Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: I can't believe that even the most rabid chick-flick masochists wouldn't gag on it. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Aug 14, 2007

Rotten: I couldn't spoil the plot if I wanted to, since I have no idea how it all ties together. – Stephanie Zacharek,, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: I was hot to trot for the exit halfway through, but a dogged sense of duty kept me stuck in an endless present. – Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: 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. – Bruce Newman, San Jose Mercury News, Jun 24, 2010

Heartwarming love story

This movie was a love story from begining to end with
a little bit of a Sixth Sense like twist. The movie is
slow and not an action adventure movie so it will probably
turn off younger viewers. This movie is well written and the
acting was great from both Sandra and Keanu. The chemistry
between these two actors is much better than it was in Speed.
In this movie you really believe they are in love.

Bottom line, if you love books by Nora Roberts
then you will love this movie as it reminds me of a Nora Roberts book.

Guy vs. Chck-flick - Chick Flick wins!

I'm typically a guy who likes guy movies. I started watching this movie begrudgingly at the request of the females in the house. Although I like guy movies, I also like movies that make you think and try to figure out what’s going on. This one did. I found myself quickly getting sucked into the premise and enjoying both Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves. I thought both of them were perfectly cast for their roles. It’s a good family movie and I think I enjoyed it more than the ladies. I’ll be buying this one, but don’t tell my friends.

The Lake House

I love the subtlty and story weaving of this film.
