In their review of Robot in the Family, critics Mick Martin and Marsha Porter wrote: "This cheap, sophomoric comedy about an ambulatory robot is one of the worst films we've ever seen".[4]

In March 2020, members of Red Letter Media described the film as "nonsensical" and "madness".[5][discuss] Red Letter Media member Rich Evans referred to the film as having "shortcircuited [his] brain every five seconds", and fellow members Jay Bauman and Mike Stoklasa respectively called it "a cacophony of noise" and "the antithesis of sense and logic".[5][discuss]
