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 »

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 »

A lesson in how to bury a movie by calling it something weird.
10 May 2015 | by See all my reviews

So first of all, it stands for Adult Child of Divorce and its the main reason no-one heard of this one. It sounds like a disorder, and people go see comedies that seem like a good time, not a lot of work.

Adam Scott's little bro wants to get married, and its his job to try and get his warring divorced parents to be in the same room together.

Jane Lynch, Mary Elisabeth Winstead, Amy Poehler, Katherine O'Hara and Richard Jenkins are all great. Funny likable cast, terrific situation comedy, its only about 20 minutes too long. Truly the only reason this got buried was that terrible unwieldy title.

6/10 outwore its welcome by the end, but still, underrated.
