Because I Said So DVD Review

We've all had our moms stick their noses where they don't belong at least once or twice, so it'll be easy to relate to Mandy Moore's latest flick, Because I Said So. Will this movie make you clap your hands in agreement or cringe at the clichés? Find out right here!

Because I Said So - Meddling Moms

Whether it's a heartfelt gesture or a cheap attempt to forget about her looming 60th birthday, Daphne (Diane Keaton) is set on fixing her romantically challenged daughter Milly (Mandy Moore) up with a nice guy - and she'll go to any lengths to do so. Unfortunately for Milly, she doesn't have a clue what her mom is up to and doesn't realize that the guy who recently asked her out has actually been hand-picked by her mom through an online dating site!

Because I Said So - Trouble in the Trust Tree

Just when Daphne thinks she's her daughter's last hope at happiness, Milly lands a date of her own, but of course he doesn't measure up to Daphne's high standards. While Milly juggles dating two guys at once, she soon comes to realize what her mother's done and strangely isn't too happy about it. The constant squabbling between Milly and Daphne gets old very fast - making you wish you could just get into a fight with your own mom... cuz it would be more fun.

Beacause I Said So - DVD Features

As you might expect from such a painful movie, the features for this DVD are almost non-existant. There are a couple of boring featurettes, along with a boring music video. Skip this flick and wait for the next Mandy Moore movie to hit theaters.

Because I Said So - Bottom Line

There is nothing original or redeeming about Because I Said So. The story is one that we've seen a million times before with just a little bit of a spin. The fact that Daphne meddles in her daughter's love life isn't that far out there, but the lengths she goes to find Milly the perfect man is a little bit psycho. Technology is a wonderful thing until parents start using it against you! If you're looking for a Mandy Moore fix, rent Chasing Liberty or Saved. Don't waste your allowance on this unfunny flick.

'Men and women must have their adrenals stimulated from time to time.'What?' questioned the Savage, uncomprehending.It's one of the conditions of perfect health. That's why we've made the V.P.S. treatments compulsory.'V.P.S.?'Violent Passion Surrogate. Regularly once a month. We flood the whole system with adrenin. It's the complete physiological equivalent of fear and rage. All the tonic effects of murdering Desdemona and being murdered by Othello, without any of the inconvenience.'But I like the inconveniences.'We don't,' said the Controller. 'We prefer to do things comfortably.'But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.'In fact,' said Mustapha Mond, 'you're claiming the right to be unhappy. Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have ######## and cancer, the right to have too little to eat; the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.' There was a long silence.I claim them all,' said the Savage at last.Mustapha Mond shrugged his shoulders. 'You're welcome,' he said.”  I freaking LOVE Brave New World! It's one of the best books I've ever read, and that conversation between the Controller and John is my favorite part  [s:sm3/1jw1]
