Today is such a yucky day! It's cold I'm sick and [insert more whinging here]. So last night I ended up sticking the list into the randomiser several times (by several I mean 50), and have the list for the first fifty movies I'll be posting about. And because I'm bored I'll go randomise the other fifty now! Yay! I'm writing this up now instead of tonight because it is my oldest and dearest friend's (Lisa) 21st birthday party. How time flies. Feels like only yesterday we were seven years old, dancing in our bedrooms to Britney Spears. Sigh. Anyway, second movie is... Because I Said So! A chick flick classic (I feel), that my friends and I watch together at least once a month.

#2. BECAUSE I SAID SO (2007)

"You're not a helicopter, mom. Quit hovering!"

SYNOPSIS: Daphne Wilder is a mother whose love knows no bounds or boundaries. She is the proud mom of three daughters: stable psychologist Maggie, sexy and irreverent Mae and insecure, adorable Milly - 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 on-line 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 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?

WHY IS IT ON THIS LIST: I know this is a really cheesy chick flick movie, but I love it. I love the relationship the sisters have which each other because it reminds me of the relationship I have with my two best friends. I'm fairly certain that Daphne is also the future version of my mother, and her incessant need to control EVERYTHING drove me nuts and cracked me up all at the same time. I just love that they're all so crazy but they still love each other, no matter how much they fight. I also like that Milly ends up dating two guys at the same time, though I wish there was less shame in her doing so. Guys do it all the time, why can't girls? I suppose her not telling either of them that she was seeing someone else probably has something to do with it... Either way, this is a really cute movie that makes me smile and squee everytime I watch it.
