The last time we saw Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock together, they had a big bomb ticking away under their asses while they commandeered public transportation (Speed
). It took quite some time, but they are now reunited in The Lake House
, a sweet if ultimately silly love story with a time-travel twist. Its not people time-traveling in this film, but letters placed in a mailbox. Alex (Reeves) is living in a lake house designed by his father, and he discovers a letter from alleged former tenant Kate (Bullock) requesting that her mail be forwarded to her new address. The odd thing about the letter is that it is dated 2006, and Alex is occupying the year 2004. The two leads are likable in this silly movie that ends up tugging on the heart strings. Reeves and Bullock dont spend too much screen time together in this one, but the moments they do share are quite magical.
