Because I Said So

Its another Diane Keaton film! I’m a bit obsessed but she is such a good actress in Chick Flicks and RomComs!

So this film is about three daughters and their mother Diane Keaton. It focuses mainly on the youngest Milly and her search for the perfect guy and her interferring mum. I think all women and even men can relate to that last part. So her mother takes it into her own hands and puts up a personal add to date my daughter. She then proceeds to meet them but who will she allow to date her daughter?

So Diane Keaton in this film will frustrate you to no end you’ll just want to slap her out of her stupid controlling obsession over her daughter’s love life. This is great because it means she has played her character beautifully. The daughters the youngest played by Mandy Moore and the other two played by Lauren Graham and Piper Perabo had a great sister dynamic from the cheeky one to the independent one. The men were great too but i feel like because I didn’t mention them in the plot i’ll let you make your own opinions of them. I’ll only say that Harvey from Suits the TV show is in it!

The plot and the general flow of the movie wasn’t so great and I think that was because the script lacked witty lines and was too focused on the romcom side of the film. Also I just wanted more depth and development from the characters as they felt very one dimensional which would have been rectified by more backstory on their childhood together.

Overall, it is a fun chick flick to watch if you want something to switch off to. A lesson to all mothers not to butt in on their children’s relationships. A nice chill out movie in which your crush for Gabriel Macht (Harvey from Suits) increases!

As usual, let me know what you think below.
