The original plan was to release the film in theaters, but the film got only limited distribution as Miramax found the film not "commercial" enough. Daddy and Them opened to positive reviews, with many critics praising the film's southern humour, Thornton's work as a writer/director, and the performances of the entire cast. It currently holds an 83% rating on the review site Rotten Tomatoes.
