Still shot from the movie: The Lake House.

The Lake House

After architect Alex Wyler (Keanu Reeves) moves into The Lake House, he finds a note from the previous tenant, curiously dated 2006. Writing to Dr. Kate Forster (Sandra Bullock), he carefully explains it is only 2004. At first she thinks he's joking--but eventually she realizes that somehow the mailbox is enabling her to communicate with someone in another time. Get the movie review and more. »

Why Is The Lake House Rated PG?

Adults and teens looking for a little cinematic romance without sexual content will likely be pleased with this PG-rated love story. An unmarried couple that appears to be living together, a short scene with a woman in a cleavage-revealing top, and a few kisses are the only elements contributing to sexual content. Language is also tame, with a few mild profanities, a scatological expletive and terms of deity. A pedestrian is killed after being struck by a bus (we see the body after the incident) and a couple of traumatic moments in a hospital are included. Perhaps the most concerning content issue are the many scenes of social drinking in bars and homes, however no one appears intoxicated.
