Entertainment Weekly

By Owen Gleiberman
Adam Scott has a controlled, almost overly impeccable charisma. Handsome, with small precise facial features, he has a witty, hiply downcast delivery that, on screen, can make him seem like a unit unto himself.

By William Goss
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.

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.

The Playlist

By Kimber Myers
Comedy can succeed based on either its relatability or sheer absurdity, and A.C.O.D. favors the former approach, while not entirely forgoing the latter.

The Hollywood Reporter

By John DeFore
Funny but less successful as comedy than as a cry of you-screwed-us-up solidarity.

USA Today

By Claudia Puig
A spotty comedy with a great cast and a catchy title that falls apart in the final third.

Boston Globe

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

Village Voice

A.C.O.D. ultimately suffers from a rare affliction: an overkill of editing. Whole scenes—especially the farcical finale—peter out just at the simmering point.

Chicago Sun-Times

By Richard Roeper
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.

By Geoff Berkshire
The ensemble’s crack comic timing can only go so far to compensate for uneven scripting.
