so there's this movie
the lake house
that my sister tricked me into watching
sappy as hell
the movie starts with this lady named cate eating lunch with her mom. All of a sudden this guy gets hit by a bus and she runs and tries to save him cuz she's a doctor but he dies anyways. So of course since they included this, you know that it is the guy that they showed her talking to in the preview (alex). Her doctor friend tells her to go away somewhere that she likes, and she's all "ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, kay" and goes to the lake house (hence the name). Then she finds a letter in her mailbox from this guy who says that he's 2 years in the past. A whole complicated correspondence ensues. Then he tells her that he's going to meet her two years from tomorrow (which for her is just tomorrow). Then he doesnt and she gets all pissy and decides that she's not going to write to him anymore. Some complicated stuff happened that i didnt get at all, and he finds a letter that she wrote that talked about her eating lunch at a certain place on Valentine's Day and he wants to go there and then she finally figures out that it was him who died. So she sends him a letter that says to wait two years and she'll be there and the little flag on the mailbox goes down, and she looks up and he's there, kiss kiss, etc.
So here's what i don't get: the only reason she ever went to the lakehouse was because he died. but then he never died, so she never went to the lakehouse, so they never talked, so they couldnt possibly have ever met.
WHY AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO THINKS OF THESE THINGS??
