Did You Know?

Trivia

The address of the building in Chicago at which Sandra Bullock lives is 1620 Racine. This would place it in the same block as the apartment belonging to Sean Connery in The Untouchables (1987) (Connery's character lived at 1634 Racine). See more »

Goofs

Kate and Morgan are in the apartment. Kate is annoyed and stomps over to the bedroom area and breaks loose a piece of the hardwood. Hidden there, in a white paper bag, is the book that Alex retrieved for her when Kate had left it at the train station in 2004. Yet we never see the scene on how Alex could have possibly been able to put the book away under the hardwood floor. See more »

Quotes

Alex: [after he saw her at the subway station in 2004] I don't know if you remember but, we saw each other. That is, I saw you. You never told me... how beautiful you were.
Kate: Well, maybe you saw someone else. That was a bad hair year for me.
Alex: Long brown hair, gentle unguarded eyes...
Kate: OK, OK. You saw me. But I still don't know what you look like.

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!
