    Good morning,

    I hear "se foutre en" used in expressions like "il se foutait en rogne" or "il se foutait en l'air"

    Is "se foutre en" generally used as a familliar synonym for "se mettre"? Or is it just limited to certain expressions?

    No, it is not always a familiar synonyme of se mettre. For instance, you can say "ils se foutent de la gueule du monde" which can means in a familiar way " they take people for fools"...
