Wanna see the real life filming location used for Hotdog Shaped Stand in the movie?

These scenes were actually shot at Tail o' the Pup, located in Los Angeles, S. California. Google Map

A small house in Mar vista was used for the kidnap house. I believe it was on Grand View - 1/2 block south of Washington Blvd. [Thanks to Joni Chadkin]

A home in Bel Aire was used for Danny DeVito's house. [Thanks to Joni Chadkin]

Judge Reinhold drove off the Santa Monica Pier. This pier has been used in countless movies and TV productions and definitely should be visited if you're in the area.

The shopping center was The Beverly Center, just across the street from our featured location.

Can you help? Particularly with Reinhold's house, DeVito's house? Please Update Us

LX Preview

LX is our radical new locations feature that we've been beavering away on.. For years!

Each location will have it's own page with then/now pictures, maps, StreetView, discovery story and the most detailed explanations on how the location was used. Most importantly, the locations will have a status that shows whether they are verified correct and by whom. We are working with the actual locations managers or other crew where possible. The whole thing will be very interactive and you will, of course, be able to update everything.

We are pleased to be able to bring you a sneak peek at what LX locations will be available for Ruthless People upon release:

Hotdog Shaped Stand
Reinhold's house
DeVito's house
