Because I Said So

Movie_because_i_said_so In this unwatchable romantic comedy from director Michael Lehmann ("40 Days and 40 Nights") Diane Keaton plays Daphne Wilder, an inept mother of three pretty but not-believable-as-siblings daughters. Circumcision, breast size and orgasm jokes abound as the never-had-a-climax mom surreptitiously places online dating ads for her awkward daughter Milly (Mandy Moore) to catch a lad. Milly's romantic choice is split between a gentlemanly architect (Tom Everett Scott) and a smarmy guitar player (Gabriel Macht) with an eligible father who falls for Daphne. Every attempt at slapstick and innuendo-laced humor falls flat in a seemingly computer-written chick flick that contributes to keeping the genre the most reviled of all cinematic categories.   
Rated PG-13. 102 mins. (D) (One Star)
