This Poster Will Make You Dumb

Look at this poster, but only for a moment. Prolongued expose will lower your I.Q. because it assumes you're a complete moron.

So let's start with the title moron. The movie is titled, Because I Said So. Don't need to see the movie because the title has left no sort of intrigue whatsoever. Overbearing parent consistently inflicts strict guidelines on his/her child. Movie begins with a flashback showing the long history of the parent's overbearningness. Movie ends with everything getting out of control (maybe a wedding?) and at the point when the parent is about to lose complete control a close friend tells the parent to "just let go" and then parent learns a valuable life lesson.

In case you didn't get that from the title moron, there's always copy that reads "she's just your normal, overprotective, overbearing, over-the-top mother."

And if that didn't get you moron, then the visual will. Diane Keaton pointing a finger at Mandy Moore as if to say "you're going to do it Because I Said So." And Mandy Moore is giving a look as if to say "Ah Ma, not again."

Do you get it now moron? Good.

I saw the preview for this a few weeks ago (before Stranger then Fiction, btw great movie). It looked pretty ridiculous and similar to the "Upside of Anger". I'm kind of pissed at myself for being able to make that comparison.

Pat, i think you nailed the plot but what about the part where the mom (single mother) who is overprotective will finally make time for her own personal life and maybe find love of her own. I think that happened in "the upside of anger." Joan Allen falls for Costner.

Whoah, go easy on The Upside Of Anger. That's not such a bad movie. It made me believe that Kevin Costner could act again. Definitely not the mucky sap that this movie will be.

But I think you're right on the single Mom finding a love interest of her own. That's a nice sub-plot addition.
