Corny romance will bore kids.

A compelling idea delicately handled and neatly played, especially by Bullock. It just lacks the emotional directness to turn the good into the great.

Most time travel stories %u2014 even in the hands of the best writers %u2014 are riddled with plot paradoxes and logic problems, and The Lake House is alas no exception . . .
...an attempt to rethink an essentially old-fashioned love story. That it falters under the weight of its own shaky premise is an unfortunate by-product. (HD-DVD Edition)
For fans of classic time-askew romance movies like A Portrait of Jennie, Kate & Leopold or Somewhere in Time, The Lake House DVD is especially recommended.
One could say that the sparse décor of the titular abode's interior explains, if not necessary excuses, the disc's slim extras.
