Glenn Garvin of the Miami Herald was only one of a few who gave a positive Metacritic review, saying "Guys With Kids is a perfect confection of witty dialogue and slapstick action." Matt Zoller Seitz of New York Magazine stated "I expected to hate Guys With Kids... My animosity faded after about five minutes, when it became clear that the show wasn't terribly interested in the kids." Diane Wertz of Newsday gave it a D and stated "Nothing to see here. Move on." Matt Rouse of TV Guide wrote, "The seasons most depressingly generic and retro sitcom, so squishy and lacking in edge it might as well been written in nerf".
