Winchestertonfieldville, Iowa


Wow, that's a mouth full! (That's what she said!) Inappropriate comments aside, remember Adam Sandler's mediocre comedy from 2002?  Well if you don't, let this pleasant picture refresh your memory.

"Let me touch your feet."

If you remember Mr. Deeds, you will recall Winona Ryder's character Babe and her ridiculous behavior (wow, I'm sure they sat around the room brainstorming for days on that character's name).  She even fabricated a story about growing up in a small town with a big house, a tire swing and a neighborhood pharmacy down the street.  The town in question is Winchestertonfieldville, Iowa.  These shenanigans were done to hide the fact that she was a reporter and trying to get the inside scoop on Mr. Deeds.

Well, this is a real house and nope, it's not in Iowa.  It's in Pasadena along with many other filming spot gems.  The paint on the house has changed, and the door is no longer red.  It's in a quiet part of town overgrown with trees and children playing in the yards.  What I enjoy about Pasadena and South Pasadena is that they still seem to have that older feel where you can leave your bike laying in the front yard until after dinner.  You can sleep with your window open and not have to worry about some a-hole breaking in.  Although, these days you never know.

I enjoy spending time over there, and now you have another reason to visit.

The movie trailer for the 2002 Adam Sandler comedy can be seen here.

The Winchestertonfieldville house is located at:
