The Lake House Reviews

I have always felt that both Ms. Bullock's patented expressions of anguish and Mr. Reeves' stoical minimalism have been somewhat underrated.

While the movie isn't as bad as its dubious trailer portends, it suffers terribly from a truncated narrative puzzle device that connects two lovers from different eras via an old-fashioned mailbox at a lake house.

The last time Bullock and Reeves were together on screen the result was Speed. This should have been entitled Stop.

The Lake House demands a serious suspension of disbelief, but if you accept it as a romantic bit of nonsense, it has its pleasures.
June 24, 2006
A compelling idea delicately handled and neatly played, especially by Bullock. It just lacks the emotional directness to turn the good into the great.

Who knows -- perhaps it's not a glitch in the fourth dimension that Kate and Alex must traverse, but rather just some bad editing.

One of the most nonsensical and unsatisfying films of the year.

...an effective romance...

June 24, 2006
A movie that's trying with all its might to be an earnest, poignant relationship drama, yet it fails at each and every turn thanks to zero chemistry between its leads and the complete absence of a coherent plot.

Bullock's decision to play Kate as a morose kill-joy is particularly inexplicable. She's getting letters from some hot architect through a hole in the time-space continuum, and yet her expression remains impassive, her voice flat, her outlook maudlin.

If you're not sucked in by the romance of the story, there's a chance you'll find it laughably awful, thanks to poorly written lines and Keanu's delivery of the world's least convincing sneeze.

It's hard to recall a recent picture in which Bullock has been allowed to draw upon her natural charisma... After about 20 minutes, you just wish somebody would tickle her.

Dear Keanu and Sandra: Speed is more your speed

Good, but put simply, any romance that doesn't make at least one successful major assault on your tear ducts is one handkerchief shy of great romance.

Reunites the stars of Speed for a film that's beautifully shot but about as unspeedy as humanly possible.

The entire concept sounds like something Tony Leung dreamed up on a bender during 2046. Sure, it's complete nonsense... but what lush, irresistibly entertaining nonsense.
June 20, 2006
'The Lake House' is one of those romances that strives for unconventionality at the expense of clear storytelling and good sense.

June 20, 2006
For all its magical realism and relative beauty and intelligence, 'The Lake House' is a confusingly downcast chick-flick.
June 19, 2006
Reeves and Bullock bring the right balance of emotions to their roles. They give The Lake House its humor, its drama, and its undeniable romantic spirit.
