The Lake House is another spin on “Back to the Future” except the time lag is only two years and it’s a love story between a career-minded, love-seeking woman doctor (who has a on-again/off-again lawyer boyfriend, Morgan) and a lonely architect man with family issues. The vehicle of communication is the good old mail box of the Lake House, architected by Alex’s father. It’s a beautiful house with glasses all over.
Sandra Bullock (Kate) and Keanu Reeves (Alex Wyler) made this love story come alive. The two-year time lag makes the love story quite possible. Of course, nothing makes the story more interesting by allowing Kate to rescue Alex and change the future. I watched this entire movie on my iPhone during babysitting. I guess this movie succeeded in keeping my eyes glued on the tiny screen for a very long time.
