Southern California locations where
If you remember this 1997 romantic comedy, it's most likely because you're either a Keri Russell / "Felicity" fan,
"Eight Days a Week" was filmed almost entirely on a single residential block,
And you're probably wondering where that neighborhood is.
Well, it wasn't a studio backlot. This was an actual residential neighborhood in the L.A. area,
So, let's take a look at each of those six houses, and find out where they are...
( Do bear in mind that these are private homes, so don't trespass on their property,
First, we'll start with Erica's house, where Erica (Keri Russell) lived with her born again parents,
That house is located at 159 N. Primrose Avenue, in the city of Monrovia, California.
Monrovia is located in northeast Los Angeles, between Glendale and Pasadena.
Here is a Google StreetView of the house. As you can see, it hasn't changed much over the years.
Next, let's move on to Peter's house, where Peter (Joshua Schaefer) lived with
That house is located across the street from Erica's place, at 156 N. Primrose Avenue.
Here is a Google StreetView of Peter's house. As you can see, except for the landscaping,
it also hasn't changed much since 1997.
And then there's the house of Peter's oversexed friend, Matt (whose comic attempt
You don't see that much of the house in the movie - even though it may be the largest home
Matt's house is located two houses north of Peter's home, at 172 N. Primrose Avenue.
Here is a Google StreetView of Matt's house. They've added a white fence since the filming,
but otherwise, it's also essentially the same as it was in the movie.
As Peter is camped out in Erica's yard, he has nothing better to do than to keep an eye on
The Sad Man's house is located at 160 N. Primrose Ave, in between Peter & Matt's homes.
It isn't easy to see the Sad Man's house in the movie, because the one-story house is
And as you can see from this Google StreetView of the house, those redwood trees are still there.
Ms. Lewis is a local cougar who (unsuccessfully) puts the moves on Peter.
But we finally get a good view of the full house late in the movie, when
Ms. Lewis's house is located at 151 N. Primrose Ave, two houses south of Erica's home.
(Of the six homes, it's the farthest house to the south.)
It has been painted a new color, and the trees have grown bushier, but as you can see
from this Google StreetView
of the house, the walkway still sports those brick stripes, and the house itself hasn't changed much.
The final house belongs to "the crazy lady" , and we don't get to see much of it,
It turns out that she has perfectly good explanations for her seemingly-odd behavior.
The Crazy Lady's house is located at 153 N. Primrose Ave, between Erica & Ms. Lewis's homes
But as you can see from this Google StreetView of the house, it appears to have changed
the most of the six houses on this block; they have painted it blue and may
have added siding as well. It's hard to tell, because we never get a really
clear view of the house in the movie. Fortunately, the #153 is visible on
the porch, as you can see in the screencap above.
