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.
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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›

I love Adam Scott and this movie was definitely what I expected. But it's not within my top 10. Fun movie to watch with a glass of wine.Published 5 months ago by Amazon Customer
This movie doesn't have many jokes. It's purpose is unclear. If it has anything to say about divorce, it is not substantial.Published 7 months ago by baby nightsoil
I was looking for a more dramatic movie that wasn't so in-between as this one. Funny parts and still worth the buy, but the multiple plot holes and mediocre emotional value is what... Read morePublished 9 months ago by Syd
