Moms know what’s best! Because I said caused many daughters to reconsider their own relationships with their fathers after Diana KeatonDaphne Wilder’s took it too far by setting up her youngest daughter, Milly Wilder (Mandy Moore).
In the 2007 romantic comedy, Daphne is worried that Milly will never settle down, or at least choose the wrong man, so she takes matters into her own hands. She not-so-subtly sets up dates with Milly in hopes of finding The One.
Throughout the film, Daphne must learn to let go and let her three daughters make their own decisions. Her eldest children, Maggie (lauren graham) and Mae (perabo piper), they openly express their constant interference and aren’t afraid to point out their own mother’s dating fears.
The heartwarming story shines a light on relationships across the ages, as Daphne finally dips into the dating pool after falling for Joe (Stephen Collins), who turns out to be the father of one of Milly’s suitors, Johnny (gabriel macht).
Fifteen years after it hit theaters, the film’s stars remembered their nosy mother while teasing a sequel via social media.
“15 years later, I still love polka dots”, Moore wrote via Twitter in February 2022. “I miss you @Diane_Keaton, @thelaurengraham and @PiperPerabo and happy 15 years to #BecauseISaidSo!”
the gilmore girls alum was quick to reply to the We are nostalgic star post.
“I miss you too! This was the MOST fun. Can’t we do a sequel? Graham proposed via social media. “All the girls get together with @Diane_Keaton to reflect on the advice they’ve taken/wish they’d taken from her over the years. Working Title: I TOLD YOU SO cc: @TheMandyMoore @PiperPerabo.”
the undercover affairs alum jumped on the potential reunion bandwagon and responded to Graham’s message in February 2022.
“@thelaurengraham great idea! Can we do the singing scenes around the piano again? Perabo tweeted at the time. (and maybe shoe shopping, loved seeing which shoes @Diane_Keaton thought were the coolest) 👠👟🩴🎶 cc: @TheMandyMoore.
