  • Editorial Reviews

    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.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Water torture May 28, 2007
    Format:DVD
    "Because I Said So" inhabits a level of the underworld where the neurotic run wild, calm is a four-letter word and one character is more or less identified as "the sister who set the family record for orgasms." It actually sickened me a little. It couldn't be any worse if each DVD came laced with anthrax.

    Ostensibly this is a romantic comedy - though it is the opposite of romantic and funny like a shiv to the belly - about a mother and her three daughters, the youngest of which has either rotten taste in men, or rotten luck. The mother is Diane Keaton, while the youngest daughter is Mandy Moore. It should tell you something that Moore is the best thing about the movie.

    Building off her mother-as-a-dictator performance in "The Family Stone" Keaton is Daphne, professional loon. She seems to be a baker; she lives in a million-dollar townhouse, so she must traffic angel dust, too. At any rate, she's the kind of mother who, at some point, talks simply for the sensation of mouthing words, dresses like Julie Andrews met Cruella DeVille, cries in proverbial hiccups, psychosomatically loses her voice, and eventually breaks out into song with her three daughters, who occasionally perform doo-wop numbers in front of small audiences of friends, husbands, and rotten men.

    Forty years ago, women like this were either put on valium, or put away.

    Daphne is borderline incoherent, a manipulator, and such an unhinged, meddling jack lope that she signs her daughter up for an online dating service, then screens the potential suitors. Unbeknowst to Millie (Moore), Daphne has set her up with an architect (Tom Everett Scott) who might be the blandest creep ever committed to celluloid. There's no reason to like him, and he's not interesting enough to hate.

    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.

    The story was typical romantic comedy, but the mother character was unbelievably interfering and juvenile. Quite understandably, she makes her daughters insane.
