When you see Adam Scott and Amy Poehler together, it's not unusual to feel a warm happiness for the adorable couple the two play on "Parks and Recreation." In "A.C.O.D.," however, Poehler and Scott are far from the sweet lovebirds we know them as.
The new comedy from Stu Zicherman ("Elektra") stars Adam Scott as Carter, a grown man, or what Jane Lynch's Dr. Judith calls an Adult Child of Divorce (A.C.O.D.). When Carter discovers that as a kid he was a part of a study on children of divorced parents, Dr. Judith wants to enlist him in a follow up. Caught in the middle of his hilariously hateful parents (Catherine O'Hara and Richard Jenkins), Carter begins to question his life as his family drama brews further.
In this exclusive new clip, Scott's Carter offers to help out his step-mom, Poehler's Sondra, (yep, you read that right) but she's in no mood to be friendly. After some back and fourth bickering Carter sweetly suggests that maybe in a different situation they could've been friends, but Sondra's response is nothing but cold. While these two don't get along, we can still see a hint of Leslie and Ben love hidden somewhere in there.
Check out the exclusive clip above. "A.C.O.D." opens this weekend.
