The Lake House

Lake_houseLast Night I went to see the film The Lake House with my friend. The experience was night and day from my trip to the movies the week before. Granted we were not going to see the blockbuster hit of the summer, but hardley anyone was at the theater today.

The story is set in Chicago, which is where my friend is from, so she enjoyed the scenery and I think it made her a little homesick. It definitely qualifies as a chick flick primarily because of the story content and you probably will shed a tear or two if you're prone to doing that. Which I am, so I did. One of the things I noticed about this film is that the characters actually had character. It seems like films rarely ever take the time to develop characters anymore. It's Sandra Bullock and Keaneu Reeves, but only one time was I ever thinking SPEED and that was mainly a visual thing at the end of the movie.

If you are a fan of architecture, you are likely to enjoy the side story and cinematography. I'm guessing the Lake House was based on another book I have not read. There is also some mystery to the movie, which is why I am a terrible movie date. I am always making predictions about what I think is going to happen next.

For the guys, I should mention that this is not the kind of chick flick that will necessarily win you points with your girl unless you really are the love of her life. If that aspect of your relationship is unclear, you may want to avoid this movie. Especially if you have any reason to think that your date is still carrying a flame for someone else.

I've been wanting to see this movie since I'm a huge Keanu Reeves fan. I also get emotional at movies so I think I'll probably enjoy it. Thanks for the review!

Keanu Reeves is sometimes so bland. I keep expecting him to say, "Whoah!" and "Dude!" all the time. Was he any good? He can make or break a movie depending on how he's cast.

Keanu was looking extremely attractive and very undudelike. The only thing that keeps me from adding him to my imaginary boyfriend line-up is the fact that tis sexual preference has always been in question. Why exactly that matters as far as imaginary boyfriends go I don't know. It just does.


I always felt Keanu was "a friend in my head" as this deejay out here in NYC puts it. I'm friends in my head with Drew Barrymore, Lindsay Lohan, Britney, Keanu, Orlando Bloom and sometimes Johnny Depp.

Oh ya, I think of William Shatner That way. ;)
