Ephemeral as a Snapchat message.

It's downright criminal that Zicherman had the cast he did, stacked with stars from Parks and Recreation, Best In Show, Step Brothers, The Office and Party Down, and yet the result is as flaccid and stale as this.

Zicherman should have trusted his dark instincts; he did too much micromanaging of his own.

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.

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

It's too broad to qualify as incisive, too mild to rise above the level of amusing.

October 1, 2013
Too sluggish for farce and too glib for a trenchant social satire, A.C.O.D. is several sessions short of a breakthrough.

Stu Zicherman's amusing but formulaic man-in-crisis comedy has neither a fully realised protagonist nor a clear message.

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.

This is the sort of movie you watch on a long flight because you like at least one of the cast members, and you laugh a few times, and then you forget that you ever saw it.

A.C.O.D.'s smooth establishment of its sharp, funny characters can't sustain the film's momentum.
October 4, 2013
The screenplay simply doesn't provide enough reasons to feel bad for Adam Scott's Carter amid his personal crisis.

It's neither consistently funny nor poignant enough to make the most of its impressive cast.

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

Mr. Zicherman needs a better crew, some time with the Criterion Collection and a fresher story, one perhaps not plucked from his own life.

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.

[A] pointless, meaningless and witless comedy ...

Carter's existential crisis simply isn't interesting enough to sustain the movie, even at a scant 87 minutes, no matter how likable the leading man.
