The yawning chasm between the film's aspirations to social significance and its cheese-o-licious straight-to-video construction make it a chucklesome guilty pleasure.

It's a terrifically unstable performance that is admirably matched by the exasperated victims. The ending is too allegorical for its own health, but this is intelligent cinema.

Alas, LaBute loses it entirely in the third and final act, when he yields entirely to genre convention and allows it all to explode into a shoot-out of the utmost silliness.

An intense drama about neighbors who can't get along.

Isn't much fun either as social commentary or procedural guignol.

Lakeview Terrace isn't anywhere as wacky as LaBute's Wicker Man remake, yet the two reveal an artist too caught up with his misanthropic conceits to notice the ridiculous humor in them.

This angry black man wants a 'chocolate drop' of his own -- yes, 'chocolate drop' is actually used in this film! However, it's such a weak movie that you won't get offended.

It's ironic when the tactics it uses to ratchet up the suspense actually reduces the very real tension that gets communicated in its first half.

Not a great buy, maybe stick to renting...

Overall, I liked Lakeview Terrace. I wouldn't buy property there (cue the rim shot), but I'll recommend a rent.

Get a load of how ridiculous the plot is: Samuel L. Jackson plays a short-tempered bigot with a very specific prejudice, namely, mixed couples where the man is white and the woman is black. Otherwise, he has plenty of friends of every ethnicity.

Extras on the disc include a full length commentary by director Neil LaBute and cast member Kerry Washington.
