average rating MPAA rating watch rent buy
The Blues Brothers (1980)
  Not just Chicago, but the whole Chicagoland area, including a well-destroyed mall and hundreds of well-destroyed CPD cars.
The Fugitive (1993)
  The Loop has never looked better, or more soullessly evil, than it does in this one.
Risky Business (1983)
  "Have you ever made love on a real train, Joel"?
High Fidelity (2000)
  Stephen Frears moved the location from London to Chicago and perfectly captured the spirit of the bored 30somethings that inhabit Lincoln Park.
The Untouchables (1987)
  Old school Chicago. That bar that blew up under the El tracks was 3 blocks from my apartment.
Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986)
  The Sears Tower, Wrigley Field, Chez Paul. Too much to do in one day but Ferris pulls it off and gets back to the suburbs before his parents do.
The Color of Money (1986)
  Filmed in some of the pleasantly seedy bars along Western Ave. Look for my uncle as an extra!
Backdraft (1991)
  Chicago's bravest, and some good fire effects, too.
Eight Men Out (1988)
  More old school Chicago, and one of the best baseball movies ever made.
Stir of Echoes (1999)
  Just happened to be set in Chicago, I guess, but gives a good feel for the brownstones on the Northwest side.
Chicago (2002)
  The only thing Chicago about this is the name, but it's still a great movie.
The Breakfast Club (1985)
  All you see is the converted gym at New Trier High, so I guess it's not *really* about Chicago, but how could I leave John Hughes off the list?
