Reviewing for Ready Steady Cut, Amanda Guarragi wrote; “What this film shows is the constant strength that women have to harness when dealing with situations that really shouldn’t be happening to them because certain men act on impulses”.
Martin Cid Magazine wrote in its review; “Love, Sex and 30 Candles” promises to break away from tradition but continually reverts back to its more traditional side, particularly in its cinematography treatment.
