    Critical response

    Diary ng Panget received mix to negative reviews from critics.

    Zig Marasigan of Rappler states that Diary ng Panget provides very little insight on the modern day troubles of a young adult. "It succeeds in bringing together a particularly charming cast with relative newcomer Nadine Lustre leading the charge. Director Andoy Ranay does well to draw an entertaining amount of chemistry between his 4 actors, but unfortunately fails to keep the story, as well as its characters, from breaking out."

    Philbert Ortiz-Dy of Click the City gave a negative review in the film, stating that "[t]he simplicity of the story is further undermined by the confusing direction. The film seems to struggle with staging a lot of scenes, the punchlines lost in the odd rhythms of the filmmaking." He also stated that "[t]he direction really fails the cast of young actors, who are acting their hearts out [...] Diary ng Panget is squandered by the subpar direction. The looseness of the narrative might have even been an asset if the direction was more inclined to make bolder or more well thought-out choices about how it presented the story."

    Diary ng Panget gained positive reviews from Monique Elmerose Ferrer a jeje rep with a score of 5/5 stating "If the film was to generate the sweet punch of lines for love and affection among teens, then the film has made its way to execute its theme."

    Box office

    According to the film's distributor, the film gathered PHP 12—15 million on its first day of showing. The film grossed PHP 61,324,157 on its first five days of showing according to Box Office Mojo. The movie ran for 5 weeks and by the final week of run, Box Office Mojo reported a total gross of PHP 119,534,657 (or estimated PHP 120 million) as the final box office result of the film, receiving the 9th place in the top ten highest grossing Filipino films of 2014.
