google mapIt's almost impossible to spend a day wandering around Manhattan and not run into a building that you recognize from a movie - the city is full of landmarks that Hollywood has long loved to spotlight. But where, exactly, is that castle-looking thing from The Fisher King? Or the cool office building that was in Zoolander? Ooooh and what about the antiques store from You've Got Mail? Where's that? Well, friend, wonder no more.

A clever, computer-nerdy (and I say that with the utmost respect) movie-lover has made a Google maps mashup that combines specific movie locations with both general and specific maps. Obviously the list isn't an exhaustive one, but it's fun to use the front page to play movie location roulette - just click on random pointers and see what was filmed in your neighborhood.
