The Lake House (1 star)

The Lake House imageSpeed co-stars Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves reteam for romance in director Alejandro Agresti‘s remake of the Korean film Siworae, exploring a mysterious mailbox that somehow bridges time. After moving away from her peaceful lakeside home, a lonely physician (Bullock) begins writing letters to the frustrated architect (Reeves) who now occupies the building, only to discover that they’re living two years apart.

Geoff’s Comments: After having drained my Netflix queue of documentaries and stuff that leaves my wife snoring, I made this grand gesture. Half way through I was asking, outloud, ‘why am i trying to apply logic here?’. This is definitely a Lifetime inspired script, irritatingly filled with plot holes that make no sense, and the ending was painfully foreshadowed early in the film. But you know what, even with that, she enjoyed the romance, and that was the goal :-).
