Overview

The Lake House

Two people develop an unusual relationship that bends the boundaries of time and place in this romantic fantasy. Kate Forster (Sandra Bullock) is a doctor who lives in a beautiful home by a lake. Forced to move elsewhere, she requests that any correspondence that arrives at the lake house be passed on to her new address. To her surprise, she soon receives a romantic note from Alex Burnham (Keanu Reeves), an architect who lives in the cottage she once called home. However, a look at the postmark on the letter reveals that he lived at the home two years before she did, and that somehow they've come in contact with one another through a space in time. A remake of Lee Hyun-seung's acclaimed Korean romance Il Mare (aka Siworae), The Lake House was the first American production from Argentinean filmmaker Alejandro Agresti; the supporting cast includes Christopher Plummer, Dylan Walsh, and Lynn Collins.

This movie had the possibility of being a good movie, until they cast Keanu Reeves to play it. Keanu, per usual, played Keanu.

i recommend this movie to everyone who has a romantic spot in them, it's so nice and moving, i went out of the cinema thinking , wow, i would like a story like that! it's a fantasy movie, but that's what movies are about right? to make you dream and give you an enjoyable pastime from life's routine. highly recommended!

We enjoyed this sweet story and were so glad to know love stories can still be made without being too sappy or violence. Most of us are just everyday people and yes, we believe in "true" love, 36 years of marriage has proved that.

The movie has a surprise ending. If you like Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves then you must see this movie.

I have to admit that I groaned out loud when my wife picked this one up, but after watching it, I must admit it was excellent film. I love how they never explained how the time lapse was taking place giving you the opportunity to throw logic out the window. There is a definite chemistry between Reeves and Bullock. Also a great performance by Christopher Plummer, in his recent roles like National Treasure and Must Love Dogs, he seems to have a sense of passion with his lines that I haven't seen before. The soundtrack was great too. Loved the song by Maccer (Sir Paul McCartney) and Nick Drake is always welcome on my personal soundtrack. Really a great movie that I owe an apology to my wife for begroaning.

I wish that Sandra and Keanu would do more movies together. They have such palpable chemistry. You got just a little taste of it in Speed, but this movie gives the viewer so much more. They both give stellar performances. The story can be a little difficult to follow and it requires a lot of suspension of disbelief, but as one reviewer said, it all ties together in the end. The acting is so good that it deserves 5 stars.

Both my mom and I loved this film, me with a passion. The chemistry between Sandra Bullock and Keenu Reeves is just spectacular! It's a great movie and a must see for any Sandra Bullock or Keanu Reeves fan.

Even if you don't like Keanu Reeves, as some have expressed ,this still deserves 5 stars just for the beautifuly photography. I personally have enjoyed watching this movie. Put it on several times and each time I spotted something I didn't see before. Buy it and enjoy. Good date movie. The chemistry between the two stars, Keanu and Sandra is great.

In spite of Keanu's statuelike appearance, the chemistry between him and Sandra is incredible. Putting that aside, the movie is a fairy tail and an artform. It will go beyond "classic" status...the more I see it the more I want to see it. I finally bought it after watching it "on demand" on cable TV. I try to watch it 4 or 5 times per week and still find small things which I hadnt noticed. I still pull for the good finish...at the end...when Sandra is kneeling at the foot of the mailbox... Whew! Thank God movies like this are still made. Fantasy? Of course...this is why I go to movies...to get away from reality.

At first, I didn't think this movie would good. I didn't go see it in the theatre. But this weekend, I was at my aunt's house, and I saw the DVD case lying on a table. I picked it up and asked if I could watch it, and I did. Now I love this movie. I don't own it yet, but my mom says she is getting it on her way home from work one day. If you haven't seen this, I would highly recommend you do so immediately.

I thought this was a HORRIBLE movie... the story was cheesy and silly had me laughing through out the whole thing. Everyone in the room with me agreed my fav funny part was when Keanu is fixing the sink and says "2006!?" oh man and "those deep socket eyes" it was a big goof. It¿s not because im a guy im saying this lovely movies ive seen and enjoyed but this... this is just bad... why do people still hire Keanu reeves for movies?

This the best Sandra Bullock, Keanu Reeves movie I have ever watched. It is emotional and romantic, sad and happy at the same time. I highly recommend it to everyone, but it is a really good girlfriend night movie.

This is what a romantic movie is supposed to be. To those reviewers who complain that it is so sentimental, seem to wish it had some high action shoot-outs or something, this isn't even trying to meet their needs. It is a great love story, well made, effectively told with some of the most visually stunning cinematography - the kind usually limited to epics, not common for this genre. The chemistry between Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock is very strong, Christopher Plummer gives a superb performance. The soundtrack is notable too. I'm sure if I watch this movie enough times I'll find some holes in the plot, but searching for logical gaps in a film that asks you to suspend disbelief in a magical mailbox would miss the point. Go with it and enjoy. It's terrific.

This was one of the best movies I have seen. It's all about not rushing life or love, and that some things are worth waiting for.

I loved this movie. I have watched this movie four times now, crying at the end each time. We all have a romantic heart and this movie gives it to us - how time can not keep true love apart.

This movie might not make sense to people from a logical stand point but it does a superb job at appealing to your emotions. The chemistry between Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock is just as astounding as it was in Speed (another great movie I might add). Throughout the whole movie we find ourselves rooting for them and ultimately rooting for true love and yes even those hesitant, bitter/cynical people will find themselves doing this also.

Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock showed such great chemisty in Speed, that it was a shame to see Bullock make a sequel with someone else. The Lake House is actually a pretty complex story that I, initially, didn't think could be pulled off. However, all of the dots connect at the end. This movie made me chuckle, sigh, gasp, and yes, I got a little misty. Even my action-loving husband enjoyed this movie.

This is one of those rare and fantastic movies that can put the viewer in a very different place mentally. It is a fantasy, but, think about it, if it could happen in the movie "The Bishop's Wife" why not "The Lake House"?? The viewer does need to pay close attention to understand the premise -- the thought process -- of the author. That's not a problem for me --watching Keanu Reaves. I watch this one over and over and just love it.
