If Hollywood stopped making movies about high school reunions and the big city guy returning to his small hometown, I don't think anyone would care. Stillwater, Minnesota was turned into Knights Ridge, Massachusetts, the fictional small hometown in Beautiful Girls. Tommy (Matt Dillon), Paul (Michael Rapaport) and two other guys whose faces (but not their names) you would recognize have never left this fictional small town and drink frequently at The Johnson Inn.

The Marine General Store on the St. Croix north of Stillwater was used as the exterior of their favorite bar. The interior scenes were shot at Winfield Potters, a former restaurant in St. Anthony Main in Minneapolis.
