Goofs

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 »

Enjoyable but inessential
22 May 2014 | by (Lincolnshire, UK) – See all my reviews

A.C.O.D. is at times too amiable and meandering for its own good, but it gets by on a decent number of laughs and a strong cast. I kept waiting for things to escalate but it never quite happened despite the way the characters treat each other. I can't say it was a disappointment as I wasn't really expecting anything from it, but I suppose I just wanted it to be a bit... more.

Director Stuart Zicherman has assembled a cast including such reliably funny actors as Adam Scott, Catherine O'Hara, Jane Lynch and Amy Poehler, and he's co-written (with Ben Karlin) a film that is, to be fair, consistently laugh out loud funny. It's engaging enough, and it ends on a perfect note. I just can't get excited about it.
