As for Sissy Spacek, I can't think of a sounder role to reflect the unique qualities that make her so special.

It is phony, manipulative films like this that make people line up for Paul Blart: Mall Cop.

When Hill and Moore leave story and characters behind to veer off into suspenseless chases through cornfields, one wonders if the era of earnest American drama may be coming to a close.

A convoluted, discombobulated take on a small-town drama, Lake City shifts gears so often it never gets out of the driveway.

With all the high-profile movies blasting into theaters at this time of year, Lake City will probably get lost in the shuffle. That won't be a tragedy.

The only thing saving Lake City from total ridiculousness is Spacek.

Mother and son have an uneasy bond that should be familiar to anyone who has ever seen a movie in which a child's room has been preserved and locked tight.

The astonishingly inept finish could serve as a primer in screenwriting classes on how not to wind up a family drama.

One of those Deep Dark Secret movies, the dull indie Lake City combines a wholly uninteresting family mystery with a wholly unconvincing crime drama.

Only natural spitfire Spacek, as the pickup-driving mom of the land, feels fresh.

Wade Major
Boxoffice Magazine

An intermittently admirable but largely incongruous work that suggests not only divergent sensibilities on the part of the two neophyte filmmakers, but a certain indecisiveness regarding their core audience.

When Sissy Spacek speaks her cliched lines in the mediocre screenplay of Lake City, her delivery lends them a resonance that is not in the written words.

"Lake City" is a throwaway film with a cast it doesn't deserve.

The movie has an earnest tone, and a burnished golden glow that's pleasing to the eye, but the characters have no life beyond their immediate problems, and the actions the plot requires them to take to resolve them.

All of these movies uneasily coexist under the umbrella title of Lake City, which is a shame because Sissy Spacek can be found wasting a genuinely affecting performance in this mess.

The real shame is the waste of Spacek. She's an American treasure who doesn't work nearly enough; to see this star make a rare appearance, only to wither among such emotional cheap shots, is the one thing in Lake City that will genuinely make you weep.
