Roger Moore of Movie Nation gave the film a 1.5 out of 4 stars, describing it as "a rude, crude, cameo-happy sequel to “Hurricane Bianca,” with the same crazy eye makeup and the same stars as the first daft dirty dog of a gay rights goof."
As of February 2019, a third film titled Hurricane Bianca 3 is in the works and will include Sykes, Dratch and several Drag Race performers in its cast. Del Rio stated in an interview that the film would be set in Africa.
