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.

really pretty cute comedy and not too raunchy, although it has sexual jokes and comments throughout, not embarrassingly crude like most of the comedies today, and I'm no prude. Actually has a plot and some good acting in it, too.

"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.

A.C.O.D. (aka Adult Children of Divorce) is a decent little comedy that tries to become something more substantial but doesn't quite succeed. It's clear that the film wants to make a statement about the effects divorce has had on the modern generation. As the film itself tells us (via voiceover narration from Jane Lynch), we now live in a world where divorce is the norm for just about every other kid out there. "Without a clear example of a successful or stable relationship to examine from an early age, how are these kids supposed to develop successful relationships of their own when they're older?" the film ponders. Despite the fact that these questions are voiced, they're never really tackled or answered by the bulk of the movie in any substantial way. The general lack of conclusiveness on the subject is best summarized by the end credits montage, which features a host of average folks saying that they are (or are not) children of divorce, that they have (or haven't) had success with relationships and that they do (or don't) like the idea of marriage. In summary: relationships exist, and they may or may not turn out well.

While A.C.O.D. may not work particularly well as some sort of profound statement, it is a pleasant, mildly amusing self-contained tale about one man's problems. Adam Scott has more or less mastered the art of playing put-upon straight men at this point; throwing up his hands in exasperation while the world around him spins out of control. He's not the guy you turn to for killer one-liners, but he's a splendid choice when you need a bewildered double-take.
