4.0 out of 5 stars A Moving Love Story Jan. 16 2007
Format:DVD
I gave this four stars because I liked it so much, but there are a few predictable/corny moments that weigh it down a bit.

I didn't expect much when I watched this and so was pleasantly surprised and quite moved. The time-warp idea worked well for me - I love that kind of thing, though it took a while for me to work out which one was in which time. The answer is: Alex Wiler, an architect, is in 2004, two years behind Kate Forester, a doctor.

The premise: Kate, with her dog Jack, moves out of the Lake house, a uniquely designed glass house wrapped around a giant maple tree, and leaves a letter of welcome for the next tenants in the mailbox. Next we see Alex moving in, finding the letter in the mailbox and puzzling over it. He's confused by the date, the reference to the box in the attic (it's not there) and the paw prints on the deck (which aren't there either). A few days later he's painting something on the deck when Jack turns up, runs across the paint and prints paw prints along the deck. (Jack seems to have been a stray, turning up in Alex's life and later running off to be with Kate. That was a little corny for me.)

Confused, mystified, Alex writes a letter to Kate, putting it in the mailbox for the postal worker to collect, but Kate, having had a man die in her arms on Valentine's Day, goes out to the Lake House (still empty since she moved out) to think, and, checking the mailbox, finds Alex's letter.

After some writing back and forth they figure out that they're in two different time zones, parallel (as in, it's the same date, just different years). It's the perfect premise to keep two people in love, apart.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great adaptation July 23 2009
Format:DVD
A Hollywood adaptation of a Korean movie known as "Il Mare" (yes, oddly, the name's Italian), The Lake House is one of my favourite movies and is in my opinion better than the original.

Some have previously commented on the time travel angle and a few odd bits like the dog that belongs to them both at the same time. Well, blame it on Il Mare. These are minor complaints when compared to the greater attention to characterization that The Lake House received over its predecessor.

The charm of this movie--well, you just can't go wrong with Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves. Although their two characters seem to never quite get their timing right, the anticipation every time they almost meet is thrilling (the dance scene, one of the times they do meet, takes my breath away every time). This is definitely one of my favourite "chick flicks."

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Feb. 13 2007
By dee
Format:DVD
I loved this movie. It is a wonderful love story with a very interesting catch - a time warp. You do have to pay attention to the movie because of the time warp, but it just makes you want to watch it again, and again. I have watched it 3 times so far and plan on watching it more. I really enjoyed it. Sandra Bullock is beautiful in this movie and Keanu Reeves, is so darn handsome. I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great romantic movie from a reliable source Sept. 22 2009
Format:DVD
I've been purchasing DVDs from Amazon.ca for over a year now. By far, don't have any complaints. Even though I had to wait for my stuff upto 3 days longer than they estimated, but all the DVDs are of a decent quality, pretty much like new. Plus, I've always been able to find good deals on stuff!

As for the Lake House - I saw this movie before, I liked it very much, that's why I decided to have it in my DVD collection. The idea of the story is that if you really love someone, you CAN change the past from the future. This is still pretty confusing and contradicting to me, but probably that's what keeps me coming back to watch the Lake House. Plus, those two main characters are my most favourite.

A great storyline. A tight, well paced plot and excellent acting. My wife and I watch this one when we need a little pick-me-up and a happy ending.

5.0 out of 5 stars I am just SO sappy! Feb. 21 2007
Format:DVD
Against all odds, I really liked this movie and found it quite charming even though I confess that I had to "get past" the quirkiness of the time warp concept which, early on, had my subconscious nudging me "Hey! wait a minute guys!.....". However, having put that to one side, the performances by Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves were incredibly sweet and I actually became quite captivated by the whole notion of a "magic" mailbox, etc. The cinematography was very well done and, when Alex takes Kate for an architectural tour of Chicago, the walk was much appreciated here!!

This may be corny: There is a tiny scene in which Kate plays chess with Jack (her canine friend). While not particularly necessary to the "plot", I found it to be a touch of reality that provided an anchor - been there, done that! Well - maybe not played chess with my dogs but they ARE my close companions much of the time. Whether we would like to admit it or not, we have all been lonely at some time or other.

I could be wrong but I don't think this movie will thrill too many guys, but what do I know? The main thing (for me) is that I liked it ... three times so far!

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this movie! July 19 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The Lakehouse hasn't always had the best reviews and wasn't a critics' favourite but it's one of my favourite movies. I love both Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves in this mystical love story that spans time and space. They are both 'good people', highly sympathetic characters and I found the storyline intriguing. Okay, it's a chick flick for sure, very romantic ... and one I personally can watch again and again, to find nuances and better understand the timelines.
