    Academy Award-winning actress Diane Keaton stars with Mandy Moore, Lauren Graham and Piper Perabo in this heartwarming comedy about mothers, daughters and cutting the apron strings. When it comes to her three free-spirited daughters, Daphne (Keaton) is just your normal overprotective, overbearing, over-the-top mother. Worried that her youngest daughter, Millie (Moore), will end up alone, Daphne meddles in her daughter's love life until she ends up doing all the wrong things for all the right reasons...and all in the name of motherly love.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Very cute girlie movie....exactly as you would expect! August 29, 2007
    By MLRapp
    Format:DVD
    I waited untily my husband was away before I watched this movie, since I think this one is strictly for the ladies. It was a very cute "chick flick" that I found completely relatable and think it will be adored by girls/women with close relationships with their sisters and/or mothers. This is one product that is exactly as advertised...a sweet movie to cuddle up on the couch with - alone or with the ladies in your life...friends, sisters, mothers, daughters, etc.

    The acting wasn't anything to write home about, but I thought Mandy Moore was quite natural. I was a little disappointed in Diane Keaton's performance, since I have seen her act on a much higher caliber in other films, although she definitely reminded me of a few overbearing mothers I know (fortunately not my own), which made me laugh a lot!

    All in all, I would recommend it if you're in the mood for a sweet, cute movie. If you're interested in this genre, but want to be really touched or find a film that truly delivers, I HIGHLY recommend the following: The Holiday; The Family Stone; Prime; Love, Actually; Serendipity; Sweet Home Alabama; Imagine Me & You; Chasing Liberty; Failure to Launch; The American President and Catch & Release.

    I was looking for a Sunday afternoon movie that would make me smile. I found it.

    My disclaimer is this: I do not expect chic flicks/romantics comedies to be cohesive art films, to have memorable to stunning dialogue, or even a lot of ingenuity. I do not expect them to be realistic in the romance area. I only expect them to make me smile, to make me feel good, and to have some emotional strain that a viewer can relate to.

    BECAUSE I SAID SO did that for me. It made me laugh and smile, and even had me pointing my finger at the characters for "misbehaving." If you like romantic comedies, if you really enjoy a feel good movie, and can let go of any notion that it is supposed to be "realistic" or "artsy," I think you can enjoy this film. No it isn't an Oscar winner. But I miss most of those. They don't tend to make me feel like smiling and singing on a Sunday afternoon.

    Apparently "Because I Said So" is a romantic comedy starring Diane Keaton, but definitely it is not "Something's Gotta Give." Nancy Meyers knew what she was doing as the latter's director, who, despite rather predictable ending, provided constant laughs and interesting characters supported by the talented actors. Now "Because I Said So," directed by Michael "Hudson Hawk" Lehmann, gives us one of the most unfunny and annoying comedies of the year.

    Diane Keaton plays Daphne, an overprotective mother who, unnecessarily you'd think, worries about the future of her youngest daughter Milly played by Mandy Moore. The meddling mom sets up a date for Milly (without her knowing) with a boy by posting an ad on the net. The officious mother's "comic" turns are accompanied by her inability to handle her PC and her dog doing most embarrassing thing by her side.

    Here his film is not only unoriginal, unfunny and irritating, but impossible in more than one way. If your daughter is Mandy Moore, you don't need to "set up" a date. Guys would just keep coming to her, asking for a date. Yes, she sometimes laughs strangely and her mom calls it "a kiss of death," but I find it charming and I believe I'm not the only one to think so. After all, it's Mandy Moore.

    And even if you do seek the right person for your daughter and if you do it on the internet, the chances are you meet better candidates for her date than the stereotyped characters assorted here including the one on the short list played by Tom Everett Scott. OK, I know Michael Lehmann did "Heathers," refreshingly dark and original comedy, but that was about 18 years ago.

    But perhaps the biggest problem of the film is Diane Keaton herself, whose performance as loopy and overbearing mother failed to charm us.

    How can a movie get this many elements wrong? Diane Keaton overacts to a painful degree (we've seen her talent in other movies, so we know she is much more capable than this). The writers think that the "comedy" element of "romantic comedy" can be accomplished with silly sight gags like cakes falling on people's heads. The overall plot has one seriously crippling flaw--Mandy Moore's character two-times men to a level in which she's getting engaged to one and considering moving in with another! The viewer is expected to overlook her major indiscretions because she's cute and gets bossed around by her family. The writers would like to have us treat it as if she was going on a few too many dinner dates, not seriously manipulating the lives of two men.

    I went with a female friend to see Because I Said So in the theaters because I figured I could handle a slightly silly romantic comedy, and I was willing to overlook minor flaws to get a few good laughs. I had to look long and hard to find redeeming qualities to the movie. Actors Gabriel Macht (as Mandy Moore's loveable, guitar-playing, easy-going romantic boyfriend) and Stephen Collins (as the father of Gabriel Macht's character and a foil to Diane Keaton's mother role) are both outstanding. The other actors have rotten comedic timing or a forceful method that makes the reader cringe instead of laugh. You will laugh at a few sight gags (a balloon stuck to the back of Mandy Moore's dress, anyone?), and Keaton's wardrobe is a stunning marriage of retro and modern stylings, but there is little else to hold this film together.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Mom's a nut.
    The story was typical romantic comedy, but the mother character was unbelievably interfering and juvenile. Quite understandably, she makes her daughters insane.
