Critical reception for the film has been negative and the film holds a rating of 40% on Rotten Tomatoes, based on 5 reviews. David N. Butterworth heavily panned the film, as he felt that "Anyone who quickly denounced Madonna's "Swept Away" as being the worst film of 2002 clearly hadn't seen "13th Child."" Charles Tatum from eFilmCritic.com panned the film's script, and character development.
