"She's Just Your Normal Overprotective, Overbearing, Over-the-Top Mother."
A meddling mother tries to set her daughter up with the right man so her kid won't follow in her footsteps.

"...Moore gives a terrifically appealing performance...  Adam Nayman, Eye Weekly
"Lots of heart and plenty of laughs.  Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"...Lauren Graham brings a welcome deadpan sensibility...  Sheri Linden, The Hollywood Reporter

Editor's Note
Diane Keaton lights up the screen as an overbearing, matchmaking single mother in this slightly offbeat romantic comedy from director Michael Lehmann (HEATHERS, THE TRUTH ABOUT CATS AND DOGS). The film is a lot of fun, with both Keaton and Mandy Moore delivering energetic performances as a loveable and pretty believable mother-daughter team. After seeing two of her three stunning daughters (Piper Perabo, Lauren Graham) happily marry, Daphne Wilder (Keaton) focuses all her worries on Milly (Moore), her youngest, most insecure, and unlucky-in-love offspring. Twentysomething Milly has got her career as a chef figured out, but is clueless when it comes to love, attracting a never-ending slew of married, cheating, and closeted men. Taking matters into her own hands, Daphne places a personal ad for her daughter, interviewing the suitors herself and settling on one particularly promising young man named Jason. Meanwhile, clueless to her mother's plans, Milly starts to fall for Johnny, a cute musician who in spite of treating Milly like gold, is hardly what Daphne has in mind for her daughter's future. As Milly becomes increasingly involved with both men, Daphne must face whether maybe she could still have her own romantic life at age 60, instead of just living vicariously through her grown daughters.

Unabashedly a chick flick, BECAUSE I SAID SO's intended audience is clearly female, but that's not to say it's all soft. The movie's girl talk includes frank discussions about sex and orgasms, demonstrating the unusually close relationships between the film's women and distinguishing the film from others in its genre. While following a vague romantic-comedy arc, the film also explores the bonds between women, focusing more on the mother-daughter relationship at the heart of the film than on any of the male love interests.

Expert Review Because I Said So - DVD
By: Chris Beaumont Blogcritics.org Reviews
Published on: 5/17/2007 7:49 AM
When I saw this in the theater, one word came to mind -- delightful. Yes, that is the perfect word to describe Because I Said So. It is a light film that has a couple of poignant "real" moments adrift in the sea of a formulaic "chick flick." This is a movie that exists in that Hollywood-created fantasy of the romantic comedy. It is a land where people who should not, and would not, have these problems in the real world have the problems that probably exist in one form or another in the lives of many of their real world counterparts. ...read the full review

"[Diane Keaton and Mandy Moore] are touching and amusing to watch." 02/02/2007 p.E1

ReelViews 8 of 10
Because I Said So is a made-to-order romantic comedy of the type "B" variety (that's the one where the heroine is torn between the socially and financially "ideal" guy and the one who really makes her happy). As I have previously written, a formulaic approach is not always a bad thing in a romantic comedy provided the screenplay shows moderate intelligence, the characters are appealing, and there's chemistry between the leads. Fortunately, Because I Said So satisfies these criteria. So, despite being rooted firmly in "chick flick" territory (with a high "cuteness" index), it has the capacity to please to viewers of both genders who appreciate the genre...It's a testimony to Keaton's appeal that audiences accept her in this role and, while the part isn't as fully developed as in Something's Gotta Give, her presence enriches the proceedings. - James Berardinelli

Reel.com 6 of 10
Unless she's reined in by a strong director, Diane Keaton will often indulge in her most exasperating mannerisms--the nervous tics and flaky, off-kilter delivery that have been the Oscar winner's cinematic stock-in-trade since her Seventies-era films with Woody Allen. But whereas Allen knew how to exploit Keaton's quirky, neurotic persona to endearing effect in Annie Hall (1977), Michael Lehmann basically allows her to run amuck in the treacly date movie Because I Said So. Playing a ditzy control freak of a mother with serious boundary issues, Keaton comes across as such a screeching, flailing flibbertigibbet that you want to give her costars tranquilizer dart guns...Although Because I Said So represents a misfire for Keaton, she'll hopefully rebound in a role better suited to her idiosyncratic gifts. - Tim Knight
