Kim’s New House from “L!fe Happens”

Apr 16th, 2014 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Once I had tracked down the main house used in L!fe Happens (you can read that post here), as well as Auntie Em’s Kitchen, which also appeared in the flick (you can read that post here), I became more than a little obsessed with finding the cottage that Kim (Krysten Ritter) rented towards the end of the 2011 rom-com.  Ironically enough, I didn’t even like L!fe Happens all that much, but it was filmed in L.A. and knowing that there are undiscovered SoCal locations out […]



Auntie Em’s Kitchen from “L!fe Happens”

Apr 1st, 2014 | By | Category: Movie Locations

I recently re-watched the 2011 romantic comedy L!fe Happens and I have to say that I enjoyed it much more the second time around.  One of the locations featured in it – Auntie Em’s Kitchen in Eagle Rock – I had actually recognized during my first viewing.  I used to drive by the place frequently when I lived in Pasadena, but, despite hearing rave reviews, never dropped in.  So I decided that it was high time I did so and headed on over there a […]



The “L!fe Happens” House

Mar 7th, 2014 | By | Category: Movie Locations

While getting my hair blown out at the Pasadena Blo-Out Lounge (one of my very favorite places) a couple of weeks ago, I caught a portion of the 2011 romantic comedy L!fe Happens, which I had never previously heard of.  Thanks to its obvious L.A. locales, the flick piqued my interest.  A rom-com filmed in Los Angeles that I didn’t know about?  How is that possible?  I quickly amended the situation by forcing the Grim Cheaper to watch it on Netflix a few nights later.  […]



Joe Jost’s from “Win a Date with Tad Hamilton”

Jan 14th, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

As I’ve mentioned countless times before, Win a Date with Tad Hamilton is one of my all time favorite movies.  And I have long been dying to stalk the restaurant which stood in for Lil’ Dickens, the Frazier’s Bottom bar where Rosalie (aka Kate Bosworth), Pete (aka Topher Grace), Cathy (aka Ginnifer Goodwin), and Tad (aka Josh Duhamel – sigh!) hung out in the flick.  In real life, that bar is named Joe Jost’s and it is actually located in Long Beach, California, a good […]



JMJ Ranch from “Win a Date with Tad Hamilton”

Dec 4th, 2009 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Another location that Mike, from MovieShotsLA, and I stalked during our day in the the Valley together a few months back was the Fraziers Bottom farm that movie star Tad Hamilton purchased in fave film Win a Date with Tad Hamilton.  In real life, Tad’s property is named JMJ Ranch and it is not located anywhere near Fraziers Bottom, West Virginia, but about two thousand miles West in Thousand Oaks, California.  As so often happens when searching for filming sites, I actually came across this […]



The Win A Date With Tad Hamilton Grocery Store

Aug 25th, 2009 | By | Category: Movie Locations

One movie location that I have wanted to stalk for what seems like forever is the L.A. area grocery store that stood in for the Fraziers Bottom Piggly Wiggly Supermarket in fave romantic comedy Win A Date With Tad Hamilton.   Josh Duhamel!  Sigh!    I was so obsessed with finding this location, in fact, that a few years ago when I happened upon a real Piggly Wiggly store while visiting a small town in Arkansas, I just about died of excitement!  Because Piggly Wigglys can only be found in the […]



The Win A Date With Tad Hamilton House

Jul 21st, 2009 | By | Category: Movie Locations

I am forever indebted to fellow stalker Chas who has succeeded in finding a location that has eluded me for the past few years, a location that has been at the very top of my ultimate stalking list ever since the movie it was featured in first premiered in January of 2004.  The location in question?  Rosalee Futch, aka Kate Bosworth’s, charming little Craftsman home from fave movie Win A Date With Tad Hamilton.  It was just a few months ago that I found out that Win A Date  […]



The W Hotel

Apr 9th, 2009 | By | Category: 90210 & Beverly Hills, 90210 Filming Locations

 

This weekend while out doing some stalking of L.A.’s Westside, I dragged my boyfriend to the W Hotel, which was featured in both fave movie Win A Date With Tad Hamilton and the new 90210.  I have wanted to stalk the W ever since I first watched Win A Date  over four years ago, but somehow never got around to it until this past Sunday.  I actually can’t believe that I waited so long to stalk the modern style hotel, but, as I’ve said before, in L.A. there’s just […]
