Powerhouse actresses Diane Keaton, Mandy
Moore, Lauren Graham and Piper Perabo serve up the laughs
when they join wickedly funny director Michael Lehmann (The
Truth About Cats & Dogs, 40 Days and 40 Nights, Heathers
in his new film about cutting the apron strings, Because
I Said So.
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
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?
Joining Lehmann behind the scenes on Because I Said So
are scribes Karen Leigh Hopkins (Stepmom
) and Jessie
Nelson (I Am Sam
). Paul Brooks (My Big Fat Greek
) produces the film with Nelson.
