    Rotten Tomatoes, a review aggregator, reports that 60% of five surveyed critics gave the film a positive review; the average rating was 6.6/10. Fearnet called the film "a sweet little winner" with inexperienced but committed actors. Variety gave a mostly positive review, saying that although the performances were uneven overall, the movie was "surprisingly appealing" and was a "micro-budget horror-comedy tailor-made for teen geeks who are sufficiently self-aware to laugh at themselves". DVD Talk expressed admiration at what the then 17-year-old Hagins was able to do with the film and said that while the movie was "hit and miss throughout" it was "worth seeing for its heart and soul and creativity". Dread Central panned My Sucky Teen Romance overall, giving it two out of five blades and said that "While Hagins shows that she’s becoming more than capable behind the camera, she still needs a bit of work at honing her abilities as a screenwriter." Screen Daily wrote, "Hagins’ youth is obviously exploitable in publicity terms, but the film has winning qualities which would be impressive in any low-budget movie." In a mixed review, Pop Matters criticized the film's dialog but wrote that the film "has its moments" and is "admirably sincere".
