Punching Henry

Punching Henry ★★★½

If you're not watching Henry Phillips' YouTube series Henry's Kitchen, you're doing yourselves a disservice. His deadpan, self-deprecating humor and gravelly voice are a great combo and it carries over into this film. Following the underseen Punching the Clown, this sequel dishes a more of the same with better production value: Henry Phillips playing a fictionalized version of himself, a sad sack with bad luck trying to land a TV deal. It's a thin narrative, mostly just vignettes loosely strung together. And while the laughs aren't robust, there's a lot of heart and Phillips is a joy to watch.

I mean, just look at this: Henry's Kitchen 8 - Family Style Baked Spaghetti
