Here is the list of top movies about mother daughter relationships. You can watch some of these best mother-daughter movies on Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime.
12. Because I Said So (2007)
Afraid that her daughter will follow her footsteps, Daphne (Diane Keaton) tries to set her daughter Milly (Mandy Moore) up to the “right man”. Daphne and Milly always gravitate around each other despite the fights and personality clashes. Diane Keaton is energetic and so much fun in this role. And Mandy Moore is very good as the quirky daughter who is, despite some difficulty to admit, very much like her mother. “Because I Said So” sticks to genre conventions but the comedy aspect of the film is not typical at all. That is what makes this mother-daughter relationship special.
