Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"...This slice-of-life picture has a loose, youthful energy recalling early Spike Lee that is entirely fitting for a country that is enjoying a cultural growth spurt."

"while the absence of AIDS or post-apartheid angst might make Bunny Chow a refreshing addition to the body of new South African cinema, it is still the kind of misfiring act that leaves you wanting to heckle rather than cheer."

‑ Jason Gorber, Film Scouts
"The trio of male leads must rank among the most odious protagonists in modern movie history, and the film finds itself with almost nothing to say about them beyond tepid indulgence."
‑ Danny Bangs, Little White Lies
