A.C.O.D. — Coming to More and More Movies


A.C.O.D. (Adult Children of Divorce)
This is the title of a comedy that Miramax just picked up from Daily Show head writer Ben Karlin (more success for Daily Show peeps!) and Six Degrees co-creator Stu Zicherman's. The story follows a man who "discovers he was unknowingly part of a study on divorced children. He's enlisted in a follow-up years later that wreaks new havoc on his family."

Using humor with a painful topic.
As The Hollywood Reporter points out, "Divorce is a traumatic experience for millions of families, and Miramax hopes to heal their pain through the gift of very twisted laughter." The screenwriters themselves joked about their script, "We're very glad to get the validation from Miramax, especially since we've been working on the script longer than any of our parents were married."

More and more stories like this?
Four Christmases brings to light the unique chaos that is the holiday season for some adult children of divorce, in a funny, lighthearted way. And in the recently released Rachel Getting Married, the adult children at the heart of the film (Rachel and Kym) confront some of the painful effects of their parents' marriage (a strained and distant relationship with their mother, a father who tries to fix everything all the time) as they work through other issues. The divorce rate has increased tremendously over the years, and it makes sense that we might see more movies addressing this experience as more and more children of divorce become adults.
