A.C.O.D. (2013)



Critic Consensus: Despite its impressive cast and some sharp observations, A.C.O.D. is neither funny enough nor poignant enough to work as a potent comedy or incisive satire.

Watching Jenkins and O'Hara go at it (in more ways than one) is especially terrific fun.

October 18, 2013 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Promising premise goes nowhere.

October 15, 2013 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

The film is too broad to be discerning, but there are a few laughs here and there, thanks to a solid comedic ensemble.

"A.C.O.D." may leave a slightly sour aftertaste. As a look at the state of modern monogamy - or at least our enduring if misguided faith in it - it's refreshingly acerbic.

October 10, 2013 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Not only is the movie just so-so, but the parts themselves aren't much.

October 10, 2013 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Just hearing brilliant actors like Richard Jenkins and Catherine O'Hara at each other's throats or watching remarkably likable stars like Adam Scott and Mary Elizabeth Winstead figure out their relationship has enough charm.

Audience Reviews for A.C.O.D.


I didn't watch the whole thing; I skimmed it for the Amy Poehler, Catherine O'Hara and Jane Lynch bits. Didn't care about the main character, but the aforementioned ladies pulled off some cool characters. Something about this just missed the mark, and it's hard to discern what. Maybe the stakes weren't really high enough and the family not dysfunctional enough.

He's about to ruin a perfectly good divorce. Good movie! I went into this film with an open mind. I enjoyed the film as both a comedy and a drama. In this film, you see revealed some painful truths about human nature and complex family relationships--always with humor and compassion. A.C.O.D. follows a seemingly well-adjusted Adult Child of Divorce (Adam Scott) who is forced to revisit the chaos of his parents' (Catherine O'Hara and Richard Jenkins) bitter divorce all over again after his younger brother (Clark Duke) decides to get married.
