Jessica Alba is cast alongside Parks and Recreation stars in the very funny trailer for A. C. O. D.

"If I ever see that woman again, I'm going to kick her in the balls."

JOE brings you the latest trailers in association with the good folk over at Magnet.

It’s safe to say we’re pretty excited about A. C. O. D. here at JOE.

The film’s title, which stands for “Adult Children Of Divorce” stars Adam Scott as Carter, a man who was unknowingly the subject of a study on the children of divorce when he was just a young whippersnapper. Years later, he’s asked to participate in a follow-up study, a request that forces him to confront his divorced parents, played by Richard Jenkins and Catherine O’Hara.

With Adam Scott and Richard Jenkins previously teaming up for Step-Brothers, this winning combination can only be a good thing. Especially if Jenkins will be delivering lines like “if I ever see that woman again, I’m going to kick her in the balls.” Ah, divorce.

The cast also includes Amy Poehler, Jessica Alba, Jane Lynch, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Clark Duke so it’s a pretty crackin’ comic line-up.

What we’re slightly disturbed by though is the fact that Scott and Poehler are now step-son and step-mom, when in reality (in TV land at least), they’re usually getting up close and personal in Parks and Rec.

This makes us feel weird.

As well as the excellent cast, A. C. O. D. is co-written by Ben Karlin, a brilliant writer who has previously been one of the creative geniuses behind The Daily Show With Jon Stewart, along with being one of the co-creators of The Colbert Report.

Basically, what we’re trying to say is that this film has the potential to be very, very, very funny. Here’s hoping…

A. C. O. D. is due to be released in 2014.

Make sure to have the best broadband in town before trying to find out any more about A. C. O. D. Thankfully, the lads over at Magnet will be able to sort you out with their fatpipe which has up to 70mb broadband speeds.
