Because I Said So


This movie is a good movie for mothers and daughters to watch. It might help that overbearing, too-involved mom to finally get the point and let go. It was a little hard for me to understand because my mom really doesn't try to tell me what to do anymore and hasn't for a long time. Not to mention she definitely doesn't try to set me up on dates and tell me who I should date. I would be ridiculously annoyed and tell her to stop anyway. There are three daughters in this movie that were raised pretty much by their mom by herself. So, you can understand the extremely close bond but when you mix that in when a overbearing personality it can be disastrous. I am sounding like I didn't like the movie which is not true. I did like the movie but there were definite times that I wanted to tell the mother (Diane Keaton) to SHUT UP! This movie definitely had some funny parts and left me with a good feeling in the end. I think that is pretty much all you can ask from romantic comedies. I love them myself but I think that is because I respect them for what they are and I don't have expectations for them to be anything else.
