The film received positive reviews from critics. In an article on Australian cinema for Cinematical.com, respected American film critic Jeffrey M. Anderson praised Everything Goes as "everything a great short film can be" and noted that "Kotatko makes spectacular use of light and space, using Carver's words when necessary and conjuring up wordless images just as potent".
