In his AVN review, Peter Warren wrote that Revenge of the Petites is "a charming throwback/homage to raunch-coms of the ’70s and ’80s like (most overtly) 'Revenge of the Nerds,' 'Animal House' and Fast Times at Ridgemont High. And with its abounding cast of hotties, all of whom get far wilder (not to mention nakeder) than anyone in those films ever contemplated, it's likely to pull in many a customer. [It's] a lot of infectious fun, from its almost unnervingly catchy retro theme song, to its genre-appropriate montages, to its occasionally sharp zingers about being height-challenged. ... What you've got is one of the absolute must-see adult motion pictures of 2012."
Earlier in the year, Revenge of the Petites was honored as Feature Movie of the Year at the 2012 Urban X Awards. The movie also received a 2012 Gold Kush award for Feature Film (XXX Category) from the Humboldt International/420 Awards.
