This is a semi-autobiographical film loosely based on co-writer/director Stuart Zicherman's own experience as an Adult Child of Divorce (A.C.O.D.), one who also helped soothe the conflict between his divorced parents when his sibling got married. See more »
The "knock-off Eames chair" in Dr. Judith's office is not based on any design by mid-century designers Charles and Ray Eames. The chair is a chaise lounge designed by famed modernist architect Charles-Édouard Jeanneret-Gris, commonly known by his nickname "Le Corbusier". The design pre-dates most of the Eames' designs by several decades. See more »

I was flicking through the menu for movies last night and came across A.C.O.D. I'm glad that I did. I wasn't expecting much since I had never heard of it. My preference is action and some comedies so this did not appear to be my normal type of movie and I had my finger on the remote ready to change it. Before I knew it, I got caught up in the movie and when it was over, I can honestly say that I had a few laughs and enjoyed the storyline. Jane Lynch is 'echoing' herself by listening to people on couches and she is great at it. All actors were good and if you want to watch a movie that has gravity with some comedy, then go for it.
