Critical reception for 3 Geezers! has been overwhelmingly negative and the film currently holds a rating of 9 on Metacritic (based on 5 reviews). News outlets such as the Los Angeles Times and New York Times panned the film overall, with both reviewers criticizing the movie's humor as un-funny and the reviewer for the New York Times commented that "This film makes the dreadful TV show “Betty White’s Off Their Rockers” seem sophisticated." The Hollywood Reporter echoed these sentiments, stating that "Barely managing to fill its brief running time despite its surfeit of smuttily vulgar gags, 3 Geezers! proves a less than subtle argument for euthanasia." Slant Magazine gave a slightly more positive review, remarking that the film's approach was "a creative one that makes the material easier to swallow, but it doesn't change the fact that this is basically a single joke on repeat for a stretched-out 80 minutes, and whether it's funny or well told is eventually beside the point."
