Consensus: Despite its impressive cast and some sharp observations, A.C.O.D. is neither funny enough nor poignant enough to work as a potent comedy or incisive satire.

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

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.

"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.

A decent script is brought to life because of the strong supporting players in this new comedy.

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

May be one of the grimmest movies you'll see this year.

I really enjoyed this. It's rather televisual but it's surprisingly well written ably performed by a very likeable cast.
