1. Definitely, Maybe -> Central Park
A rom-com, set in New York! Starring Rachel Weisz and Colin Firth.
2. The Tourist -> Bryant Park
An everyman story that transports you back to that first Secret Sex Club you joined with your lawyer and the subsequent kidnapping and fraud accusations. Sigh. Starring Hugh Jackman and Ewan McGregor.
3. I Am Legend -> Washington Square Park
Seriously, we don’t care how good this movie is supposed to be: they need to get the crap out of Washington Square Park. Those all-night floodlights are freaking us out and we tripped over a bloody “corpse” the other night and almost peed our pants. Starring Will Smith.
4. Then She Found Me -> Brooklyn
If we had to watch any city other than Philadelphia play Philadelphia it would have to be Brooklyn. Or maybe Boston. Starring Helen Hunt.
5. Ta Ra Rum Pum -> Brooklyn College
A Bollywood rom-com, set in New York! Starring Rani Mukherjee.
6. American Gangster -> Brooklyn S. Marine Terminal
Russell Crowe is waiting for his man/twenty-six dollars in his hand/up on Lexington, 125/feeling sick and dirty, more dead than alive; he’s waiting for his man/Hey, white boy, what you doin’ uptown? We don’t know — maybe throwing a phone at your head. Starring Crowe and Denzel Washington.
