Los Angeles Real Estate Quiz: Can You Identify These Movie Homes?

They're the hardest-working homes in showbiz.  Each of these unassuming Los Angeles houses was prominently featured in a popular movie.  Do you recognize them?  Can you name them all?  

1. Father of the Bride — This house really is in a small town, on a quiet street in Pasadena, just as George Banks says at the beginning of the movie.  Fun fact: this location was used to film most of the outdoor scenes  — such as the basketball game and the wedding — but shots of the front facade were actually of an (eerily) similar house, also in Pasadena.  Via Huffington Post.

2. Pretty Woman — Yes, you too can stay at the Hotel Las Palmas, where Richard Gere climbs up the fire escape to "rescue" Julia Roberts in the final scene. Rooms are available by the night or by the week.  As the movie says, "Welcome to Hollywood!"

3. The Graduate — In the movie, Mrs. Robinson's white house is actually painted brick which, all these years later, has been restored to the original red.  Via I'm Not a Stalker.

4. The Big Lebowski — The Dude's bungalow is in Venice near Abbot Kinney.  But does it come with a rug that really ties the room together? Via Realtor.com.

5. Back to the Future — Lorraine Baines' Pasadena house looks just as good as it did back in 1985.  Via Cinema Lifestyle.

Tell me, what are your favorite movie homes?
