The Next Best Thing (2000)



Ok, so I obviously have a love for Madonna... her movies... not as much.   She is much more impressive in her videos, some of which I set-jetted below.   Nonetheless, I scouted out some locations for her 2000 flick, The Next Best Thing.

Here are links to other Madonna video or movie locations and shows:
   Borderline
   Evening With Madonna - Smirnoff Nightlife Exchange Project
   GAP commercial
   La Isla Bonita
   Like A Prayer (video)
   Like A Prayer (album)
   Material Girl
   Music
   Next Best Thing
   What It Feels Like For A Girl





First up, the house, which looks pretty much the same but has a new wall to block out the street.

Next up, the restaurant where Madonna eats meat (gasp!)...   Yes, I had to sit in her same exact spot.  No, I didn't eat a burger....

The grocery store.... minor location, but I had to do it and it was only a mile from my hotel....

The school... The tree where Rupert stands is no longer there, but a new one has been recently replanted in the same spot....

And finally, the ending scene on the hilltop street.....
