Critical reception has been mixed. DVD Talk gave a mixed review, writing " A breezy little dirty joke with just a smidgeon of dirt in it, Diary of a Bachelor could have been a lot more fun had it fully embraced its latent nudie cutie urges, or if it had concentrated on a more interesting bachelor here, played by the marvelous Joe Silver." TV Guide panned the film and gave it one star, stating "Told in a series of redundant flashbacks, the clumsy hand of producer/director Howard fails to keep interest for long. An unsympathetic character's life told in an uncaptivating style doesn't leave much room for praise." Variety also criticized the film as a "tame tale" with the byline "lack of names and generally pallid comedy make it candidate for second billing".
