Both side to side and front to back are equally important to make the unit function correctly. It should be as close to vertical and horizontal as possible. I understood it was ok side to side and the OP was concerned with the vertical front to back.

X2 on the "wall" it's mounted in. I bet that if you put a level verticaly on the wall or cabinet next to the fridge, you will find it "out of plumb" ceiling to floor.

That being said, other than the door not staying open while trying to get the beer out, that small amount of "tilt" will have no ill affect on the fridge's operation. It would have to "tilt" more than 3-5 degrees side to side affect it's operation (learned this myself the hard way).
