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

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

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.
