Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock are my favourite on-screen couple. After taking a bus-ride with Speed, Mr Constantine and Ms Congeniality finally reunite after 12 years. Tell me about waiting.

"The same day. 2 years apart. Can this be happening?"

In this movie about waiting and lost chances, they play Alex and Kate who have fallen in love but are separated by... time. Both of them are occupants of the Lake House two years part. In a strange twist of fate, Alex (in Year 2004) corresponds with Kate (in Year 2006) via a mailbox by the house.

Not logical? Doesn’t make any sense at all. "Why don’t they just meet or find some other means to communicate?" You do not have to bother too much by it.

Love knows no boundaries. The Lake House is a feel-good piece as you take the love journey of the two as they take walks 2 years apart, share the same interest, or find companionship in each other. If you never get the same refreshing feeling in other Hollywood movies, that is because it is based on the Korean weeper Il Mare.

The two never acted better, perhaps because they find great connection with each other too. One thing for sure is, I do not like the ending. But leaving all the loopholes aside, you will enjoy this slow walk with them (and that very cute dog).

The Lake House - A sweet piece to share with the one you love.
