I spent many days around the lake and the surrounding forest area. I was really surprised the forest service allowed the house to be built.

Sandra is the most beautiful woman that shares this world with me. Even at a seemingly great distance we see the same sun and moon and breathe the same air. Oh well another place and time.

Guess I’ve watched it 4 or 5 times trying to figure it out, but more importantly so I can have a big dose of Keanu. Thanks FOO for mentioning the unexplainable attic. When you look at the house from the outside the attic couldn’t possibly exist – there are no solid walls on the roof, just glass, yet when Alex climbs in the attic it’s all solid. I find this extremely annoying. Thankyou for your site Julia, it’s the greatest fun I have in the net! Angela, Canberra Australia.

I am looking specifically for anything about the company who made the iron bed that Sandra Bullock had in this movie. The one with the curved roman arch headboard and footboard. Any info at all would be greatly appreciated. Have been doing random searches for years, and can’t seem to find anything similar.

The house itself was very cool, but as someone wrote, the Regency style in it? I can’t see it. To me, “Regency” is Netherfield Hall in “Pride and Prejudice”!

My mother had a real lake house in Southern Mass., on a beautiful lake, painstakingly restored by my father from a 1930′s “cottage” to a comfortable, 80′s mix of off-white carpet and casement windows on two sides. It, too, was on land (who would build one in the water?!).

I love (almost) anything Keanu Reeves does, from “Bill & Ted” to the surfing FBI agent in “Point Break”, to the ditzy “That Todd” in “Parenthood” to his winning role as the amorous doctor in “Something’s Gotta Give”. My exceptions would be films like “Bram Stoker’s Dracula” (period stuff? NOT his strong suit, including “Dangerous Liaisons”).

Sandra Bullock has an even stronger negative effect on me, partly because, other than her role in “Hope Floats” she simply does not play well, romantically. The house itself was a better “star”. But it seemed too cold, especially for a northern climate like Cook County’s, making the fake glass mansion on Cape Cod in “Sleeping With the Enemy” seem almost cozy!

I was not troubled by the time glitches. No one who read Kurt Vonnegut’s “Slaughterhouse Five” and really loved it would ever question The Chronosynclastic Infundibulum (aka, “Coming unstuck” in time). I think that this is what happened to Alex and Kate, but unlike Billy Pilgrim, they did NOT end up on Tralfamodor, but in Chicago. Hmmm…someone like John Cusack’s character, “Rob” in “High Fidelity” might say, “What’s the diff.?”!

But then I realize that certain privileges will be completely obliterated. You’re life will be just like the TV Show “Big Brother”, everyone is watching. Second concern is security, what can a glass do? And Lastly, abrupt changes in the weather, seriously, below zero degrees.
