Blockbuster Video from “The Holiday”

Dec 23rd, 2014 | By | Category: Movie Locations

I cannot believe that Christmas is only two days away!  This whole month (year, in fact) has flown by!  Sadly, this will be my last post of the season (excluding one that will run on L.A. magazine’s website on Thursday).  I will be taking the rest of the week off to do some last-minute shopping and to celebrate Christmas with my family.  For my final holiday-themed post, I thought it would only be fitting to write about another The Holiday location – the Blockbuster Video […]



The Grill on the Alley from “The Holiday”

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

This past weekend, while wandering through my local Target with the Grim Cheaper, I happened to spot a DVD of fave movie The Holiday on sale for $3.99!  When I saw that the special features included a commentary with director Nancy Meyers and a making-of featurette, I just about flipped my lid and immediately snapped the DVD up.  (Though I have seen The Holiday more times than I can count, because I own it on iTunes, I had never seen any of the special features.)  […]

It’s finally that time of year again, folks!  Time for some Christmas-themed posts!  And I could NOT be more excited.  First up is a locale that I had been searching for for years – the sushi restaurant where Iris Simpkins (Kate Winslet) and Miles (Jack Black) dined towards the end of The Holiday.  During my lengthy search for the eatery, I spent countless hours inputting terms like “sushi restaurant,” “The Holiday” and “filming” into Google, but always came up empty-handed.  Then, this year, I decided […]



Arthur Abbott’s House from “The Holiday”

Dec 22nd, 2011 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Another location from the 2006 movie The Holiday that I set out to track down last week for my Christmas-themed stalking posts was the large Mediterranean-style abode where Arthur Abbott (aka The Misfits’ Eli Wallach) lived.  Thanks to the flick’s production notes, I knew that the property was located somewhere in Brentwood and that it “reflected the glamour of old Hollywood”.  So I spent quite a few fruitless hours searching aerial views of the area before coming up completely empty-handed.  Enter Mike, from MovieShotsLA, who […]



Amanda’s House from “The Holiday”

Jun 15th, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

I thought I’d mix it up a bit today by forgoing blogging about one of the many Pacific Northwest locations that I stalked while in Vancouver and Seattle two weeks ago, in order to write about a residence that can be found right here in the San Gabriel Valley – the mansion which belonged to Amanda (aka Cameron Diaz) in the 2006 romantic comedy The Holiday.  I found this location thanks to fellow stalker Nick, who had done some research on the subject and had […]
