EVERYTHING MUST GO was well-received with critics. 94 of the 126 reviews on Rotten Tomatoes were positive, giving it a 75% score (to be Fresh, or good, a movie needs to be over 60%). On Metacritic, it got a score of 65, which gave it the highest color (Green) and the category "Generally Positive Reviews." Of the reviews on Metacritic, 25 were positive, 12 were mixed, and none were outright negative.
A low-budget and little advertised indie picture like EVERYTHING MUST GO never had much of a chance at making tons of money. The movie made only about half of its budget back (mostly in the United States), though it never reached 250 theaters in its release (to count as a wide release, a film needs 600 or more theaters). It is believed that the filmmakers and distributors had always planned to make most of their money off DVD sales and rentals and ITune Downloads.
