Critic Reviews of "Punching Henry"New York ObserverFebruary 28, 2017
The comedy in the film is biting and acerbic and sharply drawn from real life.VarietyFebruary 24, 2017
Sharply observed and understatedly amusing ...New York TimesFebruary 23, 2017
Mr. Phillips's self-deprecating humor is amusing but not funny enough to give him the edge he needs to rise up and conquer.Los Angeles TimesFebruary 23, 2017
The knowing satire "Punching Henry" may not amount to a lot in the end, but getting there is lots of fun.San Francisco ChronicleFebruary 22, 2017
It's the kind of observational humor that instills a knowing chuckle and nod of the head, as opposed to an all-out chortle.Village VoiceFebruary 22, 2017
Well observed and sometimes hilarious ...Common Sense MediaMarch 07, 2017
Glum but smart comedy has some mature material.Under the RadarFebruary 28, 2017
There's an endearing weariness to Phillips' persona. He's about as close to a punching bag as a person can get for much of the film.Cinemalogue.comFebruary 24, 2017
The result is endearing but also an incisive look at redemption and the fringes of fame.SF WeeklyFebruary 23, 2017
Punching Henry features a fantastic supporting cast of comedians... and Phillips' low-key yet undeniable charisma keeps it from landing squarely in the Sad Bastard genre it otherwise circles, as does the fact that it's genuinely funny.Movie NationFebruary 19, 2017
Still hapless, still deadpan, still cute...But if you saw "Punching the Clown" there's no compelling reason to see its sequel.
