Watching Jenkins and O'Hara go at it (in more ways than one) is especially terrific fun.

Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer, 2013-10-18

 

"A.C.O.D." may leave a slightly sour aftertaste. As a look at the state of modern monogamy - or at least our enduring if misguided faith in it - it's refreshingly acerbic.

Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post, 2013-10-10

 

The movie's messy, predictable, occasionally sitcom-shallow, but it's blessed with a cast of pro farceurs-including Amy Poehler and Jane Lynch-who put a spin on almost everything they do.

Ty Burr, Boston Globe, 2013-10-10

 

There's an undertone of score-settling to this not-so-romantic comedy, a bitterness that's sometimes unpleasant and sometimes wickedly funny.

Dana Stevens, Slate, 2013-10-04

 

Any movie starring these justly adored actors is likely to have its share of highlights and both are, indeed, delightful to watch.

Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News, 2013-10-03

 

A solid debut for Zicherman, and a worthy vehicle for Scott and company.

William Goss, Film.com, 2013-01-29

 

The tone is irresolute, as if Zicherman, a self-proclaimed A.C.O.D., hadn't fully resolved his feelings before spinning them into this lumpy comedic drama.

Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune, 2013-10-17

 

Promising premise goes nowhere.

Richard Roeper, Richard Roeper.com, 2013-10-15

 

The film is too broad to be discerning, but there are a few laughs here and there, thanks to a solid comedic ensemble.

Drew Hunt, Chicago Reader, 2013-10-11

 

Not only is the movie just so-so, but the parts themselves aren't much.

Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, 2013-10-10

 

A syndrome that may provide food for thought but not a lot of laughs.

John Anderson, Newsday, 2013-10-10

 

A.C.O.D. is reasonably pleasant and therapeutic and antiseptic and you just wish somebody would bring a chandelier down on somebody else at some point.

Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine/Vulture, 2013-10-04

 

[A] pointless, meaningless and witless comedy ...

Kyle Smith, New York Post, 2013-10-04

 

Mr. Zicherman needs a better crew, some time with the Criterion Collection and a fresher story, one perhaps not plucked from his own life.

Manohla Dargis, New York Times, 2013-10-03

 

Even with Adam Scott, Richard Jenkins, Catherine O'Hara, Jane Lynch and Amy Poehler on board, the results are regrettably forgettable.

Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times, 2013-10-03

 

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

Claudia Puig, USA Today, 2013-10-03

 

It's too broad to qualify as incisive, too mild to rise above the level of amusing.

A.A. Dowd, AV Club, 2013-10-03

 

This is the sort of movie you watch on a long flight because you like at least one of the cast members, and you laugh a few times, and then you forget that you ever saw it.

Alonso Duralde, TheWrap, 2013-10-02

 

Too sluggish for farce and too glib for a trenchant social satire, A.C.O.D. is several sessions short of a breakthrough.

Sam Adams, Time Out, 2013-10-01

 

Zicherman should have trusted his dark instincts; he did too much micromanaging of his own.

Sam Weisberg, Village Voice, 2013-10-01
