Trivia

In a scene Adam Scott's and Amy Poehler's character get in a fight and Adam Scott's character says: "Maybe in another we would have been friends." This could be seen as a reference to the comedy series they've both starred in for years, Parks and Recreation, as a couple in love. See more »

Glad to have watched this movie
12 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

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.
