Because I Said So
Studio: Universal Pictures
Rated: PG-13
Release Date: 2007-02-02
Cast: Diane Keaton, Mandy Moore, Gabriel Macht, Tom Everett Scott, Lauren Graham
Director: Michael Lehmann
WorkNameSort: Because I Said So
Our Rating: 1.50
Because I Said So director Michael Lehmann is the guy responsible for Heathers back in 1989, which makes his continuing descent into romantic-comedy hell so much more tragic. The Truth About Cats & Dogs and 40 Days and 40 Nights were bad enough, but this latest, about a meddling mom (Diane Keaton) who uses the Internet to set her daughter (Mandy Moore) up with men, is utterly insulting. There's not a member of the cast who isn't better than this premise or its execution. One more of these stinkers and Lehmann will entirely erase the memory of Heathers.
