More Info:
  • James Berardinelli

    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.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Sheri Linden

    Amongst the cardboard-cutout supporting characters, Lauren Graham brings a welcome deadpan sensibility to the overeager proceedings.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Jack Mathews

    Keaton is so over-the-top, so loud and so physically animated that when Daphne develops a case of laryngitis mid-way through the movie, it's as if a neighbor's car alarm has finally been shut down. However, in those silent moments, when Daphne is communicating with notes, you realize how much you like this actress.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    Because I Said So might have been sharper if it had focused on the mother/daughter relationship and didn't blunt its story with romantic comedy.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    A mild exercise in deliberate mediocrity, with chuckles and heartwarming moments distributed as carefully as nuts in a factory-made brownie. The movie's lack of ambition is hardly surprising, but both Ms. Moore and Ms. Keaton, who can wring flustered comedy out of the mildest provocation, deserve better.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    The problem with Because I Said So isn't that it's formulaic and predictable; fans of romantic comedy can get around those qualities, and even appreciate them. It's that the film keeps missing out on its own opportunities for comic gold.

    Slate Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    Any relationship between the world of Because I Said So and actual human behavior is purely coincidental.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Scott Foundas

    Like nearly all of Lehmann's post- "Heathers" work, it's lazy and disinterested--a hack-for-hire job any number of film-school grads could have put through its uninspired paces.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Dennis Harvey

    An exercise in canned cuteness, Because I Said So pushes its normally appealing stars, Diane Keaton and Mandy Moore, over the edge of sitcom hysteria.

    Variety Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Formulaic romantic junk.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Angel Cohn

    Overall, Graham and Perabo have so little to do that it's hard to imagine why Maggie has three daughters instead of one; they just clutter up her screen time. As to Perabo, she seems to exist for the sole purpose of making risque remarks, and the family dog has more memorable moments.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    This slapdash, charmless, baldly boomer-chasing romantic comedy, directed by Michael Lehmann (Heathers) from a clunky, orgasm-obsessed script by Karen Leigh Hopkins and Jessie Nelson, is the lazy studio's answer to a call for more age-appropriate entertainment for "More" magazine readers.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Toddy Burton

    With a lazy, cliché, rabid plot and paper-thin character development, Because I Said So might as well have been directed by a trained chimpanzee.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    What the filmmakers try to play for laughs -- a mom and her daughters chatting about orgasms while shoe shopping -- isn't funny, it's creepy.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Andrea Gronvall

    Throughout most of her career Diane Keaton has shown sound instincts, so it's a mystery why she failed to sniff this false, brittle comedy out as a waste of her gifts.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Connie Ogle

    The search for true love is the backbone of romantic comedy as well as the lifeblood of match.com, but this film's clumsy, completely inauthentic portrayal of it is handled in a shockingly tedious fashion.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Thirty years after "Annie Hall," the beloved actress is scraping below the bottom of the barrel with this desperately unfunny farce, in which she mugs and pratfalls in the worst performance of her entire career.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    It's a dreadful exercise, tin-eared and sincere, bereft of any truth or inspiration.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    It's so derivative, unfunny and thuddingly bad that it's one of the more cringe-inducing movies of a genre chock-full of clunkers.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    A sloppily made bowl of reheated chick-flick cliches.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Sara Brady

    The film drags by, charmlessly, endlessly. Shrieking.

    Premiere Full Review
  • Stephen Cole

    A 105-minute cringe-a-thon that reduces the Katharine Hepburn of her generation to a sitcom harpy presiding over a brood of Valley Girl chicks.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    As close to perfectly unwatchable as it can be.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    I hope Keaton doesn't begin to make a specialty of these roles. They play into what is least attractive in her repertoire – the loosey-goosey, knockabout side of her that all too swiftly devolves into hysterics.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • William Arnold

    It's hard to imagine how the movie year could possibly produce a more annoyingly stupid movie. It's so witless, broadly played and insulting to anyone's intelligence that it's almost as offensive, in its own way, as "Jackass: The Movie."

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Chris Kaltenbach

    Watching this movie, with Diane Keaton cast as the ne plus ultra of irritating, overbearing mothers, is roughly the equivalent of listening to fingernails on a chalkboard for nearly two hours.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Rick Kisonak

    By far the most appallingly cretinous picture in which Keaton has ever appeared.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    It's tempting to write off Because I Said So as just another dumb, bad comedy, made yesterday and forgotten tomorrow. But no matter how negligible this particular picture is, it's time to look a little deeper. If these are the only kinds of roles we can conceive for actresses who have grown into their faces, as Keaton has, it's no wonder so many younger performers are seeking the knife.

    Salon.com Full Review
  • Carina Chocano

    Not so much phoned in as it is auto-dialed with a text-to-speech prerecorded message in one of those creepy robotic voices.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    This film bespeaks a truly startling mistrust of the movie audience, and, what's more, a disrespect for the feature film medium. Yes, of course it was conceived as an unpretentious entertainment pitched mainly to girls and young women. Yet that doesn't explain the nightmarish quality of the finished product.
