Beeman Park from “Girls Just Want to Have Fun”

Feb 22nd, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

I often get asked if I think that someday down the road I might run out of places that I am passionate about stalking.  That is like asking if I will ever tire of shopping!  The answer is a definitive no!  As long as movies and TV shows continue to be made, this girl will continue a’stalking, passionately so!  Heck, even if Hollywood did cease churning out new films and television series, my To-Stalk List would remain full.  I am constantly discovering new-to-me productions that […]

Westfield Culver City from “Girls Just Want to Have Fun”

Nov 24th, 2015 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Some filming locations are maddeningly elusive.  One that remained a thorn in my side for ages was the mall where Janey Glenn (Sarah Jessica Parker) and Lynne Stone (Helen Hunt) shopped in Girls Just Want to Have Fun, which, for those who haven’t been paying attention over the years, is one of my all-time favorite movies.  Thanks to some help from my friends Owen, from the When Write Is Wrong blog, and Michael, of The Brady Bunch’s Golden Spoon fame, I was finally able to […]

The California Bank Building from “Girls Just Want to Have Fun”

Jun 3rd, 2015 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Since we’re on the subject of Girls Just Want to Have Fun, I thought I would blog about another locale from the movie that I recently hit up – downtown L.A.’s California Bank Building, which masked as the Dance TV (aka DTV) studio in the 1985 flick.  A couple of years back, Chas, from the It’sFilmedThere website, managed to track down the location via a helpful crewmember, but because nothing about the structure matched up to what was shown onscreen, I was never sold on […]

The Georgian Ballroom from “Girls Just Want to Have Fun”

Mar 30th, 2015 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Had you asked me last week, I would have told you that I was an expert on both Pasadena and its filming history.  But something happened on Wednesday afternoon that rocked me to my stalking core.  While writing a blog post for Los Angeles magazine, I got on a bit of a Girls Just Want to Have Fun kick and decided to attempt to track down a few of its unknown locations, one of which was the Lakeview Country Club where Natalie Sands’ (Holly Gagnier) […]

The Barclay Hotel from “As Good As It Gets”

Mar 17th, 2011 | By | Category: Movie Locations

This past weekend, the Grim Cheaper and I re-watched the movie As Good As It Gets, which I had not seen since it first came out in theatres almost 15 years ago, and I am ashamed to admit that I had somehow completely forgotten what a great flick it was!  While watching, I, of course, became a bit obsessed with tracking down some of the Southern California locations featured in it and just about had a heart attack when I read on IMDB’s As Good […]

The Girls Just Want To Have Fun Apartment Building!!

Jul 22nd, 2009 | By | Category: Movie Locations

As I sit here writing this I am in shock – absolute shock.  This morning at around 10 O’clock I got a phone call from fellow stalker Chas who had some news to share with me, some very big news!  Are you all sitting down for this????  Chas was calling me up to tell me that HE HAD FOUND THE GIRLS JUST WANT TO HAVE FUN  APARTMENT BUILDING!   No, that was not a major typo, you did just read that last sentence correctly!!!!  Chas, who I am […]

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun!

Aug 28th, 2008 | By | Category: Movie Locations

I have been an SJP fan since looooooooong before Sex and the City premiered. Back in grade school, my friend Nat introduced me to a little 80s flick starring Sarah Jessica Parker called Girls Just Wanna Have Fun and from that moment on I have been absolutely obsessed. Along with my other fave 80s movie, License to Drive, I literally think I watched Girls Just Wanna Have Fun at least once a week throughout my childhood. For those who have never seen it, Girls Just […]
