The Lake House

Overall B+

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.

Why is The Lake House rated PG? The Lake House is rated PG by the MPAA for some language and a disturbing image

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.
