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.

    That movie is soo overrated. I never even got what it meant. And, there's also lame songs playing every 5 minutes of the movie. :mad :mad
