of Adult Children of Divorce

In the A.C.O.D. (Adult Children of Divorce) trailer Adam Scott gets to play a younger version of a Woody Allen character– the neurotic, hyperactive but intelligent social pariah who relies on frequent psychotherapy sessions to validate his fragile ego- with a twist.    He learns that his therapist (Jane Lynch) was  really a writer studying the effects of the A.C.O.D. , “the worst parental generation ever,” notes Lynch in the trailer.  Richard Jenkins and Catherine O’Hara, having a rollicking good time with their roles, play the parents, who are adults everywhere but in front of themselves and their children.  Jessica Alba, Amy Poehler, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Adam Pally and Clarke Duke play assorted wives, girlfriends and siblings.  Scott, a Parks and Recreation alumni, is getting his first big chance to be funny and a leading man on the big screen and he seems to be making the most of it.
