Because I Said So DVD



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 May 8, 2007 just in time for Mother’s Day from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. Diane Keaton (Something’s Gotta Give) brings her idiosyncratic, comic charm to the role of Daphne Wilder, a meddling mother of three beautiful, spirited daughters played by Mandy Moore (American Dreamz), Lauren Graham (Evan Almighty) and Piper Perabo (The Prestige). Stephen Collins (“7th Heaven”), Tom Everett Scott (That Thing You Do!) and Gabriel Macht (The Good Shepherd) complete the cast as the men who try to win the affection of the Wilder women. A fiercely funny film about the comic mayhem that unfolds when a mother can’t help doing all the wrong things for all the right reasons – all in the name of love – Because I Said So is directed by Michael Lehmann (The Truth about Cats and Dogs, Heathers) from a script by Karen Leigh Hopkins (Stepmom) and Jessie Nelson (I Am Sam). Produced by Paul Brooks (My Big Fat Greek Wedding) and Nelson, Because I Said So takes a hilarious look at family dynamics and asks the universal question: when, if ever, is a mother’s job done? The DVD is priced at $29.98 SRP. Pre-order close is April 3, 2007.

Because I Said So (2007)

Diane Keaton stars as Daphne Wilder, a mother whose love knows no bounds or boundaries. She is the proud mom of three daughters: stable psychologist Maggie (Graham), sexy and irreverent Mae (Perabo) and insecure, adorable Milly (Moore)—who, when it comes to men, is like psychotic flypaper. 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 mom placed an ad in the online personals to find him. Comic mayhem unfolds as Daphne continues to do the wrong thing for the right reasons...all in the name of love. In a hilarious battle of strong wills, the mother-daughter dynamic is tested in all its fierce, wacky complexity. The girls help Daphne finally discover the truths and impossibilities of motherly love, all while trying to answer the questions: where does it begin and where should it end?
