Ephemeral as a Snapchat message.
October 18, 2013
...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 ...
October 17, 2013
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.
October 15, 2013
Promising premise goes nowhere.

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.
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 10, 2013
Not only is the movie just so-so, but the parts themselves aren't much.
October 10, 2013
A syndrome that may provide food for thought but not a lot of laughs.
October 10, 2013
Doesn't rise much beyond the level of a sitcom that might find a home on premium cable rather than Fox.
October 8, 2013
The movie toggles unconvincingly between grounded emotions and sitcom shtick.
October 4, 2013
A.C.O.D. is reasonably pleasant and therapeutic and antiseptic and you just wish somebody would bring a chandelier down on somebody else at some point.

The screenplay simply doesn't provide enough reasons to feel bad for Adam Scott's Carter amid his personal crisis.
October 4, 2013
[A] pointless, meaningless and witless comedy ...
October 3, 2013
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.
October 3, 2013
Mr. Zicherman needs a better crew, some time with the Criterion Collection and a fresher story, one perhaps not plucked from his own life.
October 3, 2013
Even with Adam Scott, Richard Jenkins, Catherine O'Hara, Jane Lynch and Amy Poehler on board, the results are regrettably forgettable.
October 3, 2013
A spotty comedy with a great cast and a catchy title that falls apart in the final third.
