Horrible Bosses - Filming Locations
Part 3

 The Southern California locations where
"Horrible Bosses" was filmed.




Driving over bridge

1:01:24: Continuing the stakeouts, we see Kurt parked outside the home of Dale's horrible boss,
Dr. Julia Harris
, a sex-obsessed dentist (Jennifer Aniston). Kurt has binoculars in hand, and
watches as she leaves the house, ogling her rear.  Later, she deliberately strips in her window,
and Kurt winds up sleeping with her. He's convinced that will end Dale's harrassment -- it doesn't).


This house is at 2361 Midvale Ave, in West Los Angeles.  That's just northwest of the
Westside Pavilion mall
, and about a mile and a half south of the UCLA campus.

[ Warning: This is a private home.  Do not trespass on their property,
knock on their door, or do anything that might disturb the residents
. ]

Here is a matching Google StreetView of the house.

         





Running red light

1:05:42 - After seeing his boss gun down Kurt's boss, Nick flees from the scene in his car, and
proceeds to run through a red light and gets his photo taken by a red light camera.


That intersection is a long way from that boss's house. They filmed it down in the South Bay, at the
 intersection of W. Carson Street and Anza Ave, in a  residential section of Torrance. CA.

He is speeding east on Carson Street, as he passes through Anza Ave.

(In real life, there is no red-light camera at this intersection.)

Here is a matching Google StreetView of the intersection.

         



Car Chase

1:21:49: After the guys confront Mr. Harkin (Kevin Spacy) about his murder, they find themselves
being chased through traffic by Harkin, who's intent on killing them. (And all the while,
Dale is busy in the back seat having lame phone sex with his horrible boss, Julia.)

This chase scene was filmed on the 1500 - 1600 blocks of Brand Boulevard, in Burbank, CA.,
past a collection of car dealerships known as "the Brand Boulevard of Cars".

In the shot above, they are speeding north on Brand, north of Cerritos Avenue.

(The Chevrolet signs you see ahead belong to Allen Gwynn Chevrolet, at 1400 S. Brand.
)

Here is a Google StreetView of the street.

         



1:23:34: Just as they are getting away from Harkin, their Nav-Guide ("Gregory") remotely
turns off their engine, causing their car to stall out in a rough part of town.


Their car is then rammed by Harkin's car, who proceeds to hold them at gunpoint.
But instead of killing them, he decides to frame them for the murder.


As part of the frame-up, Spacy shoots himself in the leg, just before the police arrive on the scene.

Unfortunately for him, he didn't realize that Gregory was recording the entire conversation...

This scene was shot right next to the 6th Street bridge (where we saw them driving earlier
in the film).  They are on a small side street called E. 6th, that runs alongside and below the
south side of the bridge.  They are at the northwest corner of E. 6th & Santa Fe Avenue
(just two blocks north of the bar where they tried to hire a hit-man).

(Here is a Google StreetView panorama of the corner.)
