Timing is everything!
16 June 2006 | by (Atlanta, Georgia USA) – See all my reviews

This was great popcorn fare with your significant other! Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves are once again a great on screen couple, although they weren't often on screen together.

Lots of twists and turns to keep you guessing and enough closeups to satisfy all. Christopher Plummer was an interesting supporting actor and as always commanded the screen. As a matter of fact there were a lot of interesting supporting actors, one from the TV series "24", there was Jack the dog, and of course the Lakehouse. I'm sorry I forgot to mention the architecture of Chicago and the mailbox.

The whole time issue kept us talking long after the movie was over. Don't get too caught up in the plausibility aspect just enjoy it as a romantic fantasy, we all need some escape now and then. Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves fans won't be disappointed and I am sure they may pick up a few new ones along the way.

A great release to end the Hollywood drought of late. Go see it!
