    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.

    2.0 out of 5 stars One of the most awful movies ever. February 21, 2008
    By Dennis!
    Format:DVD
    The characters in this movie are pretty universally reprehensible. Okay, maybe that's a strong word. But they're most definitely not all that likeable.

    Diane Keaton's character is the most overbearing mother I've ever -- EVER -- seen on screen. She had little to no redeeming value to her whatsoever. I know we're supposed to feel some sympathy for her because she lost her husband and had only her kids to lend purpose to her life, but I seriously was getting ready to throw things at the screen whenever she was on. I also screamed "Good God, STFU already!" at her many many times. I mean, really. She's THAT annoying.

    And that fact makes her kids really annoying too because none of them -- adults all -- can even remotely set any boundaries with her. One is willing to accept a call from her while she's making out with a date; the other two are all too happy to be on a conference call with her at the time.

    "Johnny" is also wildly annoying because he, like the girls, can't get a handle of his kid either. I mean really, who doesn't say a single word to his out of control child when he smashes cake into a stranger's face? That kid is going to grow up to be a horrible spoiled brat. I guess his character was meant to be the endearing one, the one you like, the one you hope Milly ends up with, but his charm kinda gets overtaken by his inability to grow some balls with his son.

    And finally, "Jason" -- I'm sure he's written this way, so I guess doing a good job of being unlikeable -- comes across as a rich snob. (Another reason Diane Keaton is so annoying is because she seems like him only because of his pedigree rather than his personality.
