A.O. Scott
The New York Times
A mild exercise in deliberate mediocrity, with chuckles and heartwarming moments distributed as carefully as nuts in a factory-made brownie. The movie's lack of ambition is hardly surprising, but both Ms. Moore and Ms. Keaton, who can wring flustered comedy out of the mildest provocation, deserve better. Full Review

Washington Post
What the filmmakers try to play for laughs -- a mom and her daughters chatting about orgasms while shoe shopping -- isn't funny, it's creepy. Full Review
Carina Chocano
Los Angeles Times
Not so much phoned in as it is auto-dialed with a text-to-speech prerecorded message in one of those creepy robotic voices. Full Review
Claudia Puig
USA Today
It's so derivative, unfunny and thuddingly bad that it's one of the more cringe-inducing movies of a genre chock-full of clunkers. Full Review
Dana Stevens
The problem with Because I Said So isn't that it's formulaic and predictable; fans of romantic comedy can get around those qualities, and even appreciate them. It's that the film keeps missing out on its own opportunities for comic gold. Full Review
