Although it's not flawless, Jessica Alba's character is seemingly pointless and the script does tend to drag on at times, but overall, it's a very enjoyable film.

Ephemeral as a Snapchat message.

A decent script is brought to life because of the strong supporting players in this new comedy.

May be one of the grimmest movies you'll see this year.

...a busy movie for one running under 90 minutes, with people like Amy Poehler and Jessica Alba popping in with no-destination characters, and poor Mary Elizabeth Winstead wasted in the wings as Carter's patient girlfriend.

In spite of good intentions, A.C.O.D. fails to capitalize on its compelling 'Adult Children of Divorce' platform to present viewers with equally captivating insights.

It's often very funny, and tries to have some heart, too. But it doesn't straddle that line all too well ...

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

Has a few moments that shine, but the rest is shockingly leaden and clumsy, feeling around for a heart it hasn't earned and for laughs that seldom arrive.

N.O.

It's more a situation than a story, but a pretty funny situation.
October 15, 2013
Promising premise goes nowhere.

Hums along nicely as it diagnoses what Dr. Judith calls 'the least-parented, least-nurtured generation—ever.' It's funny without being broad, thanks to a fine ensemble...

I really wanted to like this film because its cast is generally terrific in everything they do , but only Richard Jenkins and Catherine O'Hara really stand out here. A near-miss and sadly blah comedy that should have been smarter.

It feels like an act of therapy rather than an organic story. Fortunately, the strong cast of comedy experts make it very funny.
October 11, 2013
The film is too broad to be discerning, but there are a few laughs here and there, thanks to a solid comedic ensemble.
October 11, 2013
There are a few moments of painful insight here that some may find uncomfortable, but the script by Modern Family writer Ben Karlin strives to keep things lighthearted. It makes for an uneven experience, but also an enjoyable one.

"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
Not only is the movie just so-so, but the parts themselves aren't much.
October 10, 2013
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.
