Big Business (1988)



Don't know why I never got around to doing this one, since it's a pretty easy location in New York... and a pretty funny movie....

Seth Green!




Set-jetter and movie fan, Chris Mazie, sent this great pic of him recreating a scene in the movie!

WarGames (1983)


My Commodore 64 never did the things Matthew Broderick's computer did back in the day.... Here are some locations from WarGames.   First up, his house located in Los Angeles...

His high school is located in El Segundo and is recognizable in many movies, most noticeably Superbad and Joan of Arcadia....

American Dreamer (1984)


Besides Poltergeist, this is my favorite Jobeth Williams film.  (I don't see her enough nowadays.)   Although much of the film takes place in Paris, it starts out with her family house, which is located in Long Beach.   Two years later, this house will become better known as Ferris Bueller's home...

Director Rick Rosenthal!

Young Doctors in Love (1982)


This one still makes me laugh... don't ask.   The hospital exterior is actually the former Park Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles, which is used in many films... Naked Gun , The Mask, Bugsy, Prom Night, Less Than Zero...

Across the street is the park which has my favorite scene!
