Reception

The film has an 86% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Kate Erbland of IndieWire graded the film a B, writing "Although Bird’s issues are myriad and it would be easy for her to fall into a pattern of pitying herself, her unique mix of pluck and practicality make the character shine and keep the tone of 'Girl Flu' fizzy and light."

Jon Frosch of The Hollywood Reporter gave the film a positive review, calling it "warm and winning" and "a slight but distinctive coming-of-ager."

Bob Strauss of the Los Angeles Daily News also gave the film a positive review and wrote, "Girl Flu. is everything indie comedy should be and rarely is: fearless, committed to character and willing to not only get dirty but to stay that way."
