John Hamburg went on to write the screenplays for Zoolander, Meet the Parents, and Along Came Polly, but Safe Men is both sweeter and subtler than those box office hits. Mark Ruffalo (You Can Count on Me), Michael Lerner (Barton Fink), Harvey Fierstein (Torch Song Trilogy), and Peter Dinklage (The Station Agent) round out the excellent cast, accompanied by Christina Kirk in her movie debut; she more than holds her own as a woman who's far more emotionally direct than any of the men around her. --Bret Fetzer

I purchased it because I like Sam Rockwell and it was only a few cents at least I didn't waste a lot of money
