Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Julien Hernandez's micro-budgeted, gay-themed vanity project Sex, Politics & Cocktails gives all three a bad name."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"Comparing Sex to a student film is an insult to the American education system; even film students can make title cards without typos."
‑ Matt Singer, Village Voice
"We've seen this before. A lot."
‑ Don Willmott,
"A jumpy and occasionally unfocused feature made likable by a charismatic lead."
‑ Jon Popick, Planet Sick-Boy
"Enthusiastic performances help, but without a logical script or confident direction, the fizz very quickly goes flat."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"This peculiar little comedy, shot on digital video, gets points for editorial pizzazz, but earns a big zero for content."
‑ Chuck Wilson, L.A. Weekly
"It treads such well-worn ground that you can't help but want a little more substance."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Structurally, Sex, Politics and Cocktails is wildly, almost frantically inventive ... But no amount of directorial trickery can mask the essential vacuousness of the story and its characters."
‑ Dana Stevens, New York Times
"Utterly inept."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"Hernandez seems not to realize that a movie is supposed to sum to something."
‑ Kim Williamson, Boxoffice Magazine
