A.C.O.D.s unite!

Adult children of divorce get a movie to relate to in the comedy A.C.O.D., the directorial debut of Stuart Zicherman that’s available on digital HD today and on Blu-ray and DVD Jan. 14.

The movie stars Adam Scott (Parks and Recreation) as Carter, a man who by all accounts has gotten over his parents splitting up as a kid. But old neuroses die hard when he’s forced to reunite his bickering divorced parents (Richard Jenkins and Catherine O’Hara) and their spouses for the wedding of his younger brother (Clark Duke).

The cast also includes Amy Poehler, Jessica Alba, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Jane Lynch as Carter’s eccentric childhood therapist.

The Blu-ray bonus features include outtakes featuring Poehler and a series of faux public-service announcements such as “Have You Seen a Shaman” and “Are You Awesome?”
