Critic Reviews of "Because I Said So"
Ebert & RoeperFebruary 20, 2007
I hated this movie. I think it's the worst performance of Diane Keaton's career.
Time OutFebruary 10, 2007
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.
TIME MagazineFebruary 06, 2007
If you don't expect too much of it, you may find yourself pleasantly -- all right, soothingly -- surprised by it.
CNN.comFebruary 03, 2007
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.
Wall Street JournalFebruary 02, 2007
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.
USA TodayFebruary 02, 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.
BeliefnetDecember 09, 2014
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.
ComingSoon.netJanuary 07, 2011
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.

Like steel pins poking through the eyes
Boston PhoenixApril 23, 2009
The ensuing cycle of miscommunication is endless and trying.
Fayetteville Free WeeklyFebruary 02, 2009
There are chick flicks and upchuck flicks. The movie Because I Said So is an upchuck chick flick.
Hollywood.comNovember 20, 2008
This is a by-the-book chick flick we're talking about, but the writers and director apparently didn't want to push the envelope when it came to the supporting characters -- or the main characters.
