The Love Punch is a 2013 British comedy film written and directed by Joel Hopkins. It was screened in the Gala Presentation section at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival.[2]



The Love Punch has received negative reviews from critics, and currently holds a 26% rating on Rotten Tomatoes based on 50 reviews with the consensus: "In spite of a pair of extremely talented leads and a premise that should lend itself to entertaining action and comedy, The Love Punch manages to waste it all on a bungled attempt at classic caper cinema".
