Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"...it's difficult not to ultimately be won over by the uniformly superb performances and Hamburg's emphasis on thoroughly strange bits of comedy."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Safe Men frequently excels in its little touches while failing in the long run to generate much excitement."
‑ Bruce Feld, Film Journal International
"Technically raw and narratively bumpy, this high-concept comedy has all the merits and weaknesses of an amateurish indie. Illustrious cast, headed by Sam Rockwell, Steve Zahn, Michael Lerner, and Harvey Fierstein, does its best but it ain't enough."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Novel and vivaciously performed."
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
