My idea of a romantic gimmick is the one in Groundhog Day. Granted, that inspired piece of pop Buddhism was about a media striver reconfiguring his whole life by living the same 24 hours over and over again. But it also allowed him to fix every dunderheaded mistake he made in courting his true love - each awkward feint, every sorry piece of bravado, any misplaced emphasis and all the bone-headed declarations of his alpha-male worth. The modest gimmick behind the romance of The Lake House is a mailbox that functions as a time portal.

We pick things up in Dallas, where Sarah Newlin's sister, Amber, is cured and has a totally different outlook on life and sisterly love. Pam, Eric and Mr. Gus are trying their best to get info out of her, but Amber tells them that her sister no longer is Sarah; she's Numi. She's changed and she's also the antidote. That's when Mr. Gus gets really excited. If Sarah's the antidote, she's worth a lot of money. Amber should give her up for the cash. They try to remind Amber that Sarah is responsible for Hep-V, which killed her boyfriend.

Most people don't get a cheering crowd complete with photographers and presents of Dom Perignon from their builder when they move in to a new house, but then most people aren't the very first residents of one of Howard County's most expensive communities. On Friday, Bill Sembler and his wife, Kristen Bailey, became the first residents of Stone Lake, an upscale, 137-acre gated community southeast of Columbia, near Gorman Road and Interstate 95. Townhouses in the community like the one the couple bought sell for more than $500,000 and the developer expects to get more than $1 million for single-family homes.

Mona isn't going to let her “best friend's” mom go to jail for a murder she didn't commit, Hanna wants to post bail for her mother and Emily just wants to enjoy her birthday. It's "Pretty Little Liars," so the odds of any of that happening successfully, are very slim. In the interrogation room, Mona shares with a new (unnamed) Detective the moments that led up to the murder of Detective Wilden. After sharing that she was the one who shot him two (not three) times, Mona thinks she has enough to land her behind bars for murder ... not Ashley.

ANTIBES, France-- --Hearing Keanu Reeves imitate a Jewish grandmother might surprise you. Hearing him talk about staying in one place is downright shocking. "Oy, you get older, you want to settle down," the famously itinerant actor says, sounding more like a bad Catskills comic. Reeves, 41, is in a place that many of us would like to be: stinking rich -- thanks to his 15 percent take of Matrix sequel ticket sales. He has not worked in a year, content to watch the fruits of his labor hit the screen this summer: the time-travel romantic drama The Lake House, which opens today, and the sci-fi adaptation of A Scanner Darkly coming next month.

Like its film namesake, Casablanca, a Deep Creek Lake vacation home, has it all: exotic locale, adventures all around and an interior soon to include Rick's Cafe alongside a basement pool table. Homeowners Rick and Ann Schofield have decorated their lakefront chalet with framed posters and other memorabilia from the famous film. But they also plan to finish a walkout basement by adding two more bedrooms and baths and a whimsical version of the legendary bar. "Everyone comes to Rick's place," Ann Schofield says.

In the future, let's hope we can leave the word "trick" out of love stories or sex comedies unless it refers to a prostitute's client. The Lake House, in which a mailbox serves as a time portal for two lovers (Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock) is the latest in a series of gimmick-ridden romances. The increasing absurdity of the trick dashes any genuine emotion as the movie goes on. At the screening I went to, the gentleman in front of me turned around to me and my friends and asked whether we'd noticed that the film ended in a way that made its opening action, even on its own terms, impossible.
