An honest New York cop named Frank Serpico blows the whistle on rampant corruption in the force only to have his comrades turn against him.
Al Pacino considers this movie to be one of his greatest achievements as an actor.
When I come home, I want to come home to a clean house.
Laurie: Paco, don't take it out on me.
Frank Serpico: I'm not taking it out on you; I just don't wanna have to pick up *shit*!
Serpico is on a rooftop just before he is shot, and the World Trade Center Towers are visible in the background. Serpico was shot during a drug arrest on February 3, 1971. The second tower was completed in January, 1972.
There is one Australian VHS version released through RCA Columbia Pictures Hoyts Home Video in the 1980's which had all profanity overdubbed with tamer language, as well as some scenes of sexuality/nudity. Subsequent releases on DVD are uncensored.
