A little mystery. A little love. Heartache, heart-wrench, sentimentality and romanticism. It will touch your heart.

A satisfyingly sarcasm-free ode to the flickering absurdity of romance

Maybe I'm just overly romantic or sentimental or just plain naive, but I probably liked The Lake House more than I should have.

A little under water, but it still floats.

Like all good romantic movies there's a beautiful house on the lake and a cuddly dog. Good dialogue, great direction, sweet cinematography and good acting -- even by Keanu.

An intriguing idea. Too bad the asteroid sized temporal paradox ruins the end of the flm.

It refreshingly becomes less about time travel and more about the choices we make and the chances we miss.

Agresti has effectively skirted around hard logic with his velvety presentation.

Bullock holds her half of the movie up well, proving that she can do subdued just as well as sunny.

Considered as a vehicle for what I was looking for, (namely these two stars) a success. As a critic, some things you forgive.

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

The most romantic movie since 'Somewhere In Time'

The Lake House demands a serious suspension of disbelief, but if you accept it as a romantic bit of nonsense, it has its pleasures.

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.

...an effective romance...

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

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.

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.

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.
