The New York Times
The movie's warmth, and Mr. Gilliam's sober, likable performance sustain it through its ragged stretches and amateurish lapses. Full Review
David Ehrenstein
New Times (L.A.)
For those partial to sublimely happy endings there won't be a peep of complaint. Only us recalcitrant souls will be left wishing Punks had just a tad more spunk. Full Review
Dennis Harvey
Slick, ingratiating and high-spirited enough to win over gay men of all colors. Full Review
Elizabeth Weitzman
New York Daily News
At its best when it embraces its true identity, as frivolous fun. Full Review
Ernest Hardy
L.A. Weekly
For a film purporting to tell it like it is for black gay men, race is the most poorly handled aspect in Punk's equation; it's almost as if it had no relevance. That might have flown if its most telling moment didn't suggest otherwise. Full Review
