Because I Said So (2007)
Words fail me...
I just finished watching Because I said so with my mum and we were utterly appalled.
As much as I like a good chick flick, this film was honestly an insult to all women. The dialogue was completely unrealistic and overly sappy; who on earth talks about sex with their mum? Don't get me started on the characters! Milly was so annoying I wanted to shoot her. The other two sisters - sensible psychiatrist and sexy man eater- were beyond stereotypical.
As another reviewer acutely observed, Diane Keaton's performance is a parody of her most neurotic characters - I'm reminded mainly of Annie from The First Wives Club- on speed.
Not to mention that the dynamics between the characters are impossible to believe- Keaton's character falling for the struggling musician's dad in the space of what, 5 minutes? Oh, please! I knew that this was not going to be an Oscar -worthy movie, but it was worse than I could have ever imagined.
