Critic Reviews for Punching Henry

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (7)

Sympathy is a dollar that can only be stretched so far, and it gives out halfway through the movie.

December 8, 2017 | Rating: 3/10 | Full Review…

The comedy in the film is biting and acerbic and sharply drawn from real life.

Sharply observed and understatedly amusing ...

Top Critic

Mr. Phillips's self-deprecating humor is amusing but not funny enough to give him the edge he needs to rise up and conquer.

February 23, 2017 | Full Review…

The knowing satire "Punching Henry" may not amount to a lot in the end, but getting there is lots of fun.

February 23, 2017 | Full Review…

It's the kind of observational humor that instills a knowing chuckle and nod of the head, as opposed to an all-out chortle.
