Did You Know?

Trivia

The last name of Trey's finance is Kobayashi. This is the name for the Starfleet training exercise designed to test the character of cadets in the command track at Starfleet Academy. The Kobayashi Maru test was first depicted in the opening scene of the film Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and also appears in the 2009 film Star Trek. Screenwriter Jack B. Sowards is credited with inventing the test, naming it after a friend whose last name was Kobayashi.[1] The test's name is occasionally used among Star Trek fans or those familiar with the series to describe a no-win scenario, or a solution that involves redefining the problem and testing one's character.

(At around 29 minutes.) Trey and Kieko are going over the seating chart for their wedding. When Carter enters, Trey presents his idea about where to seat their parents. The tables that Trey pulls to the center of the chart are colored with white guests and black. After the brief conversation, Carter reaches across and separates the same two tables. This time, both tables from before are now the same and colored with only white guests. See more »

Clever, Smart Comedy
25 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A.C.O.D. is such a terrific film that it's difficult to believe that it's Zicherman's directorial debut. The screenplay, by Karlin and Zicherman, is remarkably clever and witty--combining humor with poignant insight to a very satisfying effect. Zicherman gets the pacing exactly right, showing faith in the intelligence of his audience by never belaboring a point. The characters are engaging and the acting is very great. If your an adult child of divorce or a divorced parent who worries about your children, you're likely to recognize something in this film. (When Carter goes through his parents' divorce papers, try to catch some of the petty, ridiculous allegations each makes.) In this film, you see revealed some painful truths about human nature and complex family relationships--always with humor and compassion. This is one of the best comedies I've seen.
