The Lake House

The Lake House (2006)

11 mistakes

New this month Plot hole: When Kate went to the aid of the man lying in the street, she was very upset about his death. Would she not have got his name being that she works in a hospital? Also she could have easily Googled him in 2006 to find out where he was or that he had died already. It seemed an obvious ending that she would save his life to change history.

Continuity mistake: During the scene when Alex and Mona are riding in the truck with Jack the dog in the back end, the dog vanishes during several shots in which she should be visible.

Continuity mistake: When Bullock is warning Reeves of the coming winter blizzard, she is looking through pictures that depicted her and her friends enjoying the snow. She then turns to the dog and asks "Remember that day? You were not happy". However it's revealed that both characters have the same dog, given to Bullock's boyfriend by Reeves, so when the snow happened in Reeves' time - 2004 - the dog was with him.

Plot hole: Kate is in the future and has named the dog Jack and informs Alex of this in a letter, which he receives in a magic time-travel mailbox. Alex adopts this same dog in the past, before the dog has ever met Kate. Jack tests out the name "Jack" on the dog, and the dog reacts to this name. The dog should not know this name as it hasn't yet met Kate. This is backwards. Alex should have been the one to tell Kate of a name he gave to the dog, and she should have been the one to test it on the dog.

Factual error: When Kate is at Il Mare waiting for Alex, she straightens the knives at his place. The knives are set incorrectly, with the blades facing away from the plate. The fanciest restaurant in Chicago would never make this mistake.

Continuity mistake: When Sandra Bullock is at the table in her mother's kitchen, she has her hand to her chin during a close-up, but when the camera angle changes, both hands are on the table.

Other mistake: In the hospital, when Alex's father takes the cup of coffee, it is obvious that there is nothing in the cup. He tilts it quite far back - if it had been full of coffee, most of it would have poured down his chest.

Continuity mistake: In the lunch scene where Sandra is showing her mom the letter she says the year is 2006. The poster behind her is advertising tickets for the year 2004.

Revealing mistake: When Kate kisses Morgan in front of 1620 N. Racine, the camera moves up through the branches of a tree. You can see one of the lower branches shake when it is bumped by the crane.

Continuity mistake: During the opening credits, Kate leaves the Lake House via the kitchen, where we see the indoor tree is branches only-no leaves. Then from her car she looks back to the house, where we now see that tree is covered in orange leaves.

Revealing mistake: Kate's birthday is July 10th. When she is (with long hair) outside on the patio with Alex, you can see their breath as they talk, and there is not a living thing in the back yard, it's all dormant (as in late fall/winter).
