It's a lame duck of a film.

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

Treats women like idiots and men like inflatable sex toys.

There's a special circle of hell reserved for whoever thought up the moment where Macht tells Moore she smells like "cake batter".

Towards the end, the spectacle of Milly faking an orgasm for her mother's edification is, frankly, enough to kill anyone's hopes of romance.

Everyone here is a caricature, and the gaps are papered over with hyperactive shtick. I haven't seen so many cakes dropped or smashed since I Love Lucy.

If you don't expect too much of it, you may find yourself pleasantly -- all right, soothingly -- surprised by it.

Recycling every cliche in the rom-com handbook, it's clear from the very first that Lehmann has sacrificed his characters on the altar of sappy endings. What a waste -- for everybody.

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.
February 2, 2007
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.

Diane Keaton has a lot to answer for in her willingness to portray Hollywood's idea of middle-aged womanhood.

Spark? Romance? Wit? Nope, sorry.

Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, when they reached a certain age, played harridans and ax murderers. Diane Keaton has started playing mothers, but, alas, the effect is about the same: She's scary. Very scary.

Keaton is a national treasure, always worth the visit even when, as is the case of Because I Said So, her movie isn't.
February 2, 2007
There's a charming bonhomie among the sisters, and there are cute touches to the romances.
February 2, 2007
Any relationship between the world of Because I Said So and actual human behavior is purely coincidental.
February 2, 2007
The jokes are crude and repetitious.

Call it a hunch, but I don't think you're going to see a clip from the appalling romantic comedy Because I Said So at this spring's Diane Keaton tribute at Lincoln Center.
February 2, 2007
As a member of their generation, and one who considered them among the best actresses of Hollywood's most probing era, I am both cheered and alarmed by the recent spectacles Jane Fonda, Susan Sarandon and Diane Keaton have made of themselves.

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.
