Carter is a seemingly well-adjusted Adult Child of Divorce who survived the madness of his parents’ acrimonious separation as a child. He has a successful career and a supportive longtime girlfriend. However, his life gets turned upside down when Carter’s younger brother Trey gets engaged and wants him to bring their bitterly divorced parents together, along with their new spouses, for the wedding. Since their folks have not spoken in nearly a decade, it will be a tall order to have them spend the day together without causing a scene and ruining the wedding. Seeking counsel from his childhood shrink, Carter discovers he was part of a divorce study and the chaos of his childhood returns forcing him to face his own unresolved issues, including his reluctance to get married.

The Blu-ray features hilarious faux public service announcements featuring cast members including “Coping with A.C.O.D.,” “Be Proud to be an A.C.O.D.” and more, plus outtakes with Amy Poehler and a cast and crew discussion about the film. The DVD includes the feature film.
