No the initials have nothing to do with cops, if that was your first thought (there is another one that is not very nice to the man from the force that might sound similar to some). No this was made up for the movie, though I guess there are quite a lot of people out there right now and I think there will be more in the future, who "lost" their parents, but more importantly their childhood.
One of the ways to deal with that is to make a comedy about it. So your parents divorced, does that mean it has an affect on you? Will you be another person because of that? Don't you already have that in you because you're a product of them being together (even if it was a short together)? There are a lot of questions and the movie tries its best to not slide into the obvious/cliché too often. Overall a nice movie, that has some bits of cast and crew talking about their parents after the credits start to roll (a bonus documentary?).
