Because I Said So Reviews

Joshua Starnes

Because I Said So seems like it's supposed to be a paean of sorts to motherhood and the enduring love that entails, a love so strong that it inevitably drives its possessor somewhat batty. But what it is, is muddled crap.

Whatever you do, don't go see this movie. Why? Because I said so.

Ultimately, even a vivacious Diane Keaton can't make a familiar film feel fresh -- no matter how hard she tries.

Are there not... Two points in the adventure of the diver: This movie manages to be offensive and yet dull and predictable, as phony as a Kate Spade sidewalk knock-off bag and as unoriginal as the ready-for VH1 soundtrack.

As almost everyone knows by now, the early part of the year has become a dumping ground for dreadful movies. Still, Because I Said So constitutes unusually toxic waste.

On screen or in real life, meddling moms don't get more neurotically ebullient than Diane Keaton's dessert maven in the regrettable 'Because I Said So.'

Avoid the movie so you won't waste 90 minutes of your life on an unfunny, derivative mess.

I don't think anyone actually wrote Because I Said So; I think that some Hollywood artificial intelligence think-tank instead fed DVD box sets of The Gilmore Girls and Sex and the City into a computer, along with Pottery Barn catalogs for roughage. ...

There are chick flicks and upchuck flicks. The movie Because I Said So is an upchuck chick flick.

I hated this movie. I think it's the worst performance of Diane Keaton's career.

It's a lame duck of a film.

Fairly annoying from start to finish, primarily because Keaton is still relying on that ever less-endearing assortment of addlepated antics which won her an Academy Award for Annie Hall back in 1978.

The film contains no laughs, no purpose, and no entertainment.
