A.C.O.D. is an acronym for Adult Children Of Divorce. I suppose that means that I am an A.C.O.D., just like Carter (Adam Scott).
Carter has a younger brother (Clark Duke) that has decided to marry his girlfriend of 4 whole months. Carter’s parents, Hugh (Richard Jenkins) and Melissa (Catherine O’Hara), still fight whenever they have to interact with each other. Hugh has since married Sondra (Amy Poehler). Carter isn’t coping well, so he revisits his childhood psychologist (Jane Lynch), only to find out that he was part of a study concerning children of divorce. He was in a book!
Then comes fellow child of divorce Michelle (Jessica Alba), with her allure of some kind, causing Carter to question his relationship with girlfriend Lauren (Mary Elizabeth Winstead). It’s existential, twee, and highly inoffensive-looking, so enjoy the trailer, won’t we?
Let’s get real: Jessica Alba over Mary Elizabeth Winstead? SHENANIGANS.
