Wow! “Lady in the Water” is a well-written, wonderful fantasy-drama that captivates the imagination. M. Night Shyamalan has done such a wonderful job with this film. It is very entertaining, funny in spots, and the story line is very original. There is one character in the film that works out with weights but he only works out one side of his body. It is hilarious! Shyamalan creates many other interesting characters that live at the apartment complex that add many funny moments to the film.
This is the type of movie that Dove has been saying that family audiences want. A well written, directed, acted, edited drama that is free from graphic sex, violence, nudity, and foul language. Dove rated this at a 12+ because of the overall theme and some content that would frighten younger children. I found “Lady in the Water” to be very refreshing and entertaining. Go ahead and take the family for a dip into this fantasy.
