Because I Said So
Tuesday 19th June 2007
A mother's love knows no boundaries in Because I Said So, an irresistible comedy about the complex bond between mothers and daughters, coming to DVD on courtesy of Entertainment In Video in the wake of its £1 million UK box office gross.
The inimitable Diane Keaton (Somethings Gotta Give, Annie Hall, ather of the Bride) brings her unique comic charm to the role of Daphne Wilder, a meddling mother of three beautiful, spirited daughters played by Mandy Moore (American Dreamz, The Princess Diaries), Lauren Graham (The Pacifier) and Piper Perabo (The Prestige, Cheaper by the Dozen, Coyote Ugly). Stephen Collins (7th Heaven, Blood Diamond), Tom Everett Scott (That Thing You Do!, ER) and Gabriel Macht (The Good Shepherd) complete the cast as the men who try to win the affection of the Wilder women.
Directed by Michael Lehmann (The Truth about Cats and Dogs, Heathers), Because I Said So takes a fiercely funny look at family dynamics and asks the universal question: when, if ever, is a mother's job finished?
Daphne Wilder (Keaton) is a single mother whose love knows no bounds - or boundaries. Her brood consists of three free-spirited daughters: stable psychologist Maggie (Graham), sexy and irreverent Mae (Perabo) and insecure, adorable Milly (Moore) whose love life is, quite frankly, a disaster area.
In order to prevent her youngest from making the same mistakes she did, Daphne decides to set Milly up with the perfect man. Little does Milly know, however, that her mother has placed a newspaper ad in order to find him.
Comic mayhem unfolds as Daphne continues to do the wrong thing for the right reasons...all in the name of love.
