    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    That's a lot of talent and star power at play here, made all the more conspicuous in that they don't really get much to work with. Not only is the movie just so-so, but the parts themselves aren't much. show more

    Claudia Puig USA Today

    A spotty comedy with a great cast and a catchy title that falls apart in the final third. show more

    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    Scott, Winstead and Howard are charming, while Poehler, O’Hara and Jenkins have a grand time bickering. Since Zicherman doesn’t ask much of us in the first place, they make it easy enough to commit. show more

    John DeFore The Hollywood Reporter

    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

    Ty Burr Boston Globe

    Scott’s probably the perfect actor for this, since he’s too likably lightweight to suggest any emotion more crippling than exasperation. show more

    Roger Moore McClatchy-Tribune News Service

    A movie comedy that is funnier in performance than it ever was as a script. show more

    Richard Roeper Chicago Sun-Times

    Despite an excellent ensemble cast of comedic treasures as well as veterans of drama taking a walk down a lighter aisle, A.C.O.D (i.e. Adult Children of Divorce) delivers only a few sporadic chuckles amidst a slew of clunky scenes. show more

    Kyle Smith New York Post

    A contrived comedy that could have made an especially weak episode of “Everybody Loves Raymond.” 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.
