  • Funny but less successful as comedy than as a cry of you-screwed-us-up solidarity. show more

  • A.C.O.D. proves to be both a solid debut for Zicherman and a worthy vehicle for Scott and company, one that provides plenty of awkward laughs and generally gives the American farce a good name again. show more

  • A.C.O.D. is a sharp, dark-ish character comedy, settling for a dry tolerance in its point of view that is very appealing and even admirable. show more

    This was a much better movie than the critic reviews indicate. The dialog was clever compared to most of the mindless comedies in theaters, and the script balanced comedy with the more serious nature of problems of children who experience divorce. The cast, acting and timing was excellent.
