The Blues Brothers (1980)
12345678910
  Not just Chicago, but the whole Chicagoland area, including a well-destroyed mall and hundreds of well-destroyed CPD cars.
The Fugitive (1993)
12345678910
  The Loop has never looked better, or more soullessly evil, than it does in this one.
Risky Business (1983)
12345678910
  "Have you ever made love on a real train, Joel"?
High Fidelity (2000)
12345678910
  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)
12345678910
  Old school Chicago. That bar that blew up under the El tracks was 3 blocks from my apartment.
Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986)
12345678910
  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)
12345678910
  Filmed in some of the pleasantly seedy bars along Western Ave. Look for my uncle as an extra!
Backdraft (1991)
12345678910
  Chicago's bravest, and some good fire effects, too.
Eight Men Out (1988)
12345678910
  More old school Chicago, and one of the best baseball movies ever made.
Stir of Echoes (1999)
12345678910
  Just happened to be set in Chicago, I guess, but gives a good feel for the brownstones on the Northwest side.
Chicago (2002)
12345678910
  The only thing Chicago about this is the name, but it's still a great movie.
The Breakfast Club (1985)
12345678910
  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?
