Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"There's no way to prepare yourself for how awful "The Secret Lives of Dorks" is."
‑ Neil Genzlinger, New York Times
"The Jim Belushi of high-school romantic comedies: indifferent, kind of exhausted."
‑ Chris Packham, Village Voice
"It has a good heart and a good cast...But the movie is strenuously, exhaustingly unfunny, in a way that makes its phoniness harder to bear."
‑ Noel Murray, The Dissolve
"Johnny Severin and Nicholas David Brandt's ... clever and original script takes an unexpected turn at nearly every intersection, resulting in a funny and big-hearted coming-of-age romance."
‑ Annlee Ellingson, Los Angeles Times
"If you are ready for some laughs and almost inhumanly able to go along with the jokes, you will chuckle now and then in spite of yourself."
‑ Ron Wilkinson, It's Just Movies
"Tedious teen comedy hits every high school clique cliche."
‑ S. Jhoanna Robledo, Common Sense Media
"Replete with deadly fart jokes, projectile-vomit jokes, accidental-boob-grab jokes, and various other sources of alleged humor that real-life outcasts wouldn't voluntarily go anywhere near."
‑ Mike D'Angelo, AV Club
"Another entry in the "Why Should We Care?" department, The Secret Lives of Dorks feels like something we have all been through too many times before."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
