EXCLUSIVE: Parks and Recreation stars Adam Scott and Amy Poehler share the big screen with an all-star roster in the divorce comedy A.C.O.D., making its debut on Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand January 14, 2014 (and available on Digital January 3) from Paramount Home Media Distribution, and we have an exclusive first look at the A.C.O.D. DVD cover -- plus a funny clip from the film!
First off, A.C.O.D. stands for Adult Children of Divorce. The film follows Scott's character, Carter, a successful and well-adjusted adult as he attempts to reunite his bitterly divorced parents (acrimoniously played by Richard Jenkins and Catherine O'Hara in spot-on performances) for the sake of his younger brother's (Clark Duke) somewhat abrupt wedding plans. Despite having a solid relationship with his supportive girlfriend (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), Carter finds distraction in another woman (Jessica Alba) and the chaos of the whole situation threatens to derail his sanity.
Poehler plays the young wife of Carter's father who is pretty much the same age as him, and Jane Lynch adds additional comic relief as a therapist who uses Carter's case as fodder for her books. The film is directed by Stuart Zicherman (ABC's Six Degrees) and co-written by Zicherman and Modern Family producer/writer Ben Karlin.
The A.C.O.D. Blu-ray includes access to a digital copy of the film as well as the following special features: Amy Poehler Outtakes; Cast & Crew Discussion; and fun Public Service Announcements: Coping with A.C.O.D.; Be Proud to be an A.C.O.D.; Have You Seen a Shaman?; Are You Awesome?; Commitment-Phobic?; and What Does A.C.O.D. Stand For?
