If I read one more negative review of this movie that takes it to task for being "implausible," I'm afraid I will lose it completely.
I have to ask myself what these same critics (assuming they're old enough to remember it) would have said about virtually any episode of the Rod Serling classic "Twilight Zone." I think it's safe to say most of those plots were based on fairly "implausible" happenings, in comparison to our real-life, day-to-day existence.
And I'm sure Richard Donner's "Superman" movie would have felt their wrath as well, since everyone knows people can't fly.
"Implausible." Good grief.
"The Lake House" is a romantic fairy tale -- and a darned good one, too. It's NOT confusing or hard to understand at all, assuming the viewer has more than two ounces of comprehension skill.
To me, the recent film it seems closest to in subject matter and style is "Frequency," which I also enjoyed tremendously.
And yes -- call me crazy, but the things that happen in "Frequency" are fairly "implausible" too.
And, oh yeah -- since I don't really believe angels have to jump through ridiculous hoops to get their wings, I'm guessing these same Scrooges have no use for "It's a Wonderful Life," either.
