Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Frank, who has been told he should do talk radio, is a natural in front of a camera and microphone, and his ease comes across in Everly's film."
‑ Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
"Between skirmishes in the Capitol, we get a portrait of the congressman as an openly homosexual man, with Everly's agenda much more about Frank's sex life than his politics."
‑ John Anderson, Newsday
"Enjoyable for everyone except those who think Kenneth Starr investigation was actually fair or balanced."
‑ Jon Popick, Planet Sick-Boy
"Sure, it's in essence a love letter to Barney Frank, but from the looks of things, he seems to deserve it."
‑ Chris Barsanti, Filmcritic.com
"Disappointingly slapdash and spotty in its approach."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"Frank is a worthy subject, but this treatment amounts to not much more than a somewhat extraneous sidebar to last month's The Hunting of the President."
‑ Megan Lehmann, New York Post
"A fascinating, entertaining and well-assembled documentary."
‑ Shirley Sealy, Film Journal International
"Feisty, funny, and smart."
‑ David Sterritt, Christian Science Monitor
"There's nothing new here, but Frank provides a genial reminder that politics doesn't always have to take the low road."
‑ Jack Mathews, New York Daily News
"Frustrating lack of context leaves you wanting a lot more in the way of texture."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"It's a fascinating look at power, prejudice and the way politics is really played."
‑ , E! Online
"Terrifically entertaining documentary."
‑ Ken Fox, TV Guide's Movie Guide
