It's not Main Line bashing; certainly not on my part, as I really enjoy that area. Have you even seen the movie? It's a classic.
BTW, shouldn't it be "laaaaaaaame"? Not "lameeeeeeeeee".
Also, when I cite Philadelphia films, how could I omit Rocky and Philadelphia? My bad.

The Robocops movies were set in Detroit but made in Dallas(ROBO), Houston(ROBO 2), and Atlanta(ROBO 3).

Jason Lyrics was filmed and I believe set in Houston.

Though Long Island isn't an actual city, The Great Gatsby shows what life was like on our north shore back in the 1920s.

Atlanta has ATL...one of the most unintentionally funny movies of all time.

I love Ferris Bueller's Day Off. It always makes me want to go to Chicago.

I'm not sure which would represent Tucson, but many of the movies filmed here were at Old Tucson Studios (in particular, westerns) -
