Terrific entertainment, full of wit and energy, alternately hilarious and serious -- and very sexy.

New York Post
Lively, well-acted and directed with assurance.
70
The movie's warmth, and Mr. Gilliam's sober, likable performance sustain it through its ragged stretches and amateurish lapses.
70
Variety
Slick, ingratiating and high-spirited enough to win over gay men of all colors.

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.
60
Thanks to an uninhibited screenplay and the easy, unforced chemistry of its ensemble cast, Punks is mostly good, snappy fun.
50
New York Daily News
At its best when it embraces its true identity, as frivolous fun.
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.
40
Energetic and ambitious, and its likeable cast marks a welcome return of non-white faces to the center of a gay-themed film.
40
Austin Chronicle
Never mind the fact that romantic comedies about gay African-American and Latino men aren't exactly plentiful, let alone ones this good-natured.
