I enjoyed this movie, yes it's predictable, but what RomCom's aren't.

A very good movie. About a mother who wants the best for her daughter, which includes finding the perfect guy for her. The mother finds one suitable guy, but the daughter finds another. A happy ending after all of the interesting an funny things happen.

Mothers will do almost anything for their children & this movie shows to what extent one mother went to make sure her daughter finds Mr Right & as a mother myself i am sure i would do the same. what a wonderful movie diane keaton is such a wonderful actress & mandy moore looks so mature playing a more serious role. i like this this movie

I was surprised how much I enjoyed this movie. Very enjoyable in a light-hearted and predictable sort of way

Don't go out of your to see this, it is very dull and disappointing. Might be good for a date night, but other than that don't bother with it.

bleh- turned it off after 5 minutes, just couldn't stand it, so formulaic and boring.

Maybe Diane Keaton fans can find something to like about her character. I'm not a good source as I didn't choose the movie and never cared for her performances. Some of the other characters are fun, or at least more tolerable.

Lame, girlie rom com in which a single mother & her grown daughters discuss their pedestrian sex lives in way too much detail. I only gave it 2 stars because of Diane Keaton's stylish retro wardrobe. If you watch the film, be sure to turn off the volume.

There is the stable psychologist Maggie, the sexy and irreverent Mae and the insecure, adorable Milly - who, when it comes to men, is like psychotic flypaper. In order to prevent her youngest child from making the same mistakes she did, Daphne decides to set Milly up with the perfect man. Milly does not know that her mom placed an ad in the online personals to find him. Daphne continues to do the wrong thing for the right reasons - all in the name of love. The girls help Daphne finally discover the truths and impossibilities of motherly love.
