A.C.O.D. (2013)

Director: Stu Zicherman

Starring: Adam Scott, Richard Jenkins, Catherine O'Hara, Amy Poehler, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Clark Duke

More info: IMDb

Plot: Carter has spent much of his life mediating fights between his acrimoniously divorced, ill-behaved mother and father and taking on the role of designated authority figure to his carefree younger brother, Trey. Inspired by Trey’s sudden engagement, Carter resolves to negotiate a truce between his parents, a process that nearly unhinges him. Adding insult to injury, a frantic sprint back to his childhood therapist, Dr. Judith, reveals he was a prime subject in her self-help book on the “least-parented, least-nurtured generation” ever. Dr. Judith may not be able to help him, but she’s delighted he’s come back and inspired a sequel.

My rating: 8/10

Will I watch it again?  Yes.

Fun-ny! Adam Scott does a fine job in the lead role and he is surrounded by a wonderful supporting cast.  Everyone, and I mean EVERYONE, of them gets a lot of laughs.  It was wild seeing Amy Poehler (who needs to have my babies, btw) be a bitch.  Richard Jenkins is hilarious and the ending is delightfully ambiguous.  This one will likely get picked up and into a theaters.  Go see it.  I loved it.
