A grown man caught in the crossfire of his parents' 15-year divorce discovers he was unknowingly part of a study on divorced children and is enlisted in a follow-up years later, which wreaks new havoc on his family.
A.C.O.D. follows a seemingly well-adjusted Adult Child of Divorce (Adam Scott) who is forced to revisit the chaos of his parents' (Catherine O'Hara and Richard Jenkins) bitter divorce all over again after his younger brother (Clark Duke) decides to get married.Written by

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 »
(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 »

Think the reviews are unfair - it's a well made film, it's different and the cast are great.
No, it's not perfect. It's the not the best film ever made - but it is a good film, it's not the same story line that's been churned out a million and one times. Its definitely worth a watch, and the cast is great.
I love the multiple genres included in the film, it created a real life feel to it. Adam Scott is a great lead with a great cast around him. This is a great film to just chill out and watch without to much thinking that be enjoyed by all.
