"The Lake House"

Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock raced the streets on a bus rigged to explode in "Speed." For their reunion, Reeves and Bullock spin their wheels with a tear-jerker whose convolutions elicit more chuckles than tears. Bullock plays a doctor who moves out of her cosy lake house, and Reeves is an architect who moves in after her.

Their perfunctory correspondence about forwarding mail turns them into romantic pen pals, but then they discover they’re caught in a time-bending mystery: She’s writing from 2006 and he’s answering back from 2004. The DVD has seven deleted scenes. It would have been nice to have commentary from the filmmakers.
