OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 329 moviegoers:The graph clearly shows that this is a "chick flick." The females, all ages, clearly loved "Because I Said So." Just a very small percentage rated it as low as "Good." This means your probability of truly enjoying this movie is very high.
As for the guys, about half of all ages truly enjoyed "Because I Said So." The remaining half rated it "Good," which indicates an average movie, so they didn't dislike it. Only a few rated it "below average." For a "chick flick," I believe these males opinions are great. So guys, if it's her turn to pick the movie this one won't hurt at all.
Daphne Wilder (Diane Keaton), a mother whose love knows no bounds or boundaries. She is the proud mom of three daughters: stable psychologist Maggie
(Laure Graham), sexy and irreverent Mae (Piper Perabo) and insecure, adorable Milly
(Mandy Moore)-who, when it comes to men, is like psychotic flypaper.
In order to prevent her youngest from making the same mistakes she did, Daphne decides to set Milly up with the perfect man. Little does Milly know, however, that her mom placed an ad in the online personals to find him. Comic mayhem unfolds as Daphne continues to do the wrong thing for the right reasons...all in the name of love.
In a hilarious battle of strong wills, the mother-daughter dynamic is tested in all its fierce, wacky complexity. The girls help Daphne finally discover the truths and impossibilities of motherly love, all while trying to answer the questions: where does it begin and where should it end?
