I watched it all the way through, fast forwarding only a few times. This is the worst Diane Keaton movie I've ever seen. She is near hysterical through most of the movie. And when she's hysterical, her pitch goes up, up, up. And so do the pitches of her girls. Get them all together and...cover your ears. And, btw, any young (or not) woman on a date with a man for the first time does not go home with him. That's asking for trouble. Of course, in a simple-minded movie like this, nothing bad happens to Diane's little girl, but you can't count on that in the real world.
Lauren Graham and Diane Keaton are two of my favorites. This script is so awful, with cliche characters, hokey dialogue, and eyeroll predictability. I was embarrassed for Lauren and Diane that they were in this. It's as bad as a Hallmark or Lifetime movie.

It is nteresting reading reviews of many films that get bad reviews. Frankly, it is ridiculous that someone may expect much from certain movies, get disappointed and place a negative review about what he or she experienced and not about the movie, really. This is a Hollywood chic movie with a couple of known names. Plot, script, and premises are not something to talk about. It brings a couple of peals of laughter, nothing spectacular, but it is not indeed a comedy film. It is a little movie about a bit of something in a family of a mother and her three children — one who does not get dates because she doesn't know how to. Mother enters the field by using a dating service. Although it works, it complicates life between mother and daughter and the siblings... well, cover for their mother. Performances are adequate for no real character development. This film was not made to awe anyone, including IMBD. Likely got some audience but was not a hit. That is what you can expect from this movie after you read the description, not more. I enjoyed it though.
I love movies like this (i.e. Its Complicated) so when I saw the almost 5 star review, I settled in for an enjoyable evening. Also, I LOVE Lauren Graham in everything I've ever seen her in and I own many of her movies/shows. But this was the worst by far. The writing was ridiculous. I have a crazy over-bearing mother that many people have told me is the craziest mother they've ever met, and the mother in this show was unbelievable. Legitimately--unbelievable--as in, I couldn't establish a suspension of disbelief long enough to enjoy this movie.
Its like all the pieces were there to have a great movie: great actors and a great story line. Then the writers ruined it. Over the top and ridiculous. Annoying dialogue and frequent failed attempts at humor.
Very Chaotic, very typical Diane Keaton as a REAL Helicopter Mom, but cute story line and it held my interest. Although there were times I wanted to Throttle Keaton and tell her to mind her own F.... business.

Cute concept. Awful script. Unbelievable dialogue. Iffy acting. Completely unbelievable course of events. Also not buying the casual singing act. The entire movie is total Hollywood, night in shining armor fantasy land with overdone tropes and jokes. And why is Piper Perabo even in this movie? Her character is a complete afterthought. I suspect it's because the writers wanted another wedding. There is one moment of honesty in this film: Toward the end when Diane Keaton says she was trying to help her daughter not turn into herself; that was a beautiful moment. I also enjoyed Stephen Collins for the most part and Gabriel Macht was lovely to look at.
I love Diane Keaton but this movie was very disappointing. All characters were very predictable and stereotypical, dialogs full of clichés, nervous laughs or hysterical scenes, the plot primitive, silly and shallow. Totally waist of time.
Item received in good order considering that was used. No problem there. I loved this film it was fun and the actors are so good, I'm great admirer of Diane Keaton and she is as good as ever. Very enjoyable!
