  1. Terrific entertainment, full of wit and energy, alternately hilarious and serious -- and very sexy.
  2. 75
    Lively, well-acted and directed with assurance.
  3. 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.
  4. 60
    Thanks to an uninhibited screenplay and the easy, unforced chemistry of its ensemble cast, Punks is mostly good, snappy fun.
  5. At its best when it embraces its true identity, as frivolous fun.
  6. 50
    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.
  7. Reviewed by: Ken Fox
    40
    Energetic and ambitious, and its likeable cast marks a welcome return of non-white faces to the center of a gay-themed film.
