Editorial Reviews

A.C.O.D. follows Carter (Adam Scott), a seemingly well-adjusted Adult Child of Divorce. Having survived the madness of his parents (Richard Jenkins and Catherine O'Hara) divorce, Carter now has a successful career and supportive girlfriend (Mary Elizabeth Winstead). But when his younger brother (Clark Duke) gets engaged, Carter is forced to reunite his bitterly divorced parents and their new spouses (Amy Poehler and Ken Howard) for the wedding, causing the chaos of his childhood to return including his wacky therapist (Jane Lynch).

Customer Reviews

There is some very funny moments in this but hard to make that plot hilarious.
Tony Heck
The impact on their lives ranged from folks who'd replicated their parents divorce--some twice over, and others who swore they would NEVER consider marriage.
Craig Haynes
Jessica Alba disappears halfway through the movie, and the outcome can be seen a mile away.

"A.C.O.D." (2013 release; 90 min.) brings the story of Carter (played by Adam Scott) and his dysfunctional family. As the movie opens, we see 8 mm footage of Carter's 9th birthday party at the family's lakeside summer house, where his mom and dad are screaming at each other at the top of their lungs. (We later learn that was the last time Carter went to the lake house.) In a cleaver montage, we see the family tree of Carter's mom and dad's subsequent marriages (in plural, indeed), including his dad's current wife (played by Amy Poehler). We then come back to the present day, some 20 years later. Carter's younger brother Duke plans to get married, and Duke would love for his parents, who haven't spoken for 20 years, to be there. Carter tries to figure out a way. Meanwhile, Carter is dealing with his own love life, including hid longtime girlfriend Lauren (played by Mary Elizabeth Winstead) who is getting tired of waiting for Carter to pose pop the big question. To deal with all the pressure, Carter looks up Dr. Judith (played by Jane Lynch), who is not really a doctor but does talk with patients about divorce issues. She wrote a book 20 years ago (called "Children of Divorce") about Carter and other kids like him. Dr. Judith now hatches the idea of writing a sequel called "Adult Children of Divorce"). It is in that context that Carter gets to know fellow A.C.O.D. Michelle (played by Jessica Alba). To tell you more would ruin your viewing experience, you'll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.

Couple of comments: this movie is billed as a comedy, and indeed the trailer I had seen of this movie seemed to indicate this was going to be a laugh-out-loud movie about divorce and its long-term effects.

This is a good story with some real truth for reflection. The all-star cast (with the exception of the younger brother Trey played by Clark Duke-- very talented, but he didn't ring true for me in this role) is superb. I've seen Adam in many roles and he is always very effective and consistent, same is true for Jane Lynch, Richard Jenkins and Catherine O'Hara--hilariously funny. Though handled in an obviously comedic manner (some might classify this as a bit of a romp--but on the dark side), the core of the story is quite serious. There were one-liners that summed-up this seriousness like, "this generation of A.C.O.D. individuals is perhaps the most un-parented of any." Some might conclude that given the fact that many, if not most "parents" do not know what they're doing, the fact that they haven't inflicted themselves on their offspring, may be a very good thing. In this film (as in real life), nothing could be further from the truth. Parents have (consciously and unconsciously) passed-on their dysfunction (passed down to them) almost genetically. Children end-up, in many cases, replicating the same mistakes of their parents. Why is that? Part lack of awareness, part DNA, part cultural, et al; it is, as they say, complicated. But for sure, children of divorced parents have challenges. Are these challenges any greater or lesser than children who grow-up with both parents loving and validating each other and them also, maybe. Regardless of our familial upbringing, challenges in relationships is part of the human condition. The hope is that with films such as this, awareness will be raised. If we know and are aware of (e.g.Read more ›

A.C.O.D is quite funny, though I wouldn't call it a comedy, just like I wouldn't call my witty friend a comedienne. It is not a heavy drama; it has just enough shenanigans, just enough bitterness, just enough hope, just enough warmth-- even the unlikable characters are likeable enough.

The film considers the bigger question of what divorce does to a generation, although the only character who verbalises that question is the kooky "therapist" who tells our main character that he's "part of the least parented generation, ever." In the end credits, the camera turns on the film crew and asks about their experiences. Just like the child of a messy adult can grow up to be untidy, or compulsively neat, or neutral, the film shows us how A.C.O.D repeatedly plunge, or swear off, or slide into marriage. But let's not forget that a child of a compulsively neat adult can grow up to be similar or grow up to be slovenly, so we might also consider what marriage does to a generation.

A.C.O.D. is less about divorce and more about how one child-adult was-is affected by it. It is funny how self-professed well-adjusted adults are sometimes the ones most affected by their childhood drama.

It is a pleasant, light watch.

If you're a fan of Adam Scott's work on Parks and Recreation, you'll enjoy this movie. It covers serious topics in a lighthearted way, and is more memorable than most romantic comedies. It won't have you rolling on the floor laughing, but it's funny in spots.

"Them together is bad for everyone, especially me." Carter (Scott) has settled into his life as an Adult Child Of Divorce. He has a girlfriend he likes and a restaurant he owns. When his brother Trey (Duke) informs him of his engagement things begin to fall apart for Carter. First he has to try and get his parents to talk to each other so the wedding won't be ruined. Then he must keep them from getting back together for his sake. Going in with that cast I was expecting a hilarious comedy that I would be laughing at the whole time. While this was a good movie and I did like it it wasn't nearly as funny as I was expecting. There are some funny parts in this but it wasn't the laugh riot I was expecting. This is more about the selfishness of one person and how he messes with everyone's life to make him more comfortable. There is some very funny moments in this but hard to make that plot hilarious. Again though this is a good movie and worth seeing but do not expect the laugh-out-loud comedy I did. Overall, good and worth seeing but not super funny. I give it a B.
